    Check out the topic Vintage Sewing Machine Shop in the Main section. Lots of great info on there. Also look in Tutorials. There are some great tutes on cleaning her up!

    That 25,000 number means how many serial numbers for that model were authorized on THAT DATE only. There were many hundreds of thousands of the 66s made over the years. That is just one day that serial numbers for that model were issued, and that's how many on that day only. :-)

    She looks just like the one I learned to sew on, probably a sister ;). That's a great machine that will just keep on stitching away.

    I don't think 40 is too much at all. You will have so much fun with her! :D
