    I'm going online now to see if I can find out what it is worth. I will need to replace the cord, its been chewed up by a critter and I'm not going to plug it up. Sparks would fly all over the place. When turning the wheel, it feels as smooth as butter. I'm sure it will run great when I get it fixed.

    Have fun with your new "baby". I'd like to find cool stuff like that at a garage sale.

    The sparks would only fly if it was plugged in and you thought you could re-wire your pooch. Use some black electrical tape to take care of that temporarily until you can get new wiring.

    I have a WHITE machine. It is just like this one and in the same color. They were made in Japan (I think by Singer) around 1945. YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT when you get the wiring fixed! It is a real workhorse. Also, did you notice on the front base that there is a knob so that you can raise and lower the feed dogs? It has 3 settings. This is really a pretty heavy duty sewing project machine. ENJOY IT!

    Now that is a different color machine! I just found one that is a metalic gold like a gold car paint but it is the actual color of the machine as I looked it up online. Have fun fixing it up and sewing on it.
