    brother xl2600i

    here's my little workhorse. After buying a couple old broken machines off craigslist, i finally just broke down and bought a new one. Totally worth the $90. Recomend it to anyone looking to get into thread injecting.

    What model is the one on the right? Looks like it might be a walking foot, but I can't quite make out the shank.

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Recently set up a sewing station in my workshop. Made the surface of the sewing machine flush with the table. Table is flush with my workbench. Sewing machine table detaches from workbench and storage cabinet (right) is on wheels which can be rolled away when I'm working on something else.

    Welcome to HF.

    My first use of a sewing machine was to construct a custom seat for my motorcycle, long time ago. Someone here at HF came up the "thread injector" term, I guess as a joke.

    Back in use

    Back in the mid 80's I bought a house and discovered an old Singer sewing machine in the attic. The motor was bad and there was no info with it at all.
    A recent TV program made me think about it again so I got it out and started some on-line research. Well the machine is a model 127 and was made in New Jersey in February of 1916.

    Armed with this info I ordered a new motor/foot switch, drive belt, and lamp. The unit appears to be in good mechanical shape. Still need needles and bobbins. Perhaps convert it back to a treadle unit if a cabinet can be found.
