I found this beautiful machine on craigslist.
As you can see in the pics she has her original cabinet too.
Before I even plugged her in, I gave her a good cleaning, with lots of oil and grease.
We plugged her in and she squealed and fussed until the oil and grease got to the places that had been so dry and uncared for.
She came with the '0' cam.
She has a knee bar and I ordered extra cams from ebay Sunday evening.
I joined a Slantomatic group on Yahoo and downloaded two manuals, the 503 and the 500.
The 503 had a great exploded view of all the oiling places and the gears to grease.
I am really excited to play with her.
I now have a machine that can zig-zag.
With the price of the cams coming I have less than $50.00 invested in the whole kit and kaboodle.
What a blessing this machine is to me.
I have named her Faith.
I would love to hear from anyone who has one like Faith to gleam your knowledge of do's and don'ts.
Blessings to all,
