I really scored today. I almost didn't open the case because I thought is was a typewriter. But when I opened the case and saw the machine I quick turned the wheel and it moved freely so I slammed the cover shut and ran to the register before someone yelled "Thief". I got a Singer 301A for 19.99. When I got her home she is pristine and purrs when she's running. She's so light I think I'll be taking her to classes. Her name will be Hattie after my Grandma Michol. She didn't sew but I loved her so. I have many of her handkerchiefs with crochet edging.
