    Nancy, unfortunately Uncle Bob has also passed and I don't believe that the ranch repairs their own tack any longer. Gayle, my aunt, is interested but doesn't have the back tolerance for lifting a lot of tack and Kenny, her current husband, thinks it's wate of his time. Not sure what happened to the sewing machine that Bob used.

    HM I like the lamp idea... Paint it camo so nobody knows it's there

    I picked up three more project machines this weekend. A Kenmore Stylist 86, a Singer Model 15 that I had thought was a clone at first, and a Singer 99-13 in a bentwood case. Name:  CL Ken2.jpg

    Is that 15 stamped with Singer markings underside? I have some machines with no upper markings - I should look below.
