    Here's a pic of the 319W and table I bought with the Penguin Foot. I've never done veneer work in refinishing so I'm going to have to research that. It's a cool table. The top pieces are prisine, though it looks like someone played basket ball against the veneer on the bottom and front. I just saw that I didn't show the bottom...the bottom veneer is completely gone:< This machine is in much better, over all condition of the green 319 I have http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-144713-1.htm and the restoration http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-145486-1.htm

    So...I'm struggling with do I keep this one that's in better condition(still needs an overall cleaning and oiling to work well) or keep the green one.... Keeping both is kind of silly isn't it?? :>

    I don't need a back up. LOL, I have probably 10 machines now.

    No way is it silly to keep both. I love the vintage machines. I have five machines. Two vintage Singer treadles in original cabinets (one was Mama's) another belonged to a lady that my Sister knew, another I bought when I was 24 years old and I'm 71 now. A Singer 600E that I inherited from my MIL, and a newer Brother. I love the older ones best, though.

    Can't answer your question, I'm a "keep both" type. But great finds! Great restoration on the green one.

    Gorgeous machine! Penguin foot? The walking foot that the featherweight uses? Wow, that's some find.

    Keep them both! After all, you wouldn't want to have to change your sewing style completely if either of them went out on you now, would you? (Yes, this kind of "logic" is legal!! LOL)
