    Old sewing machine - Revere Deluxe Precision Sewing Machine - FREE!!

    This morning I stopped in a Goodwill store to browse but didn't find anything exciting. As I was pulling out of the parking lot, I saw a TV and sewing machine case sitting on the ground outside next to a dumpster. I went back inside to inquire about why it was there, and if it were being thrown away. They said yes, and it was free for the taking if I wanted it. I had no idea what kind it was or what kind of shape it was in, but I figured that the price was surely right! I put it in the car and was out of there!

    When I got home and opened it up I found the prettiest turquoise blue sewing machine. It is a Revere Deluxe Precision Sewing Machine, Model CB.

    Does anyone have one like it? How do you like it? Any idea where I can find a manual? Do you have any hints about using it?

    The cords look to be in good shape, and the wheel turns. I haven't plugged it in yet.

    Thanks for any info you can give me about my new machine!

    Probably a 15 clone. Can you put up a picture? Thanks.

    I don't know anything about that one, but I hope it works, or you can get it working.

    Well, I am not able to load my picture, but here is a link to one that looks a lot like my new baby:

    Here is another one that looks very much like mine, but mine doesn't say " Home mark." Mine has the word "Revere" in that place. This one is more like the color of mine.

    Finally figured it out -

    Here is the picture of the lovely one that I found ready to be put into the dumpster yesterday.

    Isn't she a beauty? I hope that I can get her to start purring. Haven't had a chance to try it yet.

    She is VERY heavy!

    What a beauty. They probably thought it was just too old and not a name brand like singer. Good Luck with it. Be sure to let us know if it works.

    Very nice find, and the price is right. I bet she will purr along well when you plug her in. Congrats on your new baby.
