    Today was half-price day at the Salvation Army. I found lots of goodies but this sewing machine made my day!!! It is in excellent condition for its age. I am guessing it was made in the 60's. It felt super heavy so we weighed it. It weighs a whopping 40.8lbs!!!

    Nice machine! Great sale, and I know you will love sewing with it. I have never heard of Universal brand. It is Japanese, so imagine it to be kinda like an older clone of Juki.

    Enjoy it! Ronda

    The books are such a blast from the past! I am getting a kick out of "Adventures in Sewing". It is old but has some great tips in it.

    Beautiful....bet this sews like a dream. I have an old 1950's Pinnock (made in Australia) and it is an absolute treasure. It knocks spots off my 20 year old Singer and can sew through anything.
