I went to a local Singer dealership at lunch today to pick up a tube of lubricant for the 1938 FW I finished refinishing....just put it back together to run a stitch test and it was running very sluggishly. Decided it needed some lubricant in the motor to see if that helps.
Finished shopping but the salesman took me back to the warehouse where he had several machines for sale. I was more interested in the case he had since my machine doesn't have a case.
This was a very pretty repro of the original...he was selling for $79.99, but on sale for $49.99. Rather than go for an original that was banged up and maybe musty I decided to get the new case.
This machine is for my grandson, should he someday decide to learn to sew. In the meantime, his Mom can use it. Really wanted a case for it and this one looked the best I've seen. Sturdy and just like the originals.
Will take a pic of the machine and case when the machine is all waxed and polished and ready for her grand reveal.
