Default 1875 American No. 1 in a rare Three-Quarter cabinet

Yesterday I took delivery of a 1875 American No. 1 in a rare Three-Quarter cabinet. The first 2 pics are the way i recieved the machine/cabinet. The other pics are after some cleaning . I'm super excited about this one!

As well you should be excited about it. As usual, you did your magic on it and it is beautiful.

Have you had a chance to sew with it?

Not yet. After oiling it is rotating freely but I haven't tried sewing with it yet. Soon though!!
