The first machine is identical to mine, all the way to the cabinet. I was lucky enough to have it given to me. I haven't got her going yet, as I need to find some place to set her up. Billy cleaned her and got her running nicely for me. Doing the happy dance with you!

Thanks.
I haven't done a thing to the cabinets yet except wipe off the dust. They were in nice shape. Did cover one of the stool tops as there was a hole in it. But we were covering some chair cushions and had the stuff out so it only took a few minutes to do that. :lol:

Wonderful!!!!! :thumbup:

Is the first machine, in the pics, a model 99? If it is then you are lucky to have a cabinet to fit a 3/4 size sewing machine. They are a little harder to find than the regular sized cabinets. Now you can find yourself a little green 185j and it can take turns being in the cabinet with the 99!!

I did some checking when I first found them and 1 of them is a 99 I believe and it is the first picture shown. Didn't realize it was hard to find a cabinet for them. I have got to do some studying and learn the differences in some of the machines.
