    Wheeler Wilson 8 Rufflers

    Hey folks,

    I made a stop at Cathy's this weekend and she had just found these beauties.

    I am working out a deal for one, but whatever the deal works out to be, one component is that "I" get to clean them both. hehe

    So, here they are. Once "as is" and one in process of cleaning.

    the underside is pretty cool as well, NOTE the brass "insert" for the WW8 Glass presser foot holder!

    my WW8 is not up and running right now si I do not know, but it moves very smooth and easy. the adjuster adjusts just fine.

    Once again I sit in awe of the craftsmanship of our forebearers

    All i did was supply Brasso, 0000 steel wool, elbow grease

    Those are very interesting pieces of equipment. A bit older than those I have. You did a nice job in cleaning them up.
