Unfortunately I do not.  As an FYI, the shuttle is virtually identical to a Singer 12 but with a nose notch for the carrier.

Are there any machines that don't use a shuttle, and the bobbin just sits in the oscillating carrier? Probably not as there would be no way to get tension.
I just checked the Etonia. The shuttle race is not at all like the Jones.

I thought I would share two treadle machines that I currently have for sale.
Located in Northern Virginia for pickup and both are clean, tuned, and sew nicely.
1874 Singer model 12 New Family and Davis vertical feed (HAVF) from approximate 1890.
The Davis is the same that is shown on the Needlebar page here.
Drop me a note for prices and more info.

I’m looking for a replacement reverse button casing for my Morse Fotomatic. It’s the only flaw in this otherwise perfect machine head, so it would be great to get it replaced.

Failing that...would a bit of superglue or epoxy and a clamp (off the machine, obviously) repair this, do you think?

I think I might try the repair on the machine if possible. Having once removed the front plate and reverse button on a Brother which is similar, I can tell you getting that front stuff back together is harder than you think. It took me many tries over several days and inventing many new swear words to finally get mine back together. I think it was the very colorfully worded threat of turning the machine into yard art that finally made it go back together properly. Lesson learned, I won't do it again unless absolutely necessary.

Thanks, Cari! I’m given to...colorful...language anyway, but forewarned is forearmed. I’m a little leery of somehow sticking together things that oughtn’t be stuck, so I’m going to have to think through the repair carefully.

Maybe if you use a toothpick to get just a tiny amount of glue in the crack so it won't squish out behind it, and wrap it with a rubber band to hold it together while the glue dries. Just a thought.

On my PC, I use the free software program "Irfanview"

My phone doesn't take pics so I use a real camera. I have the camera set to VGA(I think that's what the setting is called) so the pics are perfect for uploading, no resizing necessary.

If you right click the picture and click on "properties" on the menu, then click on "details" tab,  it will tell you what size it is. Anything over ~2MB is probably going to be over sized. This information is based on you using a Windoze computer, if you are in the fruit orchard(aka Apple)I will have to research it.

If you need to downsize it on a computer I use PhotoScape, on my Android phone I use Photo Resizer or Spiral Seed apps.

Anyone need a Necchi BF Mira (the straight stitch version), a turquoise White Zigzag with a whack of cams, or a Pfaff 230? All in an online auction closing Thursday evening. Some other things as well. Vintage patterns (lots of children's patterns), doll carriages, fancy cake pans, etc.
Guelph, Ontario. North and west of Toronto.
(Maybe a bit of a downside: They don't ship. Everything has to be picked up. [frown])

I want to buy a shuttle, 3 or so bobbins, and appropriate needles for my New Home Treadle machine.  
1 New Home resized.jpg

15 New Home resized.jpg 

By looking at the base, can you tell me what the original treadle cabinet might have looked like?  I am looking for a cabinet--hopefully will find one in Wisconsin.

Mrs. D here is a pic of the treadle cabinet for my New Home like yours. 20X1 needles are no longer made but the original needle and shuttle can be found on Ebay. I am sure you know that the 15X1 can be cheated down in the needle clamp about 1/8" and will work great. I have 20X1 needle but use the 15X1 all the times to save the original needles. Can't tell any diff in them. I did find the original pulls for the drawers and now are installed on the cabinet. Love this machine.WI and IN trip 076.jpg

That's a lot of gold, and colors too. I have never seen these decals before. I love the roses in center of the bed. There's a slight chance I will come across a VSII with roses, perhaps a 28 or maybe an Improved family. Does this type of New Home behave well? I would go for at least 6 bobbins, it's hard to live with less. I prefer 12 for machines I use.  I don't know how common this type of long bobbin is.

This New Home is a smooth running machine with a great stitch. I have it in a treadle as you can see and one with the original hand crank. Wonderful machines

Beautiful decals on both. Are the rose decals the same on both your machines? I remember your treadle New Home from another post Steve, and I see Skipper has the same one. From my screen it looks like lilly of the valley, and a stately home in green surroundings. I have the remains of a coffe set from my great grand parent,  I think it's bone porcelain, very fine and delicate, and it has lilly of the valley pattern on all the pieces. They were married in 1904 and it was bought around that time. I don't think I would have dare to use the rose deal machines, they are in such nice condition. Maybe wrap cling film or teflon sheets on top to prevent wear.

Wow Skipper.  Thanks for the information and photos of your New Home.  I am pleased to read your note--suggesting to use the 15x1 sewing machine needle.   That's great news! 

Your machine is beautiful.  I am jealous--wishing mine was a hand crank also.  I'd like nothing better than to take it to the shows this summer where I demonstrate and sell my quilts.  

