I wandered some junk and antique stores today. At one antique store, they had a featherweight. It appeared to be in good condition. The decals were almost perfect, not a lot of wear showing on the bed. I did notice that it was missing the bobbin case and it will require new wiring from the machine to the original foot pedal. No manual or case but a box of numerous attachments/feet.
The guy at the shop didn't know anything about the machine and couldn't tell me what year it was. I couldn't find the serial number. Can someone tell me where I can find this on a FW?
I think it has been at the shop for a while. It started out at $350, then was discounted to $275. It now has a sticker on it for $150.
Now, is this machine worth $150? Is it possible to find a replacement bobbin case and will it be costly to switch out the electrical cord?
Thanks for any help/advice you can give!!
