    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.
    I have the same machine also, mine is treadle only tho and made in 1923. If you search Ebay, you can find a manual and attachments for it and just about everything else it made need. They are very common and really neat machines

    This is my new second hand machine. Ramblinrev says it's a good one. Cleaned it up, oiled, checked out - sews good and has hardly been used. Now I can do zigzag!

    Just got my first machine (hand-me-down from my grandmother in-law) had it serviced and used it on my first project yesterday. It's amazing how much more I respect people who MYOG after attempting to sew in a straight line all day yesterday

    Dug this out of dad's garage today. Cleaned and oiled it up and it works pretty good for being out there for 15 years. This was a Christmas gift from grandpa to grandma in '55.



    I think I have been bitten by the bug. It's been 21 years since I used one of these things in high school.

    Singer 77-1


    Consew 2053R


    Juki MO2516N


    I should probably take pics of the rest but I'll get to that after I get some real work done. I am a tailor so these are kind of my bread and butter.

    Edit - will figure out picture posting soonish

    Edit - I think I got it this time
