Friends of our had this machine. He says there's a part missing but has it somewhere in his house. They asked me if I wanted it....um...dumb question! lol
So, sight unseen, I said yes. I was hoping it to be a treddle, but no luck. But, I like it,,,it's nice! The cabinet needs some polishing, has a ton of scratches on it, but that's ok by me!

Just giving it a quick looksie, I'm thinking the holder thingy that holds the bobbin in (side bobbin) is what is missing. Like my technical term?
I am, the next time I go into Hawaii, going to bring it with me and drop it at the sewing shop to get a good cleaning and have the guy fix it for me. It's a really pretty machine and the cabinet is awesome!
