ooops! we crossed.

i see that the varnish is crazing a little just like on mine, but a little more on yours. i think my cabinet is in a little better condition, over all. lucky you to get extra feet. i also got the book. are you going to refinish it? do you also have the red fuzz/wick? surprisingly the cord is okay. the legs on the table need tightening, too.

what are the last 4 digits on the serial number? and did you just wax the cabinet?

you will love sewing on the 99 ! it will not affect the value if you refinish it. yes, hang onto the cabinet--3/4 size cabinets are very hard to find. Great find !

Wow, talk about bring back memories. My mother had the same machine when I was growing up, but it wasn't in a cabinet. We were never allowed to use it, just the treadle. Shame I can't find out what happened to it, Alzheimers has taken over.

I would not refinish the cabinet....it takes alot away from the value.
I would just clean it up and use some good furniture polish/ cleaner on it..

Oh, your lucky, those old machines stitch like a dream. I rescued one from the trash next door a few years ago. She was moving and didn't want to haul it around. Cleaned it up and gave it to a young neighbor who wanted to learn to sew. No zig zag, but she wanted to sew for her little girl. it works like a charm for that.
