    2 spools? I have a 1917 Western Electric portable in a bentwood case, but it has a round bobbin. Western Electric machines were made by National, and only for 2 years 1917 and 1918. Then Graybar took the machines from National.
    Yes the National Two Spools was badged for Western Electric.

    If it has a "can" in the bobbin area that holds a spool then it is a Two Spools machine.

    I have seen them sell as high as $650 on ebay, last year.

    Keep it!!!! It's a great machine for piecing.
    I don't own it yet, now knowing what it can be worth, I can't afford it. lol

    I picked up my first National Two Spools, just the machine, for $30 last year. This spring, I picked up the second one in parlor cabinet with the cute treadle feet for $150.

    Just keep looking!!!

    That will be a very nice machine once it's cleaned. Great deal for the machine in a straight-leg cabinet.

    Enjoy!!

    My "White" boat anchor. I was given this machine (head only) and told it was just about good enough to be a boat anchor. I've been doing some research on it and found out it is a 1904 White Family Rotary machine, a very early one before they started using the large "T-shirt" plate. The cabinet was thrown away,(before I knew about it) except this one piece of wood that is a "hand hole cover". I decided to just clean her up and leave her decals trashed, since she is a pretty rare old dame. More pictures when she is finished. Now she needs a cabinet.

    Went for a look at the Singer 9W but it just didn't ring my bell so I didn't get it. It's all there and most of the decals are ok except for the one on the base, it had a few attachments, some bobbins and the bobbin case was there also. If anybody is interested, PM me and I can tell you where it's located. The cabinet will take quite alot of work.
