    I can remember making marbles do that when I was a kid - you heat them hot then put them on ice...

    I suppose the foot plate is the soap dispenser
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Thanks for posting that!! No, I'm not going to buy it, I acquired a 99k this weekend and the motor was unbadged, (the bracket was) and I wondered if it was original. Since the one you posted has original dirt on it, and the same set up, I'll guess that the one I have is probably original too.

    Also, just as an FYI - I sent a message to the curator of the SFmuseum just to be sure it was legitimately acquired.
    Update: this CANNOT be the machine discussed in the museum display. The Willcox & Gibbs serial number A 685221 dates it for after 1917... The wheels are fine (could have been replaced, but still) date is wrong.

    beautiful machine and cabinet though, and the price was right.

    "Original dirt" - I like that comment!
