Question Close; but no cigar, or penguin


Look what I saw at a GF thrift store!
I'm sorry about the photos I took them with my iPod, and had to post them to this site with the iPod, and I can't seem to rotate them.

Now I'm on the desk top trying to "fix" them.

It's model number is GO 463379. According to the Singer site it was made on June 2, 1910 - 105 years old.

It's a treadle, Red Eye, and the 7-drawer cabinet, machine, and a drawer-full of attachments is going for $75.

The belt is broken, and the little curved piece between the spoked handwheel and the post of the machine is loose. It has 7 or 8 bobbins, bobbin case, needles, most of the original owner's manual, etc.

The Penguin walking foot is no where to be seen.

Well did you get it? It's in nice condition for that price from what I can see. The belts are cheap and easy to find for replacing and the piece that is loose just needs to be tightened down--probably a screw loose or missing.

I tried reposting this again.

No; I didn't get it but I had fun playing.

I have to go back to town Monday. I'm taking the "real" digital camera and will get some decent photos then.

Definitely worth the price. This is a keeper for sure. I also wish I lived closer.
