    Here's a couple pictures of my birthday lpresent. I looked it up by the serial number. It's a 1924 Singer Model 66. I don't have good pictures of the cabinet yet. There is some damage to the veneer. But there is a lot of decorations on the cabinet. All of the ones that I see online are plain.

    It looks in pretty good shape. The treadle doesn't show any rust and the cabinet is sound (not wobbly). Looks like I need to find parts of the bobbin winder.. But the price was right.

    That is gorgeous. Try to find someone who can either do the restoration of the cabinet or can tell you how to do it. That will be priceless once you finish doing all the work on it. Please make sure to post it when you're done. Thanks for sharing pics of your B'day present. Just wonderful present.

    It was a great present. The best thing about the day, everything else about the day was awful, not birthday relayed but one of the worst days.

    Happy Birthday and I love your birthday present.

    You share a birthday with my daughter, she would have been 37 yrs old. She has been gone almost 7 years.
