    Yeah, friend helped, I couldn't have done it on my own, I did hook her up though. Gave her a hammock, with full suspension system that was 100 percent DIY. Thanks for all the great advice folks!

    The newest member of my family a 1953 model 66. It smells like it spent some time an a smoking house but other than that seems to be in pristine shape. I think that might be the original rubber on the bobbin winder and the cord is supple with no cracks. A little oil and she'll be stitching away.

    Latest find

    Picked up this White Rotary machine model 43. I really like the looks of this one. It's a little different for me. It uses the knee bar instead of a foot pedal and it needs the handwheel turned opposite to all of my other machines.




    Simple machine

    There's something about those heavy duty slow stitching machines that I really like.

    Nice. What's the serial number on that one?

    I have enough trouble remembering which way to turn the hand wheel without having one that runs backwards. Did they come off their asking price?

    Lol. When I first got it home and was trying to grab the bobbin thread I was a little concerned. I finally notice that the top thread was being grabbed when I turned the hand wheel the other direction.

    The machine has a car like sound to it when it starts to run. There is no belt. The hand wheel sits against another small rubber wheel like two gears. The motor is mounted on the back with a spring loaded bracket so it puts constant pressure against the hand wheel.

    I whittled down the price a bit a little. With the Zig Zag and Button hole attachments, several different feet, the cabinet as well as an extra bobbin case, 10 bobbins and packs of needles, I didn't want to negotiate too much. Lots of extras that I would have had to buy anyways so it worked out pretty fairly.

    How do you sew with the needle/throat plate 'recessed' in the work table?
