    Hi Ms. Boats.
    That is a great machine. Never have seen one in the midwest, yet. I'll keep an eye out. It is sooo pretty.

    This rusty Willard makes my (Red Eye) still stuck in the needle bar area look like it was new. I have been diligent about TriFlow and hair dryer, but she still won't move more than a tiny wiggle. Good luck with getting this machine moving, as advised, start with the oil/Liquid Wrench now.

    Actually even though she is rusty all her parts move quite well. She has been oiled inside and out. And I will take it slow using a lot of cotton pads and oil only. Sarge, AKA Joe, will be watching.

    I can empathize with you about your Redeye. The refurbished 27 with the crinkle finish that I posted about a couple of weeks ago is in the same condition. It is the only sewing machine head that has stubbornly refused to cooperate. I will eventually wind up learning how to dismantle the whole thing internally. Next time I visit my OSMG I am going to ask him how it comes apart inside when one can't access it. I have put it aside to alleviate my frustration. Or re-purpose it as a door stop.

    I agree. I like the deco decals very much. Hmmm, parlor cabinet, may have to consider looking for one.

    I have one, too, a little rougher than this one but still like the look. Love those pansies! also like the oddballs! Will have to do some research on New Millard now. Wish I could get a look at one with "seahorse" things on it...glad to learn that she can take a 27 shuttle and bobbin; she came without anything. I think I paid a couple of dollars for her at a yard sale many years ago, just because I loved the pansies.

    Nice decals on both of these machines! I've never seen/heard of New Millard before but I am loving the decals they used. Those "seahorses" look kind of like Chinese dragons to me. VERY pretty.

    I am looking forward to seeing the first one all cleaned up. I bet it's going to be gorgeous!
