Here is my newest addition to the vintage group...But I have a question about her very dark needle plate and bobbin cover, I'm thinking the chrome is ALL gone and this is bare steel, not shiny at all like her lil sis the 99 I got a couple of weeks ago. Any suggestions, I have cleaned with metal, and chrome cleaner, and paint remover as my husband thought they had been painted over....made no difference at all. If I want shiney, should I just by new ones??? Thanks for looking and your input. Brenda Brighteyes sews like a dream.
