    I like it but the machine looks a little rough for wear on the bed. But the cabinet is really beautiful!

    The silver one is pushed down as it should be for winding the bobbin, the black one is pushed up as it should be (not touching the belt) for sewing. Ruth

    Here are a couple of interesting sites.
    I ordered the DVD about Featherweights he has produced and it is really a good source of info, close ups of all the parts and easy to follow instructions for doing your own maintenance.

    It has two plugs and I don't know what they are both for so will have to post pics tomorrow, I would like to convert it back but this is what Grandma wanted and since I don't have the base and don't really remember it I will probably keep it as it is for now.

    It is so beautiful. You know when my Grandmothers passed away I never thought of finding out if they had sewing machines. I am glad you have your Grandmother's. What a beautiful item to pass down in your family.
