Yesterday I was cruising my local thrifts and I came across this beauty. Branded as a Good Housekeeper machine. These photos are taken before and during cleaning so... some areas are icky looking. lol
She's kind of a pistachio green color. There's a bit of wear and tear on her but I figure she probably earned her dings/nicks/scratches because she's an older gal.
For the low price of $7.00 It was quite literally a steal. So far aside from the build up of dust and a bit of old oil there is nothing major to be fixed. She came with a plywood case, part of the bottom was missing. That allows for easy access of the bobbin area. So i'm not sure if it was on purpose or not.
Her motor is a 1.5 amp motor, *nods* that's right this gal has power!
She's a basic zigzag machine. I haven't really tested all of her zigging and zagging capabilities yet. Wrong foot. LOL and all i have are high shank Kenmore feet and a couple slant shank Singer's. She does zig and zag when I tried 'darning' the old way, no foot and no feed dogs.
When you open the light area, you can see a clear red plastic insert that 'turns on' when the light is on.
I found this most amusing to me. As you can see from the imgur album her electrical cords are twisty.
As always for more photos here's the IMGUR Album link.: http://imgur.com/a/9k0jL
