    Beautiful, of course I'ld say that. I have one just like it with the sphinx on it. It needs to be re furbed AND mine was free. My friend got it for me over 10 years ago

    That's why I just passed one up a mth ago for same price. I gave it the lift test...it failed...If I can't move on own I just can't deal with heavy furniture anymore.

    this one is smaller then the ones we have looked at in the past.. dh carried it all by himself.. i am going thru some pain issues so i haven't attempted to lift or even check it out for that matter.. i will wait until it's all pretty and ready to sew on..

    Looks like a model 27 - just what I am looking for. That is the machine I learned to sew on. Even the cabinet looks like my mom's except for the drawer fronts.

    Congratulations!!!!

    Beautiful machine & cabinet! Congratulations on your new machine. I've got a machine that's identical to it, just haven't sewn on it yet.

    I have one just like this; I think mine is a 1902 model 27. Keep your eyes on the 'net and you'll find the parts you need. I was able to find another shuttle and bobbins for a reasonable price. Treadles are fun once you get the rhythm down, and they can do just about anything the newer machines do with the proper attachments. Enjoy!