Here's a photo of the boss and screw on my New Home.  Do you think it is possible to convert it to a hand crank, or should I leave well enough alone and keep searching for a New Home treadle cabinet?

Glenn lined up the hand crank, drilled a hole and bolted it on. We had a new home someone drilled a hole drilled for a motor and we just used a bolt and a nut to hold it. Worked fine.

I would leave the boss alone and not mess with it. A singer HC will not work on  the New Home. I did modify a Ruby (New Home) without the boss by aligning a Singer HC and drilling a hole for the bolt and it works great. I am lucky to have an original New Home HC with the machine with the roses and it will fit all my NH that have a boss. The boss on the NH is lower on the the pillar than the Singer so the singer HC will not work.

Thanks for your good advice Skipper.  I'll leave the boss alone.  I found a NH machine and cabinet online.  I made an offer.  Offer was declined.  I'll post about it in the check it out category.

Anyone in the Detroit area interested in a treadle? There is an auction in Leamington Ontario coming up with at least one. It isn't in the written listing but shows up in the first picture. It may be something other than the usual Singer as the treadle wheel doesn't show in the picture, and the irons look a bit different.
[lm0225Z001]  Of course, it could also be just that the wheel/pulley has been removed. Can't see the machine hanging underneath so it may have been removed as well and all there is here is the cabinet.

I have a new home Handcrank and Head that are only missing that screw.  I got the Head because of the decals and it was cheap.  I got the handcrank in a trade for other components.   I am probably NOT going to end up putting the effort into getting it finished. (screw, case and all)  so I might be talked into selling the New Home handcrank!  We will start the bidding and (doing best Dr Evil impression))at $1 million dollars

Steve, I would be so interested in buying the NH hand crank from you.  Please let me know, Dr. Evil.

Ah. So that's why it looks different.

Here's another auction, this one in Stratford on Tuesday (too far for me).
http://theauctionadvertiser.com/cgi-bin/xslsearcx.pl?s1=159355756
There is what looks like a portable 50's or later sm in a trapezoid case - not mentioned in the listing,
[ls0227Z017] 
and 'electric cabinet sewing machines' (plural) listed but not shown in the pictures.

Also in the listing but not seen in the pictures: 'quilt frame'.

Stratford is too far for me and I don't want to bid without seeing the machine up close, or have them ship it. Who knows? That trapezoid case might be empty 😉

There are two sizes of the trappy case. One for the 301s and a full size one that I've seen many models in. 15-91, 201-2, 401, 206, 306, etc.......

 Hi Cari, There may be different types of Singer Trappy cases too.

 I think as the 301 (short bed) is a full size sm, the 301 long bed might be able to use a shorter case.

 I know the 411G case is bigger than the 431G (with fold-up bed) case, (both aren't near me),
and they don't have that 'grass-cloth'(?) look. The cases each snap in under the bottom of the sms.

Mrs. D., that's the slide plate. Check here - https://shop.sew-classic.com/Bobbin-Cover-Slide-Plate-Singer-15-115-237-HA-1-clones-Kenmore-SCP15147.htm

I see a new plate for sale but not just the spring. It's cheap so you could put the new spring on your plate. Or, you could email Jenny and see if she can get just the spring.

I need advice where to buy a replacement hinge screw for the short bed on a 301A Singer. The hinge screw in the front is there, but the rear hinge screw is missing. I just got it today. It is beauti-mous. 1954 with original case.

I always start with eBay and tend to put in a search for hard-to-find items.  I have gotten a few sewing parts on bonanza.com.  Further information is here: http://singer301.com/index.html but I don't know where to direct you to a parts number list.

Yep.  That's what you want and yes it's highway robbery but you'd better snap them up quick before they disappear!  [frown]

Hi Christy,

You are a wizard--thanks for the advice to go ahead and buy those hinge screws for the short bed on the 301A.  I appreciate you.

I just checked my stash of miscellaneous sewing machine screws before I read this, and didn't find one.  Glad Ebay could help.  I doubt that odd little screw/post shows up real often.

I looked at my 301, and the screw that you need is the one on the left in the picture together with its washer in case your washer is missing.

Gee--$20 just for screws?  Oh get me a chair--I'm gonna faint.  

Would a screw for a Featherweight hinge plate fit?  Maybe check the various Featherweight forums and sites. Maybe they would be less expensive. I think the bobbin holder for a Featherweight fits the 301, maybe the hinge plate screws do also.

That is one beautiful machine!

Ugh! I can't stand and refuse to buy from sellers who part out working machines. And to jack up the price to boot! But what do you do when it's all you can find, I know. I have a couple of machines that have been waiting a long time for a part to show up from a truly broken machine.
