    Keep her cleaned and oiled

    Just picked this one up. Wasn't in the market for this model ... but couldn't pass it up for $35.

    Needs a slide plate over the bobbin area. The wood on the top will need to be worked a bit as they had it positioned in the sun. Drawer full of bobbins and a bobbin case in one of the drawers, as well as a belt - but no attachments. Will need needles as well. The drawer assembly on the left side is loose and will need to look at that - think it just needs to be fixed to the screw hole in the irons. Irons are in great shape. I haven't lifted the machine up, but everything moves freely from the top and I looked underneath with a flashlight and didn't see any glaring problems.

    SN FR2470727 ... best I can find so far is between 1914 and 1917

    Any recommendations to source the missing slide plate? I saw one on E-bay but wondering if there are other sources. I checked Sew-Classic but didn't find one.

    Oh ... I'm "guessing" that the bobbin winder operates by positioning so the groove fits into the treadle belt??

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Baby is a beauty.

    Baby is a beauty. I collect Featherweights also. I now have 7 and still looking for one dated 1943.

    and in this shot you can see an Elias Howe, a Singer, a Willcox & Gibbs, and a Wheeler and Wilson all are pre-1900
    (Now I just need a Grover and baker....sigh)

    Love the blue Kenmore and the yellow brother!! The last Kenmore you have listed I *think* is the model I learned to sew on at home.
