    I have one of these Whites in my garage. It looks like yours. The serial number is X538117. I would be interested to hear more information on them.

    What a bargain! I like that knee bar, looks easy to use.

    I have a White machine made in 1949. It sews wonderfully and is so powerful. It can sew through many layers of fabric including leather. Look on you tube, put in threading a White machine and it will show you how to thread them. I love mine. Yours looks like it might be older than mine, but it is basically the same. The only difference I can see is that yours has a shiny light where mine is black like the machine. Mine is black crinkle finish and I bought a brown crinkle finish from EBay. I paid $25 for the black one at an estate sale and $40 for the one off EBay. I think I got a bargain and I know you got a Big bargain! If you call Husqvarna and give them the serial # they will tell you how old it is. Husqvarna took over White.

    I forgot to mention the wheel turns away from you. You will love the knee press once you get used to it.

    Any more updates? I was just given a machine similar to yours and was wondering about your progress.

    What's the best way to clean the crinkles? Mine is REALLY dirty, greasy and grimy. I know I can clean and oil the insides, I can polish the metal parts, but how do I clean the crinkles and grooves? I was thinking mild dish soap and a toothbrush...
