A FREE forum with -member photo gallery- for the vintage Chevy, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and any GM builders.

PLEASE Sign Up & Post in the Classified Section  - If you don’t want to talk No Problem  - But Please - List those Parts for Sale or Parts Needed!

As you all know locating any parts for these early GM vehicles is tough, the goal of this forum is to bring the restorers, lowriders, street & rat rodders together. 

There are plenty of forums out there and it's a pain trying to locate Chevy/GM parts tucked in all of those Ford, Dodge, Plymouth etc ads. Some forums don't like mixing restored cars with custom cars, we'll focus on the early BOWTIE's....but mix it up some. To be clear we love all vintage vehicles regardless of make..it's just tough locating the Govt Motors stuff!

To assist in your projects advertising is encouraged & will be FREE for both PRIVATE and COMMERCIAL sellers. 
Don't be a Bowtie Parts Hoarder!


Unlike many other forums you are encouraged to mention other websites and/or forums in your posts or signatures. We even have a list of other forums at the bottom of the page….this is a reference site.

Registration is open......SUGGESTIONS FOR FORMAT ARE WELCOME -and- PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT! ........... It's OK to just sign up ONLY to buy/sell parts!
If you have any problems with registration, account login, posting or uploading
Please contact me via: borderdrop@yahoo.com

Rattiac or anyone else.
Machine: Rex #26-188 commercial unit

Was patching up some blue jeans this morning, all well then.....funny scrunching/binding sound. I thought loose thread got bound up bobbin side. I slide material out and there was a rats nest on the bottom side. I pulled bobbin trimmed reinstalled, tried again.....same.

I pulled bobbin back out, got stronger glasses on and found a piece of thread looped around bobbin spindle. Cleared, cleaned, oiled, changed bobbin spool even. Retried, same!😡  Thought maybe needle was getting dull or perhaps chipped/broke. Replaced needle, tested again....Aarrgggg! Same 😡🤬🤬🤬🤬

What the hell am I missing?????
Pics of the bottom, bobbin side of any material tried.

Update**** I took the bobbin/carrier back out, went to parts house and got some brake clean. Unplugged machine sprayed down exterior pivot points, then tipped machine on its side to get to all under moving parts.
Spayed all down good, air blowed dry and reoiled everything. Plugged in and ran it wide open throttle for several mins, reoiled, ran again then wipped down everything. Put bobbin/carrier back in, rethreaded machine. Grabbed new shop towel, folded and one little crackle sound, then off to the races it went. It's sewing fine now, but I don't know what caused this?

Maybe something got a bit out of adjustment that i didn't notice or a piece of built up dust/oil somewhere? The machine does get body shop type dust on it from time to time. I always air blow and oil before i use it. Would really like to know what was causing this.

Needed a new coaster for my table anyway.😁

Had software guru Krash sign in and fix the automatic picture attachment feature.  Now when you post a picture it will be automatically resized and include a thumbnail image to click on. (see test area)

After the chop I have a couple of seams like this one.  My question is would lead be sufficient to close up and stabilize joints like this or is more welding required?   I can put more weld via TIG or MIG.
