    They offered 10.00 for it. Think its worth even that?

    your not >>sure<< why. there did the research but have quite a yrs span on what yr it is, but there sure it was made before we had 110 AC m guess you know when elec power was first used in the uSA it was DC,, even more they are afraid to plug that in because it still has a DC motor, crap every sewing machine has a DC motor on it ??
    look at your own motors they'll will say DC or ac / DC which tells us they will run on eiether.. early home generators where DC

    each and every one of us are Home schooled
    This is way to much home schooling on sewing machines Buzzing in her Brain
