I'm going to go nuts! I have my grandmother's 1950s Singer Slant Needle Rocketeer, and my mom's 1960s Singer (name slipped my mind) that both work beautifully, other than the fact that the thread is constantly breaking in both of them! I can't figure it out and have already checked everything I can think of.
Sorry, haven't been on cafemom in many weeks. We have been so unbelievably busy with every day jam packed with so much to do with everything the children are involved in. We haven't even had the chance to get seeing machines back out. I'll let you know when I try it again. Hopefully this week, because it's my only week of the year with no outside obligations!
