    You could try lemon juice for removing rust.

    I see them quite often on CL.
    VERY unusual decoration on this one!! I have not seen one like this before.
    I think if I lived a little closer and if we hadn't just had several major snowstorms this month I would probably go get it.

    Today I got my socks blessed off! One of the machines I was wanting to collect was the Singer 201. I answered a CL ad for a vintage machine, owner didn't know what model... When I met her at the storage unit to look, it was a 201!! And she took $60 for it! The cabinet is a very nice treadle cabinet, obviously not the original one for the machine, as it is electric. The owner said it was her grandmothers and had been converted to electric from a treadle. This isn't true, tho. The machine has a potted motor, smooth handwheel, and the big cord plug built in on the side. It was built electric. I assume the owner knew nothing about the machine and was confused. Lucky for me she just wanted to get rid of it! She said her grandmother was "on it all the time" and loved to sew, but she died a few years back. I asked what the grandma's name had been, and was told, "Flora". I was the one who thought people who named their machines were silly, but I'm finding myself wanting to call this machine "Flora"!

    I have the same cabinet as CabbagePatchKid...its the Singer DR04. The cabinet in the Boston CL ad, above, is the DR05... same cabinet but with fancy wood trims added on it. I think I'd rather have the plain one as those wooden pieces get bumped off too easliy. My 1908 model 66 Lotus resides in that fine cabinet. You don't want to know what I paid...

    Is just the front plate missing? I may have both a bobbin winder and the plate.
    Tommy you are an Angel. Yes it is just the front plate that is missing. How much do you want for both pieces? Kathie

    Congrat! Nice find! You will just love your 201. I do believe the machines find us and that is why we call them by their special names. Enjoy your Flora!

    I tried that. It removes some but not all of the rust.
