    Singer 66 Red Eye and a Wheeler Wilson Coffin Top

    A dear friend of mine "gave" to me two treadle machines. Bobbins are missing and they need a good clean up. Not something that is an issue for me since I take in "all stray sewing machines" (tee hee) The Red Eye is impeccable; cabinet needs some work but for it's age it isn't bad. Same with the Wheeler Wilson. The Wheeler Wilson's decals are faded. Both machines move easily and will need new belts and a couple of other small elements. Based on the serial numbers they are 110 yrs / and 150 yrs old (although I challenge the WW, because of other research I have done).

    Question: Do you have a favorite on-line place for vintage/antique machine parts? Love the web for info, but I really want to buy (and not have to return) any parts. My local "older than dirt" Singer shop doesn't always have what I need. Based on the serial numbers they are 110 yrs / and 150 yrs old (although I challenge this one, the WW, because of other research I have done. For serial #s, I use ISMACS http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_mach...-database.html and for different manufacturers, I go to their page under Research in their header http://ismacs.net/#. If you know of other resources, please share. Thank you.
