    These are before and after pics. The cabinet has not been touched ~ next week's project. It two weeks to clean and one week to get it running properly. It had a wrong part in the hook assembly and was covered in cig. smoke! Who would have thought. I have to thank Lostn51(Billy) and CabbagePatchKid (Cathy) for all their help and patience with me. All of this would not have been accomplished without them. It will be difficult to sew with her because I want her to stay just this way :roll: Each day I take a look at her and give her a pat.

    I have a chance to purchase one of these for $125. Wasn't sure if that was a good price. No cabinet or case, just the machine, but she has been completely serviced & runs perfectly. Should I get her?

    Bluebonnet, if you really want it and have the money, I would go for it. I am going a little crazy over these machines. Maybe you better get another opinion 8-) I am spending more money since I purchased the machine. I needed to re-wire everything and purchase a part that was not correct. I am looking into a walking foot and FM foot. So I think you might have additional expenses beside just the machine. Hope your bug is not as serious as mine. Good luck with your decision.

    I have a cabinet just like this! Only mine has my very old Necchi in it. Originally had a singer. Mother replaced it for the Necchi. Not sure why. She gave it to me many many years ago! It has a stool that you can remove the seat top and has a bit of storage there. I love mine. My mother purchased it new, porbably about 60 years ago. And, I bet she was MADE IN AMERICA!!
