    Watcha Doin?

    Watcha doin?


    I mentioned refurbishing my Singer 9W-7 treadle cabinet in this thread:
    { Look it what I'm getting for free ...... update }


    Here is a couple pics after I was finished, but just before I took the light off. My wife and I agreed that although the light came on the machine, it just didnít look right.


    I finally came up with a rear belt guide to replace the broken one.



    A couple days ago I went out side to put it on the machine and was approached by Millie our 16 year old lady cat who asked me: "Watcha doin?"

    I had my camera in my hand and got this pic of her:


    So got busy and took the old broken guide off

    and put the replacement guide on

    I did some more polishing with Briwax polish and now this project is Ö finished.

    All I need for it is a set of attachments for the 9W-7 and it will be complete.

    Ahhhhh, it feels soooo good to be completely finished with the repairs on at least one project.

    Millie the project manager is downright proud of you. She has been with you from the beginning of the project. I am proud of you also!

    Millie has been with us since my wife rescued her in '98. She thinks we are her waitress, and butler. I guess we are too.

    Wow it looks great you did wonders on it and love the Milly making sure it was gone right!

    You said you removed the light on the front and I agree if just looks off on the front, did you place it on the back side of the machine? Or just going to leave it off?
