June Mfg. Co. "Improved Singer"(7 Photos) I purchased this machine in July of 2004 in Mount Vernon, Washington. It was manufactured by The June Mfg. Co. ,Chicago, Ill. U.S.A., sometime in the early 1880's. When I first purchased the machine, I believed it to be a true "Singer" machine, with an odd set of treadle irons.
When I began to clean the machine and it's cabinet up, I discovered that it wasn't a Singer machine after all, but rather a 'clone'. I first noticed the wording on the brass? badge, and then the "J.Mfg.Co." in smaller letters under the large "Singer" name on the treadle irons.
I can only say that I must have been 'fooled' by the brass? badging when I first spotted the machine, along with the name "Singer" being blatantly displayed on the treadle irons.
Obviously, this was one time that I didn't mind being 'fooled' on a purchase!

Singer 78-1(5 Photos) Singer Model 78-1 from around 1920. One from a run of 300 78 class machines that started in August 1919. This was my father's Upholstery Machine from about 1950 until 1978 when he replaced it with a compound feed consew.
sansom treadle and unknown emblem(2 Photos) I bought a generic manual on ebay with no sewing machine name on it, but it does have an emblem in the treadle plate. Does anyone recognize it? I have attached a photo of the treadle plate. I collect SM manuals and have found that it was common in the 1800's for sewing machine manufacturers that sold machines to dealers for badging by them (the dealers), and supplied them with generic manuals, to often put their (the manufacturers) emblem or name in the manual someplace. In this case the emblem is on the treadle plate.
The attachment manual that goes with it is for an Original-Victoria but I have not been able to find the name or manufacturer anyplace. I have also attached a photo of the machine. Also, where can I find a list of emblems for British and American machines. I have a couple websites for German machines but none for the others.
Dan's Wilcox and Gibbs(3 Photos) Here are some photos of my Wilcox and Gibbs treadle sewing machine. I believe that it is a model 7. It was restored by my father before he passed on.
The serial number makes it about 1875 manufacture.
Pages from singer Book(4 Photos) Attached are some photos from the Singer book. The cover doesn't seem to want to photograph or scan without looking like this...perhaps because of the texture of the cover. The photo of the "first practical" sewing machine is directly across from the in
Making Reproduction moulds(6 Photos) These are some pictures I have taken showing my method of making replacement drawer decorations.
1) the only surviving original is placed in a box ready to have latex moulding compound applied.
2)The latex being applied
3)The completed mould on left with plaster backing and another being made right
4) post moulding treatments from l to r: straight out of the mould, flash removed,grit blasted to provide a key for the stain, complete ready for the job.
I used polyester casting resin tinted by mixing umber & a dash of mahogany colours. The final stain is a light mahogany rubbed into the resin to create & enhance the effect.
I am not known for taking short cuts in as much as I believe that the quality of the job is long remembered after the cost has been forgotten.
Aviator(1 Photos) Here's the aviator my husband just found for me. He's really into historic aviation and the joke with the family is that he's the only guy they know who can combine airplanes with sewing. Anyone with possible date and info on this machine--would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Margaret Stewart, Crestview, FL

127/128 Singers and the decals and their respective names(2 Photos) These are not sewing machine images. Someone posted a question about a tool and in my research I stumbled across these pages which have to do with the 127/128 Singers and the decals and their respective names. I thought it would be cool to post these since they are pulled from a Factory Singer Service Manual and not some independent article.
There has been debate over the source of the "naming" of the Early Singer decal designs, but I never saw an authoritive explanation. I'm hoping that if these haven't been posted or presented that these will end the debate.

De Luxe DELUXE FAMILY SEWING MACHINE (Singer 15 CLone)(5 Photos) Distributed by Revill Sewing Machines Brisbane Queensland Australia.
Converted from electric to treadle 2008, as the original cabinet sustained heavy water damage during a move 4 years ago and was unrepairable. The treadle is a singer original but I have kept the head (1912 Singer 15 model, very worn and frozen when picked up, now moves freely) for further attention and to preserve it.
No wear to decals on this clone, just 2 minor scratches on the arm. Appears to have had either little or no use in its life. The people I purchased it from were not even aware that there was a machine in the cabinet.
Domestic(5 Photos) Domestic treadle. Any info on this would be appreciated.

1945-1949 White Rotary Model 43 help! power/controller cord(4 Photos) I have a 1945-1949 (dated by Husqvarna-Viking) White Rotary model 43 Godzilla in a smart Queen Anne leg cabinet that I bought at a charity shop. For safety reasons, the cord had been cut, so I need to replace it. The female end (that plugs into the motor) is 1 1/8 inch long by 9/16 wide, with 3 holes. The holes are not evenly spaced - two are closer together. It is also a rectangle, not like the oval shape on ebay.
The recess on the motor side is shallow, so the oval might work, but I would like to try and locate a correct cord first because it mounts to the inside of the cabinet for the knee controller.
Does anyone know if a compatible cord, or a re-wire-able replacement female end is available?
