    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Or that swimming pool after a decade long soak. Green and gold? What sadistic life did this poor machine have to endure?

    Steve,

    I realize the base is from a Climax sewing machine but I'm wondering if it might have been some type of an industrial machine made by Climax as that base looks very similar to the Singer 29-4 base: https://www.google.com/search?q=sing...w=1066&bih=516

    I have a 29-4 and I agree. The first ting I thought when i saw that is "what machine used a stepped deck like that..."

    I'm sure the base was modified- there's only a horizontal center support on the L side platform, and an odd vertical center support added. It does look a bit like the old telephone "gossip benches".

    The decals are in lovely shape. 99 in a cabinet.
    At that price though, it's going to take some time to go, good thing they have a storage container...

    If temperature is going from cool to hot, etc it isn't going to last long in the storage container.
