    A little elbow grease... two clean slides and needle plate.

    Still need work and polishing, but they are clean now and a serial number is visible.

    Nice cleanup on the chrome. I love how the whole pillar can be exposed for cleaning as well ... that's a bonus!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Funny you should say that... Heather's comment was that this machine reminded her of a little old lady dressed up for a night out on the town...

    The pictures do not do it justice. the tri-colored leaves look exactly like the three colors of black hills gold...

    She is REALLY stiff in the joints, but she's already had her first dose of sewing machine glucosamine (tri-flo) and is already moving better. I am being VERY gentle with that cause I can still feel a "limp" in her walk. and I want to see what is gummed up.

    I have spent the last few days with a Wheeler and Wilson #8 dismantled on my kitchen table because All of my efforts (and Heathers) have been focused on getting my friends new armor and padding built and adjusted for US National tryouts this weekend. We are DONE with that finally, so the sewing machines can get back to being loved on. After the #8 is reassembled, this little lady will be getting a "spa" day.
