    great work Joe. Thanks for sharing it with us. Makes us appreciate the DEAD naked machines we do come across. There is hope and life for them!

    Jacquie,

    Yep there is. Plus it's a challenge and a learning thing for me. I learn more by doing than by studying.

    Some wiring has been replaced and some is original. It was probably my dad who did the repairs. I think I'll just go ahead and put all new wiring on it. I am not worried about doing it; I have rewired many an electric appliance. The fun part will be cleaning it, fixing the case and using it again. I just wish there was some way to release all the family memories and history she has stored inside!

    Great job and thanks for sharing this info in such a clear manner.

    That is a great looking machine and well worth the dressing up.

    Great post- though I was expecting some discussion of leg garters and lace. Seems you have quite a rescue addiction going! Your tutorials are fantastic, and the pics really help me understand the process. Thank you very much.

    Very nice job! Love seeing the whole process in pictures.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Thanks for showing us what you did to the machine, now if I run into a lonely little 99, I won't be afraid to grab it.

    Joe is good with the cute responses--perhaps you saw his answer to my jumping up and down fit when a friend of mine GAVE me a Singer Rocketeer a month or so ago......hahahahah. And BTW, I almost have it running, even though not fixed. Too complicated for the likes of me. Just sewing is enough for me.
    Make every day count for something!
