    Here's what I got on eBay. She's 58 today, born in Elizabeth, NJ. She had her original case and most of the attachments she came with plus a few extras. I had to look most of them up to find out what they were. She doesn't seem to have had much use, and I fed her some oil and plugged her in - stitches look perfect.

    I guess I've joined the Featherweight cult at last!

    Thanks, you all!

    I'll add that a few weeks ago my DH and I were in an antique shop and I spotted one for $750 - It was not a 222 or otherwise special, either. That made the ebay price seem ever so much more reasonable. I should stop by that shop and thank the person for putting that crazy price on it because without that comp, DH might have been less cheerful about my purchase :) It also helped that he wanted to buy a couple of golf clubs and has noticed the fact that I never complain about his spending.

    Happy dance time, for sure!

    Uh-oh -- now what? See that strip of white gunk on the machine bed? That's from some ancient masking tape. Without much thought I got after it with a product called "Goof-off". It took the tape residue off, but it also took off what appears to be a lacquer sealer. It's shiny and black underneath, but the transition between that area and the rest is hazy. I don't dare keep going and remove all the sealer for fear of taking off the decals, which are in great shape still. It's just a cosmetic problem, but if anyone has any suggestions I'm "all ears". Thanks!
