    I've been wasting a lot of time in the vintage machine section :lol: Finally decided it was such a waste my babies were sitting in the basement so we just brought them up & hopefully by tonight they'll be back in use.

    Pics are before any cleaning, I just dusted a little. The International Champion I believe is made by National? I had a list of the info I found out when I got it but I've moved a few times since, this was a freecycle rescue and I've used it but the shuttle is a pain because I only have one little spool. I did get a ton of great attachments with it. I can't find a serial number anywhere...oh, doh! It's in my pic, lol.

    I'll post others as a reply.

    My Singer, serial G4036648. Another freecycle find, I had to take it apart to put it in a small car, lol. This one sews beautifully, I did some leather work with it a few years ago.

    and my Brother, model 1351-A, made in Japan. I have the book somewhere but I contacted brother and she's from '67 or '68, I scored it in a thriftstore for $15 and it sews great. I converted it from a knee pedal to foot but I liked it better before, gotta reattach after I repair a bad spot on the back of the cabinet. Most days this cabinet just holds my modern machine I use most often.

    I have one more, a coffin lid, violin bed machine from 1896 but it's not here and I'm not sure when I'll be able to pick it up. It needs some work, was found in a barn. I thought I had pics online somewhere but can't find them.
