    The stop action is tighter than a drum, as is the lever to drop the feed dogs. They both have had a drink of oil, and I'll try again later. The slide plate "spring" is broken and will have to be replaced. A metal shop can do that if I can't find one. She's never going to be gorgeous like she was when new, but I don't really care at this point...I think she's wonderful!! I think I'm going to name her "Liesl" a German form of "Elizabeth".

    William figures that someone opened the lid and just let it fall at some time or another...it's broken loose from the rest of the cabinet and will need to gluing to fix. Skip has suggested that I pretty much leave the body of the cabinet alone and just restore the top and sides.
    Liesl is a beautiful name! Sometimes the not so pretty machines work the best. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the info.!

    I let google be my friend:> I had never even heard of this manufacturer before. Where on earth did you find this treasure? You need to take me shopping some day. I don't know where any good hideyholes are.

    Charlee, only two pictures come up - I want to see the machine too. Happy Anniversary!

    Charlee, Happy anniversary to you and your husband. What a wonderful gift he gave you for your ann. I love the flowers on your machine, and the cabinet will clean up great!

    Nancy, I'm so glad that you got that red/pink machine. The color would make me smile just looking at it. All of my vintage machines are black.

    Joba, congrats on the 99. I have 2, a 1924 99 with the big clunk metal foot petal, and a 1928 99-13 with the knee bar. I hope you can get one for your machine. If you need bobbins for it, don't get the Singer ones at Walmart or Joann's for it. They don't work!
