Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Havplenty, that's a beautiful 99! I paid $40 for mine a few years ago. It sews like a charm.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now am found, was blind, but now I see. [John Newton (1725-1807)]
Those 99s, Spartans and 185s are all pretty nice little machines. Put a finger guard on and let a kid learn to sew.
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first

Time for you all to see what my bro in law found in a charity shop and waltzed round here for me today. It came in its own box (don't know if it is the original) and with the manual, so I can look at lots of interesting pictures of attachments that weren't with it. We have taken off the spool holder, which was already broken, but if someone has any tips for gluing a small piece of cast iron back together I would be very grateful to hear from you.
Muv, it's GORGEOUS!!
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
