    Well hubby came home and opened the box!! Here are the two "NEW" machines. The first one is the 15-91? and its extras! its suppose to be ready to go!1

    The other we r not sure what it is, what year ect. It need to go in to be looked at it needs a new belt, the finish needs to be cleaned and shined. Any one know how to do that? And I dont have a manual or anything else. BUT I got it for less than $100.00!

    That was originally a treadle machine and can be easily converted back. Its what I sew on when the electric is out or storming like now. Fantastic machine. If I had to give up my FW or my Red Eye, the Red Eye stays. The bases can be found really inexpensively and you disconnect the motor and put on the belt and she will never let you down. She ruffles, shirs, buttonholes, almost anything you want. Mine even has a zigp-zagger attachment and it works great.
