    Nope, both your eyes are OK, mine are shot. You're right it's a Mdl 15. Look just above the needle bar and there's a spot from the wall behind the machine that looks like the tension on a 127 or a 66. I need a bigger monitor cos that light colored spot looked like a tensioner and the real tensioner blended in with the other part of the wall.

    That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

    I still like the cabinet.

    Joe if you hold down control and hit + as many times as you like you can make your pictures bigger - to shrink the screen back hold down control and then hit - (minus) as many times as you hit the +

    She's HOME!! She needs some shining up, a new belt, and the cabinet needs a good oiling.

    If I did this right, she was made in 1914

    Medallion on the back. It appears to be silver, but needs polishing.

    Does anyone know where I can get decorative wooden cut outs like on the door. The wood is so dry they have broken and there are several pieces missing. It's got more feet than I know what to do with!! I'll have to take pictures of them later

    Inside of the decorative door is a wooden box that locks, a shelf and another little box that set in it.

    All the hardware seems to be intact and moving freely, just needs a belt.
