Sewing Machine Not Stitching?I have an old Singer Featherweight, and it has been a trusty machine. It was sewing fine, but all of a sudden it decided not to sew. The needle remains threaded and enters and exits the material, but no stitch is left behind. Sometimes it will start to stitch, but then nothing.

Troubleshooting Electrical Circuit?While vacuuming last weekend, I knocked the vacuum cleaner into something and the cord sparked at the base; it's old. We got rid of it. However, at the same time it sparked, my husband heard crackling noises from our plasma TV, also kind of old.


reel mower in pieces

Age and Value of Reel Mower?I believe this mower was my grandfather's. I would guess the 40s or 50s? The handle says "New Favorite" -- American Lawn Mower Co. Can anyone hazzard a guess? Of course I could never sell it, because I can't keep the carb clean on my Toro!

They have excellent lines and bones, they do, however, need to be recovered and the springs repaired. Any suggestions? I have tried calling upholstery places to no avail and the same with restoration places.

light with black and white wires

No Ground Wire on Nightlight?I bought a photocell nightlight that you install into a junction box. It was from a thrift store but new in the packaging. The instructions say it should have 3 wires, but it only has 2. The white and the black. There is no ground wire. Can I still use this night light without a ground wire?
