Default Another greyhound for the pack

Dragged this home yesterday. Bare wires showing, missing bobbin winder. Very drab machine. Glad I didn't pay much for it. but it has fascinating innards. Oiled up and a lot smoother. I haven't threaded it yet. We'll see.


Light running? Not yet

What should it look like? Where was the bobbin winder?

The poor thing looks like it's had a hard life.

In the innards picture you may see an arm that pivots just left of the access plate hole. The other side of the arm is about 3 inches long. I assume it ties to a winder somehow. I'd like to see a working one, but then again I may find another machine winds the bobbins. It did have the cord to the motor replaced so someone cared for it once.
