    I tried and it did not go through - I sent 2 - one last night and one this morning - you may have to empty out your PMs sent AND received before it will let you get any new PMs

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    First what is a PM??? I just bought a Singer 15-90 and it is in beautiful shape in a beautiful cabinet. I had to order a new light. She needs a good clean but she works great. I would welcome a place to ask questions about vintage.

    Got some "before" pictures of the WW9. I had her on the table, so my chairs show in the background. I have hurt my shoulder and the Dr says not to pick anything heavy up. (makes it difficult) The seller thinks that she was the personal sewing machine of his grandmother. Her name was Elizabeth, so that will be the name the WW9 will have. Should get more info hopefully from her seller after he talks with his family more. She was seized up last night and wouldn't turn a bit. I oiled the heck out of her and she is turning fine this morning. Love these old machines !!!

    Wow, poor machine. I am sure you will be able to clean and shine her up again. She looks almost as bad as the machine I brought home last Friday afternoon. I can't even tell what brand it is. The treadle cabinet is in bad shape - missing the top piece of wood (cover). It is a straight leg - legs made of wood instead of iron. Hope I can fix it up, but with the holidays comming it will probably get stuffed in the attic til after the first of the year. Oh, well.
