    That's a gorgeous machine and cabinet. Looks like they were well taken care of. I like your dog under the leaf of the cabinet.

    You can come over anytime Saron and use my machines, but they stay with me. I love them both.

    I just became the owner of a 15-91 that I found at an estate sale this weekend. Works great, but am in the process of oiling it and am now waiting for some singer lubricant to arrive (purchased online) to lube the gears. I can only assume it has not been oiled or lubed in a very long time. I know you will enjoy your new acquisition.
