    Joe, you have a beauty there. Nice work converting it. Loved the essay and pictures explanation of what you did. I'm not very handy myself so that was very interesting and thorough. Thanks. I hope you spend many happy hours together.

    Nice job! I just resurrected my great grandmother's 99 from the closet where I had it stashed. I sewed on it all through college and until I was about 30. That was 20 years ago. It was a great machine, and the old girl really needs her original wiring replaced, a good cleaning and probably some adjustment. I have the original case, but it's seen better days, so that needs some attention too. Hmmm, that sounds like me.

    We are moving in a week, and taking care of my old friend is going to be my first project after the sewing room is set up. My father recalls his grandmother sewing a quilt top I currently own on that machine and he also sewed on it, so it's got some pretty nice family memories.

    Thanks so much for the great photos!!

    What a lovely machine! But I have to say, Joe, when I read your title I was expecting some kind of wild paint job with bells & whistles. ;o)
    aka Chicken McLittle

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    Nice job Joe.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer

    I gotta check my original text, I was sure I said where I got that case. The bent wood case came from my local dealer. He had three, two 3/4 sized and one full sized cases. I've bought one of each so far.

    Laura,
    If the wiring is the original, with the original connectors, it's not that hard to replace it. There are several places on line that sell replacement wiring harnesses for these machines. Sew-Classic is first on my list when looking for them.
    My 99K had nothing left so I started from scratch.

    I have a number of Japanese made machines in the old cloth covered wooden cases. Many, most of the cases look pretty bad. I've glued three or four of them back together and am in the process of completely rebuilding and recovering two of them. At $20.oo + each I can buy a lot of clue, sand paper, and cloth and redo them.

    Joe
