A Timeline of The Featherweight Motor – The Singer Featherweight Shop

It is likely to be the first part to display signs of age on almost any machine, so it is important that the motors are properly cared for. When a motor does wear out, it can be replaced by any original Featherweight motor. (It can also be rewound, maintaining originality, but we will address that later.) Of course, there would be exceptions but having the original motor on a Featherweight does not necessarily increase monetary value, but it can add to the appeal and sentimentality of the machine. In this post we will be looking at the various markings of the motors and in particular, the series number in the lower right hand corner, on the top of the band (see photo below.) These numbers indicate the motor series. Civil War Quilts: 15 Fort Sumter.

They do fit well along the baseboard of your sewing area which is where I store mine when not in use. Materials Needed For The Basting Quilt Frame.

So How Does This “Best Call Blocker” Work? The concept is fairly simple. First, you’ll need to have Caller-ID at your home and it requires a landline (or a VOIP service that has a standard phone cord output to a regular landline phone – such as Ooma). When someone calls your house, the system checks its “Black-List” and “White-List” to see if the phone number has called your house before. If the number has been “blacklisted”, then the call blocker simply hangs-up on them – no matter how frequently they call. Your phone will never ring and unless you check the system’s caller-ID, you’ll never know the call was blocked.

If the phone number is on the “White List”, then the call blocker allows the call through and the caller never knows you have the system installed on your phone line. If the phone number isn’t on either list, then the call blocker reads this statement: Reporting Calls to FTC. Se connecter à Facebook. Free Quilt Patterns & Tutorials.
