    Oops... double entendre or what? Mint condition AND mint color!

    Isn't it wonderful that so many people are lovingly preserving these machines for future generations? Don't forget to use them! Nothing keeps them running and moving as well as actually using them.

    This is probably the *coolest* sewing machine I've ever seen! It's not mine; it belongs to my aunt, who bought it on eBay and had it shipped to me, so I could take it to my osmg. ThingOne will be pony-expressing back to her when he goes back home this week. In the meantime, I get to pet it, and lust after it, and...

    It's a Morse Fotomatic IV/4400. (I've seen it called either.) It looks like a late 50's Buick dashboard to me, with all the chrome and levers and whatnot. This one is fantastically clean, quiet, just purrs right along, and it came with a box of a dozen or so feet, some bobbins, etc.

    The case is a little ratty, but the non-original plastic one it came in was absolutely beat. My osmg had this one knocking around in his parts pile, so he swapped them out. It's not pretty, but it's intact, and an original Morse case. Aunt Suzi will be thrilled.

    Now I want one! :-P

    Sorry I put the wrong model number on the "201". It is actually a 15-91. Sorry about that.

It is in a nice cabinet and the cabinet was full of trim, zippers, attachments and thread. Works fine. But we currently have 5 treadles, including a 1861 Wilcox and Gibbs Treadle, 2 301s, 7 Featherweights, 2 201's, 2 Singer Salesmen (miniature cast iron hand cranks 1880s) machines, a few 99's, a couple of 66s, 2 128's, a few model 15's (including one with a coffin lid) a Dressmaker, Janome, 1970 Singer, Kenmore, and a Brothers. We are considering moving out and letting the machines take over. LOL.

    Wow Beth, the Elgin is awesome with those green decals on black! That's the first time I have seen one... It's cabinet is pretty amazing, too.

    MrsBoats, I LOVE Morse machines, and all the others that resemble those 50's dashboards! That's my favorite look.
