just for fun i checked the goodwill store site, and lo, and behold, there was a featherweight with case and accessories. i put a cap of $175, and got it for $171, which works for me. i don't know what year it is, but there are no measurement lines on the plate. don't know if it runs or not, but there are so many parts available it's not a problem! i can't tell you how excited i am!!!!! YAY!!
