    I love the old black Singers, too. There is a kind of elegance to them, even if they are well worn, with dull paint and fading decals. It's remarkable how a bit of cleaning, oiling and the occasional re-wiring can bring them right back to their past glory days. Maybe not as pretty, but just as serviceable.

    thanks for posting that link. I was gifted with a blackside or crinkle (not sure which) 66 yesterday, along with a treadle cabinet. I'm not sure the machine has ever been used...it is a beauty.
