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!
The company name stamp.
