Hi,
New member here - but old fan of vintage sewing machines!
I am looking for the user/technical manual for my new baby - Adler 189A.
If anyone can e-mail (pdf if possible!) to me I can start getting Bessie up and running :>[wink]
Thanks - love this site!

Hilltophomesteader, sorry about that.  I get confused about who is who sometimes.

Parts look good to me.   Sent you and email through the forum system with mailing info.

I am always (it seems) in desperate need of 66/99 bobbin slide plates, if you come across any. I'm also casually looking for a rough finish black White motor assembly, for the embossed machines.

Homemade cider sounds amazing.

Yes, I have that problem, too.  Currently need 3 of them, including for the 185 I brought home from hilltophomesteader. [smile]    Where do they all go?  I know that you have to know the right way to put them back on, but do people just throw them away?

I have a couple of the modern replacements, which work okay, but are such a different metal finish that they stick out like a sore thumb on the machines.

Tell me about it. I have 2 crinkle finish blackslide 128's in bentwood portable cases. One of them has both blackslide plates the other is missing the front plate. Ha. I wonder what the chances are of finding one of those?

A new plate would look ridiculous.

You know... I often tell people that I redo sewing machines because it keeps me out of trouble.
Now I'm thinking that perhaps more restoring and less talking might keep me out of trouble as well.

(rofl)

I got in to vintage sewing machines because I got in to sewing, but VSMAD twisted my sense of 'normal' into something demonstrably unrecognizable as 'normal,' so maybe I should get back to sewing... on the industrials, the Kenmores, the Singers.

I had a heck of a time this weekend rationalizing buying another old machine. I really did. I didn't 'need' it, but maybe it needed me? It's a 1957 Model 37 Kenmore in canary yellow. I just couldn't pass it up. Yeah sure it took a few hours to make it sew and to get it clean... but I like it. I really like it. The controls are simple, the threading intuitive, the darn thing is quiet, and there's 24 cams to play with and sews really well.

And... I have sewing machines. Several that I like just as much. Several that may sew just a little bit better. I don't know what I'll do with this little yellow one, but I get the feeling that there's a reason I brought it back. I just don't know what it is yet. =)

hilltophomesteader -- Any chance you have a spare New Home shuttle and/or bobbin floating around?  I just picked up a New National model without them.

Paul, I've got a shuttle that says New Home on it (see pic) and the correct bobbin to go with.  The shuttle has just a tiny bit of surface rust.   Yours for postage.  Pm your address - you can Paypal the postage if that works for you.

I thought I had one, but I'm not seeing it right now.  If I come across it, I'll let you know!

Sorry Margaret, I don't.  Mostly I've got odds & ends of things like bobbins, odd feed dogs & slide plates, thousands of needles...

Needles?

Regular normal 15x1's or older odd ones?

If you run across the top portion of the latch on the end the bentwood case to the 1895 Singer 28, I have need of it.  It is secured by a finger knob thingy that fits through the slot on the latch.  I hope this makes sense.

I have an 1894 Singer 27 Phoenix that's missing a needle stop.  Do you happen to have one of those lying around?
