P purchased a circa 1950's Singer portable off e-bay a few months ago. The belt was pretty well gone and the fly wheel kept slipping. I saw he bought a new belt so I replaced it, blew out the dust, oiled everything up and it works great. It's a little on the slow side, but certainly a functional machine. It will be a great loaner machine.
Tonight is Folk Moot so I will bring my socks with me and should have them ready to felt by the time I get home. I can, hopefully, hand them off to Niklos at the event on Saturday.
Edit: Done! Had to felt them twice, but they fit Padruig so they should fit Niklos. Yay!
