Yesterday, my hubby and I went and picked up this little gem...found it advertised on the internet and being it was only 60 miles from here I answered the ad and bought it for $50!!!
It is a 1951 Singer 201-2 and the cabinet was included! The cabinet hinges are bent and missing some screws but DH said he can fix that for me... the machine itself sounds good but needs some tension adjustments and most of all it just needs alot of TLC!!!
What do you suggest I use to clean it with....it is VERY dusty. Help!! It just seems to me where I read somewhere that you shouldn't use rubbing alcohol on these older machines but that was the first thing that came to mind...is that ok to use? If not, then what?
