    Yes, it's for needle resharpening. To see pictures go back to post 38703 on this thread.

    I named this one "Happy Go Lucky" - this one turns real nice.

    Then I looked at a Singer 15 I won on GW auction - I was hoping for a good case, sigh. Here is the machine. It is the polar opposite from those wonderful Pfaff machines Charlee and Nancy are showing off. I think someone was rather ambitious about cleaning it up or something. Maybe BIL will paint it or something... I need to clean it up and see if it sews or if it is all there.

    Let's see if a pic of the front comes through - ugly knows no bounds - but there isn't any rust.

    Miriam,

    Great canvas to start with. Appears to be a 15-30. Is the BC finger a 11:00 0r a 1:00?
