    Best be sure to have a manual. I got one for $5 once but never could figure it out. I think it was all gooie inside and I didn't yet know how to ungooie a sewing machine.

    I can't afford it and am not into the truly antique machines, but this is a gorgeous piece!!
    Pretty machine! I bookmarked this auction to watch.

    We'll take William so he can drive, haul the Uhaul trailer with all of our goodies, and manhandle the machines, and remind us to stop and eat!

    :lol:
    Ok! Now that you are talking about stopping for food, I'm in!
    Got to hit some "dives" with yummy good food. One of my favorite shows is "drive-in, diners, and dives". We will need to stop at some of those places along this expedition.
    OK, y'all!! Now I am definately in to this expedition. I'll be saving up my pennies so I can afford to drive up to Charlee's to meet. WooHoo!! If this becomes reality, what a blast this would be...truly!!
    I will start saving mine too. Pick me up on your way North!! I would love a road trip!

    Can't you just picture this. A caravan full of quilter, sewing machine ladies pull up to a yard sale.
    The ladies are laughing and cheering and having a great time.
    So the yard sale has a featherweight and a 66 redeye for $10 each.
    HHHHMMMM see who is laughing and cheering when this is over.....
    I'll tell you what I'll have the yard sale and you all show up and fight over who gets to buy what...

    Monica, this is interesting. So far

    Playswithcolor has 031503 Free #5 bought at end of WW1 1918 or 1919?

    Monica's Free 0240726 - is it a Free # 5?

    Nana's Free 827313 - is it a Free #5?

    My friend Deb's Free #5 - C76088

    My Free #5 - C83642

    Do you all have the Free #5? Does anyone else have one with pending patent dates written on the cabinet top?

    Does anyone have a Free with patent dates on the slide plate? If so, what are the dates?

    Nancy

    Please make sure I have the correct serial numbers. I want to try and figure out why two of the serial number start with 'C'? Something to do with patent's still pending on those machines or a different factory?
    My cabinet just says patent applied for, BUT..
    I just found patent dates on my slide plate! It says:
    PATENTED
    FEB 11-02 SEP 15-09
    " " " DEC 21-09
    OCT 17-05 JAN 4-10
    JULY 30-07 MAY 20-13
    OTHER PATENTS
    PENDING
    NOTICE
    TO
    JOBBERS & DEALERS
    THIS MACHINE IS SOLD
    SUBJECT TO CONDITIONS
    AND RESTRICTIONS AS
    TO PRICE AT WHICH,
    AND PERSONS BY
    WHOM IT MAY BE
    RESOLD, ASCERTAIN-
    ABLE FROM THE
    MANUFACTURER
    UPON APPLICATION

    The slide plate in the front has info concerning the 'number of cotton' 'size of needle' and 'number of silk'

    So, it looks like mine is no older than May 20, 1913..that is 21 years older than my Dad.
