I received a call yesterday from my OJCG. He said he had another "very nice" sewing machine and he wanted $80.00 for it. He Emailed me some pictures and I told him that what he wanted was waaay too much. After a lot of haggling and standing firm on my offer of $35.00 he sold it to me. I met him to pick it up and he offered me a Singer puzzle box for $10.00. I took that also as it was complete, even had the little screw drivers in it.
The case show very little wear, hooray! This sewing machine has been used in the past as it is very linty. The only scratches on the bed and pillar is likely from the foot controller and they are very light. The wiring is perfect, another hooray. So I oiled her up and greased the motor, plugged her in, turned on the light switch (even the light works) and she runs like a dream. But, what did I expect? Of course she runs, she is a Japanese clone. The motor and the bobbin case and race tell me that this machine was made by Morse. The serial number is TA-133996. I think I "did good" on this one!
