    Red face 201-2 1941 Rebirthing

    Whew!

    Actually 1941...sorry.

    I am finally done with this 71 year old machine. It has been totally redone since the original shape was terrible. My regret is that I did not take a picture of it before restoration. The machine was sanded to the bone, primed, repainted, decals applied, lacquered and then a top coat of shellac was applied, motor completely rewired, and timing set.

    Serial AF887162

    P.S. This is hybrid approach which Glenn and I have been discussing...

    I will document more completely my 306 that I'm about to begin on.

    The 201-2 is now purring and sewing perfectly. Very tight stitches. Not bad for an old gal .
    Here are some pictures.

    That is a thing of beauty. You did good work on it. Wish I had one of those.
