In the spirit of the holidays, and inspired by other generous HF members, I have 3 repaired, cleaned and lubed machines that I am going to offer FOR FREE.
There is a catch, as there always is. Only ask for one, if you NEED it.
And, these all are heavy, all metal housings, 25-30 pounds, and I cannot ship them.
Both of the newer ones are plastic gear drives, but work fine for lighter duty, just no straps or canvas advised.
The Singer Stylist 457 has had the plastic gear replaced, that was the weak link.
The Singer 6221C has had the lower rear housing repaired but does not affect the sewing.
The White model 43 is all metal, and has had the motor drive wheel replaced and has a parts machine with it. Set in a partial cabinet with knee control.
Shipping would probably be more than the machines could be bought for in your local area. So pick up, or arrange hand off transport.
If there is a lot of interest I will draw names for each machine.
Post to the thread.
I would like to have these spoken for by December 5 if possible.
We can arrange pickup, or whatever after that.

Very awesome of you!!!! Thanks for being HF.
Look up before you hook up!!
That be a great for me, except I have 4 already. This'll make someone's Christmas.
Merry Christmas to you too, Santa "TZ" Claus.
I rehabed a Franklin Rotary (White bought the Franklin brand in 1924) that looks very much like the parts machine you have. It runs so quiet you have to watch the needle to see if you pressed the pedal. I just wish it had reverse.
Very generous! I don't need one, but you'll make someone who does very happy! Glad I know you, friend!
Mountains have a dreamy way
Of folding up a noisy day
In quiet covers, cool and gray.

Aw man! I've been searching for a while for a good deal on a good sewing machine so I can get into DIY. I certainly need one, but I think I live a bit too far away from michigan. oh well! Like everyone else said, this is a super generous offer! You're a good man, TZ!
Very cool TZ. You're definitely gonna make someone's Christmas. You're a star.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace without end to you.
