    Goodwill Rescue

    I rescued a brown crinkle Domestic rotary by White Manufacturing. She needs a good cleaning and oiling. There is a possible fray in the electical cord covered by electrical tape. The cabinet needs refinishing but I love the style of it. Serial #151-15384. I have not been able to find anything about her online yet. If anyone knows where to look let me know.
    I did have to leave 2 other machines and an empty cabinet at the Goodwill in Apache Junction, Az. A portable Singer and a Kenmore in a cabinet. All priced around $30 - $35.

    I do have the face plate missing in this picture. There is a box of extra feet and bobbins and the manual. I am missing the foot pedal but it has the knee contol.

    I have the same machine, a brown crinkle, badged White Rotary 35X, age 1936. I paid $15.00 at our local Goodwill. It is in the exact same cabinet as yours and I love the cabinet too. Haven't refinished it yet but would make a nice bedside table. Then I could sew in my bedroom. I sew in almost every other room in the house so why not.

    Good rescue! Even her finish looks good. I'm working on an old Singer treadle cabinet now that I think I'll put in my bedroom. Hubby keeps saying we need a bigger house since there are 2 of us and ours is only 2200 sq. ft. I think he's dropping subtle hints that fall on deaf ears! LOL

    Your machine was made in 1940. See info here http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/...62576881ZWxouE

    Yes, do check the wiring. It is often bad if it has not previously been replaced. Nice machine. Also check the drive wheel on the motor. Often there is a flat spot from the motor resting against the drive mechanism. Sort of thumps when you sew with it.

    Thank you. I did check out the drive wheel like you suggested and there is a grove on the motor pulley where it has been resting on the disc wheel. Now I need to find somewhere to take it for repairs.
