    Windsor B, cast iron base, Electrified - Free

    Ok, this is one for the books...

    My EX shot me a text yesterday with a blurry picture of an "old iron sewing machine". It looked to have a motor, but the shot was bad enough to not be sure. She asked If I would be interested in it. Of course I said yes... (sigh... I know) How Much? She replied "nothing. it is a thank you for helping fix things from time to time". Too cool.

    So, now I have more Trade-bait for older machines and parts....

    This required a quick teardown and repair.... but it works and is not damaged, just worn.

    Sorry, It is a Windsor Model B, made by the National Sewing Machine Company. It has one serial number on the slide and a different one on the bed under the slide... working on the dating of the unit now.

    LOL Remember, if you have a machine or parts of machines that are older than 1885 to trade with me, it could be yours!!!!

    That's a beauty!! I would love to add a footed base machine to my herd some day. Just because.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
