I got this for $20, love the colour, and its made in Canada. It says its a 185J 1954, JD861550. The belt is dried so I took it off to replace it. The petal is rusted to crud. Any suggestions? Oh and some smuck engraved an annoying number on the bed of the machine - people are so weird. You can't see it in the pic - but it is there. Regardless, it will suit me fine. The case is in wonderful condition too. When I opened the machine up to oil, I don't think anyone used it - it was so clean of fuzz.
My favorite part is there is a mini button beside the bobbin to 'pop' it up to take it out - never saw anything like it - cute. Don't know anything about this type of machine, will have to read up on it and find a manual.
