    I hadn't seen one before, but I like it. You should pm Lostn51, he's the resident vintage machine expert.

    Welcome to the board and great that you are posting right away. What nice machines you have.

    There is lots of information in an area called the Vintage Machine Shop in the virtual section. On the main page at the bottom select All user-defined sections. In that area you will find the vintage sewing machine shop.

    Congratulations on your find and rescue. I'm sure it will have a wonderful home now.

    Nice! I collect little machines and have 35-40, but I love the old full size blk machines. Just haven't found a hand crank (YET). I found a Spartan at a garage sale for $5. :D
