    Show Us Yor Thread Injector

    I was doing a little maintenance today, de-fuzzing and oiling, and thought maybe everyone would like to share a pic of their thread injector.

    I'll start. Mines a 50's vintage Singer Style-O-Matic 328K. Cast body and steel gears. It's a workhorse. I've sewn through multiple layers of heavy leather, multiple layers of awning fabric, multiple layers of webbing, yet it also handles the lightest silnylon, ripstop and no-see-um. It's in the factory cabinet and has a box full of different presser feet, stitch discs, gathering attachment and a few peices that I don't even know what they are for.



    Let's see yours!

    This is the one I used when making KAQs. It is a Janome 7330. I also have a Singer 500A that is in pristine condition.

    When it ever dies (and from the looks of it, I'd say it won't ever) it will make a great boat anchor!

    I see you put a paint mark on all the places that need to be oiled. That's a great idea!

    Mid 1950 Singer Featherweight 221 with my monster Rowenta steam iron (with water tank!) in the background. The Jerry Chair, some over mitts, a couple of fleece things are what I've recently made on this machine.

    I have two other machines - one (with all the fancy stitches) is in the shop, and the other one should go to the shop. Both Bernina.
