    Just picked up a beautiful Automatic Noiseless Willcox & Gibbs in #6 Drop Case treadle cabinet (also in beautiful condition!).

    I'm so thrilled! I can't wait until I have a few moments to get to know it and sew something on it! After I oil it properly - the previous owner use WD40 to un-stick it.

    Now what is this thing I noticed that you all name your pretty vintage ladies?

    It came with a manual and a bunch of attachments in the boxes. And the couple that we bought it from gave me a copy of a cinnamon bread twist too! Such a really nice couple too - fun to chat with.

    She's listed as 1872 on her plate.

    I can see that I'll need to polish up her chrome too. I'm just tickled that her decals are in such great condition.
