  4. Iv'e just had some Polyester Braided (Lockstitch) Genuine Geneva Thread Si Serve from Colledges and its running through the machine with a twist in it. Didn't notice it so much with the last stuff I had. Any thoughts Keith or Peter?

  6. No takers, I'll play on my own then...Where are those locks?

  8. And don't forget PAPER is spelt PEPAR ....It's 5th line up on the right. I actually gave up on it... I lost the will to live... I got all the answers apart from PEPAR but my page was such a muddle I could'nt see where all the left over letters were and so I embarked on random answers. I think it's MERRY CHRISTMAS "something" and personally I think I should at least get a bag of Malteasers for effort.
  9. I can moan if I want..... I mean who cant spell PAPER
  10. I'm not playing any more.............................Iv'e had a few goes at it, drove me nuts ........................No wonder I got so many wrong. ...... I'd demand my £3 back but as it's for charidy great mate I wont.

  14. Enjoyable watch last night...... Nothing some of us oldies didn't know already... I mean who can't make a thread with hog bristles.... https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bvg6r4 Quite fancy Steph McGovern too.
  15. Glad you're OK Eric.... I've been sorting out my Victor this evening. She was missing stitches. Think I have her sorted now, spreader point was a touch off.................Setting up an old Victor is like making love to a beautiful woman. You've got to caress her parts. Breathe softly and gently. And give every inch of her your loving attention. And make sure you've got a nice full oil can.

  18. I can imagine Eric. I don't suppose many of us ever had a chance to use one. ...How are you mate?
  19. I agree. I have a really old one down in the cellar. No clutch on the wheel. And they were not using old type thread. Using nylon. And she was winding with one hand and guiding her work with the other. Distinct lack of foot hand coordination. My most favorite bit after Steph was the Goodyear welt stitcher.
