Default 27 - Pheasant Decal

And, the last one today, the 27. Nope didn't bring this one home either. But the days not over yet!

You must like taking risks, leaving it there.

Oh man, you two. I didn't know. I'm new to this, remember? I turned the wheel and it works. It's not frozen. But no shuttle or bobbins, hand crank or anything like that. So $30 isn't too much?

Did you look under the slide for the shuttle? Hand cranks can be had for around $20>00

The holder (?) for the shuttle is there, and it moves easily. Nothing under the machine. The box that it was sitting on is empty and is for something completely different. I noticed on one of the parts websites, the complete shuttle assembly can be had for around $40.00.

I'll look at that site to see if they have the hand cranks too.

Great, I'm not going to sleep tonight either, am I?

Condition is everything! It's a beautiful head.
The pheasant decals aren't common. Based on the heads I've seen, pheasant decals generally do not take well to time and grime, making this one (I feel)exceptional.
I paid $30 for a Tiffany 115 head, with bed decals worn off in the hand position. It's very smooth! I added a vintage hand crank, $50, and put it in an almost period 301 cabinet, $20.

If you love it, and you can afford it, (and possible future investment for a shuttle, bobbins, hc), it isn't an unreasonable price.

Be careful, though. You might end up buying a parts 27 and decide to refurbish both... ask me about my 3 RedEyes.

ETA: I believe the cabinet with my 115 is a 306, not a 301.
