    Thrift store find

    White sewing machine model 130, serial #8332. Not for sure of the year made. It's dirty, the case is even worse. But a bit of elbow grease and bleach will clean the case up. The machine has some chips and it was missing the bobbin case but think one I already had in my collection will fit. The bottom side needs cleaning and oiling. So here are the photos.
    BTW it cost me $7.99 and it works. However is is rather loud. Maybe a good oiling will solve that.

    Good for you! Hopefully a little oil will take care of the loud voice...
