    looks like a big project. But she looks like she'll clean up nice. now you need a Micky to go with her and have all sorts of little mice!!!
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Well, I don't know about a lot of little mice, but it wouldn't bother me if they got together and made some little baby machines I could sell.

    As of now, I've gotten the machine together and test sewed with it, turning the machine by hand. Works smooth and easy.
    I've checked and verified the motor is good internally. Just needs re-wired.
    And I've checked and found the foot controller is also good. The wires were bad. Not surprising considering their age.

    I'm going to rewire it all but I haven't decided just how to make the connectors yet.
    Either I'll put in a wire block like the Japanese machines have, that's the easiest way, or I'll wire in a 3 way connector set like it most likely was originally.

    Thinking on it.
