    Those are the best kind of machines FREE :thumbup:

    Google the machine name and you should be able to find manuals on the net :wink:

    Great for you. I got one free from CL but it didn't work. Getting closer though with help from the vintage machine shop. Glad someone saves these items that can be used by someone. If not you pass on a working machine.

    Amazing find! I wonder why someone would throw away a working machine instead of passing it along to someone who could use it. That's what I would do anyway. :thumbup:

    Nothing like dumpster diving with this economy!! You've got a great neighbor to think of you when he rescued it! Lucky you!! Enjoy!
