    Yeah, which is good once you get the hang of it (took me awhile). The old Singers are great and almost indestructable. You have to replace the belt every 10 or so years though it seems.

    They don't make `em like they used to... :smirk:

    I've found I have to replace the belt on my old SInger because the leather (on the older belts) or plastic (on the newer ones) gets old and begins to deteriorate, not because of any problem related to the machine.

    I used to have a White treddle machine but my mother stole it. I'll get it back some day....

    Jinx-- About that prom dress. I once hand pleated 9 yards of fabric into a 30" waist. Took me forever and right after I finished my mother told me she had a pleater foot that would have done it automatically on the machine in a matter of minutes. *sigh* That was the last 1780s ballgown I made. ;)

    Yup, the problem seems to be that the old leather belts eventually stretch but it has nothing to do with the machine - I don't think ours has had any problems for 40 years!
