    The cut out and hinge spacing is different for the 99 and the 301. The two machine won't be able to share the same cabinet.

    The person who painted that cute 66 does not want it to be used. It is obvious by her description. Why would you sell something you think is so cool looking? Obviously she wants someone to appreciate her work and not use the machine - just display it? A very cute repaint, I agree.

    "Why would you sell something you think is so cool looking?" Because the seller knows there will be another one to sell similar to this one once this one is sold. May not be exactly the same, but close. The seller could possibly sell lots if they lower the price and market it for young girls learning to sew. Something with a line of "American Girl" dolls theme, pillowcases and easy dress patterns.

    Some just seek the trophy, while others seek to breathe in a life...either way it's okay...whatever makes one happy.

The last Patent date on her is 1873. There is a concealed drawer in her top which had several glass feet and tools inside. On the back is a bar that controls the pressure to the pressure foot. Is not operated by a spring. The pressure foot lifter is completely outside the machine too. I will really check her out tomorrow, but after being in the car for over 4 hours to get her home, I am pooped out.
    My other WW8 serial number is 385288. How do these numbers compare to anyone else that has the WW8.

    I took a peek at the other listings on the tippecanoe CL, where the cute, white, repainted sewing machine is posted.
    This cabinet is gorgeous: http://tippecanoe.craigslist.org/atq/2824637251.html
    Great deal at $45. The repainted, cute, white sewing machine would look stunning in this cabinet, just have to redo the top for the machine head to be able to sit in the cabinet. Machine head $450, cabinet $45...if money were no object...

    I agree, that is so pretty. I would just want to sit and look at it-for a while anyway(then I would have to see if it worked!)

    Heehee, I'm sorry. So, do you have that Davis in cabinet and working? IF not, make that top of your list.
