Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
I was given this Singer 127 as a boat anchor and I decided to practice cleaning and restoring on it. There were some kind of mud nesting bugs that had half flilled the face insides and all across the arm of the machine. It was rusted solid on the inside.
Well I have it as good as I can get it. She is still missing a front slide bobbin plate, shuttle and bobbin and in the cleaning her bobbin winder broke. She is going into storage until I decide what to do with her, but she is clean and turns easily now. Maybe she just needs a new home, too.
Off topic I'm making my dough for the beignets. The dough needs to chill for at least 4 hours. Plan to snack on some after dinner tonight!
Wow! The before and after is incredible. Don't stop now. Parts can be had.
