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...
