I found this old gal on a yard sale for $30 and since it was my birthday, I brought her home. All parts move smoothly but I haven't tried sewing on her. She is very clean but will need her joints oiled. From what I can find on Ismacs she is from 1877.....there are a lot of attachments but I have no idea how to thread her and I don't see a bobbin as I know one----any ideas on her? I am eager to hear what you know.
