    I bought this via Craigs List for $30:> It came in a table, but one of the pins in the hinge is broken, so until I can get a replacement it's not safe. Besides I wanted to oil it, clean it and try it out. It sews a great stitch and is one of those badged machines that came out of Japan in the 60's maybe? Cool and retro:> I need to replace the belt, try to find a replacement hinge for the table and get a low shank zig zag foot for it. I borrowed one off my other machine. For some reason it came with an assortment of feet and bobbins that don't work on it! Obviously, the previous owner had multiple machines. Anyway, it's a Needlecraft 142-B Auto zigzag. The paint is a bit chipped in areas, and the machine is not pristine. It's missing a spool holder. But, still a good working machine for $30...

    It really amazing how much they could put on a machine back then huh?!?! I think it is a wonderful addition to your collection and it should serve you really well!

    Neat-o man....I bet the decorative stitches will be fun once you get a zigzag foot.
