    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!

    Thanks all!

    I'm trying to figure out how old it is. Can't find anything on there to tell me. UGH! Tried a Google search, but came up with nothing.
    I really want to use it or at least try it out, but cannot. At least not without the piece that holds the bobbin in place.

    It looks a lot like one I got a flea mkt for $25.00. The tension needs adjusting, but it seems to be in great shape. I got the book and a bunch of attachments along with the machine. Just need to fiddle with the tension. Good for you, Terri!

    Niiiiice! Should be a real workhorse when you have all the parts. I love the old machines. A friend has different color threads in her machines so she gets to use them. :lol:
