“Seeing how I belong to several forums and have never introduced my self to any of them.”

My name is LaMar; I live in South East Idaho. I’m a fifty-one year old Male.
My passion in no specific order is, Vintage sewing machines, Vintage cameras, and old single shot firearms. I also like to do western reenacting. Which means traveling around to several ghost towns, and participating in several mountain man rendezvous.

I have a small sewing machine collection consisting of.

99K in cabinet (3-26-1957 this is my favorite Singer)
15-75 (7-15-1957 second favorite)
15-91 (7-10-1947)
66-? Red Eye decals (9-5-1917 in good shape for it’s age. This is going in my treadle)
327k (it’s green)

Vintage Japanese;
Replica Singer 128 Hand Crank (says Morse 228 Deluxe with reverse)
Western Auto Wizard (blue color made by Brother also a favorite)
Dressmaker model 5700 in a Singer cabinet (white color it maybe made by Toyota)
Dressmaker model 310B (made by Riccar a copy of the 315SU)

Necchi BU Mira with the Wonder Wheel attachment in cabinet (it’s green also)
White Family Rotary in cabinet 1930??

You would think I also like to sew with all of these machines. I do.
Thanks; LaMar

Welcome MaLar

I am glad you decided to introduce yourself. What eclectic interests you have! I am sure you will find more from the fine people here. I am curious about WHAT sort of sewing you do on all those machines? :bolt:

I tried to upload a photo. But couldn't get it small enough. How in the world do you get an acceptable shot at 1 byte????

I have been sewing a suit from the late 1780's more or less for a dinner we have coming up. Wool pants and waist coat. And a Muslin shirt, and drawers.
