I have been lurking for a long while and have learned so much from all of you. I have been without a sewing machine for the past 3 years. I recently bought a 201-2 from Craig's list in near to perfect condition. This machine has been well loved and was taken care of. It is in a cabinet 42.
The cabinet was in a basement that was flooded. The bottom
2 or 3 inches has visible water damage and veneer is seperating from wood. I will at some point restore the desk but for now I just need a sewing machine so I can sew. I am trying to take out the draws to vacuum and wipe down the inside but can't easily get them out. I am afraid of damaging something. How do I get the draws out once I open them all the way?
I am waiting on an order from sew-classic so I can start rewiring it. All this is because of all you wonderful people that share their knowledge and expertise. I never would have attempted this project or bought the sewing machine. I am forever grateful in Boston.
