    I have not heard that saying before Mike, kind of like "the insane taking over the asylum" I am guessing, which might be closer to the truth .

    I just sewed up a pink hammock with contrasting blue thread for my wife on my 99K - that is a really sweet machine. It almost made my crooked sewing straight .

    I shortened up the belt a touch on the old Wheeler and Wilson and ran a few stitches today.
    I have to get up some pics for you all.

    Here is my Great Grandmothers old Wheeler and Wilson D-9.
    We are off to a pretty good start together.

    One of Two

    This is my singer Model 237 Fashion Mate. I think it's from the early 1960s.

    It was made in Italy, so I like to think of it as exotic. It isn't. It is a darn good machine though. It was a gift from my mother. She probably found it at a yard sale or the local repair shop, and even though she had no need of it, she knows a good machine when she sees one. She only uses industrial machines, because she makes the best drapes you'll ever see, but that's off topic. She gave it to me as a house warming gift back in aught-eight, but I've never used it before now, so in a way hammock making (and hammockforums.net) has brought this terriffic machine out of retirement.


    It's a pretty simple machine (which is no doubt why it works so well), and it seems to dry out pretty frequently, so I see the bottom pretty often too.

    I actually taught myself how to sew by reading the manual for this machine (that I was able to download from Singer's website). I also learned that this machine was available in both a motorized and a treadle version, and that it can be easily converted between the two just by moving one belt off and the other on. I'm going to have to keep my eye out for a treadle table. I think it would be nice to have in the case of a power outage.


    I also have a much newer Janomi, but it was out for repairs when I was taking pictures. The singer was used to make my hammock my hex tarp, my bugnet and a bunch of stuff-sacks, so it deserves the attention more anyway. I made most of my wife's hammock with the Janome before it seized up though.

    Ok, that's it. I'm now in search of an injector to do some DIY projects.
