For the person with the 1954 'new' Singer FW, I have one made in 1955. I purchased it in 1956, new. It runs as good as it did in 1956. Enjoy. I have 2 other machines, Elna Quilter's Dream & an HV 855 Sapphire. Love them all but the FW is my standby when the others need to see the doctor. It is light so it is my go to class machine.
