    My husband is not a junker! But he was at this guy's house and saw an old Singer in the junk pile. He told the guy to not pitch it until he spoke with me. We went today and picked the poor thing up. I figure if people can take old rust buckets and make them into shiny vintage cars, we can do this, too. From the S/N (G7462571) it appears to be a model 15, made around September 1919. He won't bring it into the house until he is sure that all the vermin are out of it. I started printing Lostn51's instructions for taking it apart, but ran out of ink. I will take pictures of the before. I sure hope we can do this!

    Good luck. Can't wait to see the pics. You're right, they do this on TV all the time. You can do this too.

    If you run into any issues just let me know and I will try to walk you through them. Yes it is fun taking an old machine and making it new again and believe me it is cheaper than cars and easier to hide them!!
