    Hi all I was asked by a person (actually several folks have asked) if we could have a section that would only be for photos of our machines and a brief description of it. You know like the Make, Model, Year (if you know), And serial numbers including the JA and JC numbers if they are Japanese built and have them. This would not be a section for discussion but a place to document the machines that we have in our possession or had in some cases.

    We can have the discussion in the VSMS thread with the photos again if you like but here I would like to catalog our machines if we can.

    Now I wonder how many pages this will turn out to be? :mrgreen:

    We are trying to document the machines that our members own or have owned. Just building a data base as such so the quality dosent have to be the absolute best just an example of the machine or decal variation.

    I don't know if this one is classed as vintage but I love it: I think it is 1950 - 60s

    I also have, in mint condition, a 1939 Singer, will take a pic and post it in the next day or so as Love it, it is a hand controlled one, debating whether to add a motor or not :?:

    Here's the treadle I inherited from my grandmother who received it as a gift from her husband. She put miles of thread through this old machine in the 71 years she owned it. My avatar shows the closed cabinet.

    My two vintage machines are below!

    The first is my Nanna's old Bernina 530-2 Record, purchased when she lived in England. She'd learned to sew on her mother's (older) Bernina while growing up in Switzerland and this was her first machine purchased just for her sometimes around 1957-58. She sewed on it every day for almost fifty years. I was so delighted when she gave me her machine! It has several embroidery stitches.

    The second is my Singer Featherweight, affectionally named Miss Anise. I bought her at an estate sale and she's the loveliest little machine ever. Cute as a button and sews a beautiful stitch.

    The Two Spools Sewing machine. The last patent date for both is Sept 1913. First one is the National Two Spools and the second one is the Eldredge Two Spools. The second spool sits in a " spool can" instead of a bobbin.

    Two Davis Vertical Feeds (Davis NVF ~1910-1915) that use 15x1 standard needles. Top machine's tension dial is different from the bottom machine's tension dial. Both use bullet shuttles.

    I'll have to get Fenella (a Singer Spartan) out of the closet and take good pics; the only current pics I have are fresh from the thrift shop and she's still pretty grungy in them, but here's the rest of them.
