    Looks like departed sewing machine viewing. Gladiolas would be nice.

    Sounds like the time I figured out that pantyhose and carpeted stairs were a bad combination. I had no idea I knew how to tuck and roll, but I did, and bounced off the opposite wall at the end of the stair well. Glad to hear you're OK though.

    Hm,... sewage accident? I'm not sure what else could make a machine look like this. (Note, we're in a prairie location. We don't have a moisture problem) Notice that it's been waiting for a new home since Nov...?

    It's a 401A and there is a 201K manual with it.

    I've seen those 401s look pristine on the outside and be so gummed up on the inside it isn't funny - I got a Singer 500 in much worse shape - nothing moved either - it is now my parts machine - it has saved the life of many machines. I'm so glad I bought it and my pocket book is very glad I parted it out.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    For a hundred beans though... I'd be pretty hesitant to make it a parts machine. Geez, I had a hard time selling a pristine inside and out 403 with cabinet for less than that. I wonder how long since it's been used if t looks like that.
