Welcome to the Quilting Board!
WTH Happened to that machine and cabinet??? WHAAAAAT??? The machine is GOLD! And the cabinet (what is left of it) ... It's GREEN!!! Is that MOSS??? WTH???
Maybe it was a prop for a haunted house
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts. Winston Churchill
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...
