    I LOVE that Raymond, with the beaver details. The irons also had beavers in them as well... I've been looking for one for a while now....

    Beautiful machine!

    Oldhag, Your Raymond is pretty. I didn't know that this machine's decals also had a beaver, very interesting. Also like the cabinet.
    Thanks for posting!

    I love Raymond...doesn't everybody? That is too cool. Can you get a pic of the irons w/the beaver on them?

    Alas, Marie my Raymond is too new to have the Beavers on the irons. I am still searching for an older one but this one fell into my lap so I couldn't resist.

    While camping in West Virginia this past weekend, someone brought a new to me machine. It's a White Rotary. I untied the cabinet for a quick peak before the guys loaded into my van. Looks as tho the the cabinet will need to be re-glued, and some blistered varnish removed and redone. The machine knobs are cracked and almost completely deteriorated.

    The history was that the neighbors bought it when they were newly weds, more for the cabinet than for the machine, as she was not much of a sewer. Their kids are now in college, and none of them wanted the thing, so she had it in her yard sale. My friend mentioned that I restored the vintage machines for 4-H, and the neighbor gave it to her.

    Well,with a story like that, it must have been second hand when they picked it up. It's much older than current college kids. I'll be interested to see what it does when I get it out of the van later today. Then I'll need to go back through the thread to read up on White Rotaries. I'll post some picks, but I know I'll be needing control knobs. It has lots of attachments, including some which look as though they came from some horror chamber.

    Mamie's cabinet has a ruler inlaid into the top of the open cabinet, with this patent date.

    The takeup bar is unique for me...instead of having a hole, it's got a loop...

    I had the featherweight for 10 years before I used it, I had no idea it was so fantastic until I discovered this website about a year ago. Since then, I've discovered that I LOVE the old heavy metal machines that I can actually work on myself. I also have a 1970 Bernina Record 730, just haven't taken a photo yet. All of these work wonderfully and I use them all and am currently trying to sell the 2 year old machine that I don't love :mrgreen:
    I only paid $25 for the International, I can't figure out why the clones have no real value, but I guess it's all in a name.

    Charlee - Completely fabulous treadle. What is it like to use? I bet it's fun.
    The thread take up lever looks a bit unusual. On my Vesta on page 4 the take up lever is a large open hook - you can just about see it in the first photo.

    This is my pre-1900 Industrial machine. It was beyond saving the paint, so I got creative. We just LOVE the table. It has "wings" on left and back that extend the size for quilting. Still have to get the tensioner put back on so I can see if she will sew!!
    Don't know why the pictures are so small. Uploaded to WalMart and ordered disc and prints. Deleted before I posted, so had to copy from their site. Will try again when the disc arrives. Thanks for looking.
