I realized I do not really want to repair and refurbish vintage machines, I would much rather be sewing. This could also be due to the fact that some of the machines I have invested time and money in have turned out to be more trouble than they were worth. I have rehomed a Singer 301A, a Singer 99, a Singer Spartan and a Singer 15-19, all of which needed work, within the last couple of weeks.
I do have a Singer 401A that I am keeping for a friend and when she gave me that machine, she made me swear I would never sell it or give it away. I will occassionally use and oil Ms. Elsie, as she is known, until my friend has room for her again.
I hope you all have fun with all the vintage machinery out there.
