It will probably just need the tension adjusted and a good oiling. There is a shop in Talbot Street, Dublin that serviced mine. Again...amazing result!

I think it is just called The Sewing Machine Shop. It is directly opposite Guiney's in Talbot St. Good luck with it.

Did you need to replace the belt if so where did you get it. You have golden hands thats a work of art-well done.

Thank you all, actually i was very afraid the original belt will not fit as I replaced all the original wooden table with a new one and as expected, new table thickness and measures will have some effect on ability of belt to fit in... but thanks God thngs went fine and original belt got fitted perfectly...

But its still a good question: from where to get a new leather belt in case original one got worn and not useable any more?! if any one knows then please tell us...

I would like to add another things to this sewing machine, i am thinking of a metal chair with antique design, I can imagine it in golden color to match sewing table frame and maybe some golden coutions... any ideas are welcomed :)

Cheers...

You should be able to get a replacement belt on Ebay. Good luck.

Well done. Granny Russell would be so proud of you!! I spent hours as a very small child watching Granny making "cushions for the Missions". She was always happiest when she was working with her singer sewing machine. :-))

I can't believe what you've done with it!!! I got a Singer machine from a fellow jumbletowner in Ennis that i wanted as a hall table. the metal is very plain i love how ornate yours is!. I just sanded it down varnished and gave the metal a lick of black paint and some wood glue. I was so chuffed i was going to put it up here. Soooo glad i didn't now! u've put me to shame this is really amazing.

The colouring works so well. I got my machine up and running again about 2 bottles of wd40 later lol!!!

Really well done it's really amazing! Put it in full view!!!!
