here is a photo of one in very nice condition:
Before I show you mine and my workdesk, let me tell you what happened when I got the machine home.
The machine has the foot controller hard wired to the machine, so it was there. The power cord was not! So I borrowed one from another machine and ordered the cord ($12.00) The machine ran great! But the cabinet was missing the hinge pins!
So I ordered those ($7.00) and rigged the machine to sit in the hole so I could use it - I have done this many times before with other machines, it usually works just fine.
Well not this time, I stood up and lightly bumped the cabinet and Bang the machine fell through the hole and it the floor!! First time for everything I guess!
The machine was fine! However the bake light plug was crushed ( this was the borrowed power cord) No surprise this machine is 40lbs of cast iron!
If I named sewing machine - I don't , but if I did this would be Black Beauty.
The machine has really been used and abused:
for some unknown reason:
the lamp shade has been sawed in half
And the foot pedal has had the toe rest sliced off??
The decals are all gone:
This is one used machine!!
Today the new power cord arrived and my hinge pins!
Here she is all tucked up in her new cabinet!!
Cleaned, oiled and given a little TLC!
It sews perfectly and has a very good motor. This machine will sew 1200 stitches a minute!
I can't wait to start thread painting with this machine!!
