Hmmm - is that close enough for you to pick up and ship? You'd have to keep the treadle for your effort.

I've got a real hankering for an early 15 like that, and it sure is pretty. . .

Yea, if you’re into zigzagging lady’s underwear......

A Singer 143W2 is really not much of an “Upholstery” machine, but it’s probably a nice aluminum ZZ machine.

I don't think there is any going back from that.
I need that - two of them one one each side of my drive way - of course I would use derelict machines instead of perfectly good ones...

The Singer Wrap-around Hand Attachment, Bobbin Winder, and Balance Wheel arrived today in excellent condition. Now to decide what machine to mount it on....

Iíve got to finish cleaning it up and try to figure out what decal set is on it, then see if I have a machine in my stash that matches it.

Iíve got this electrified, re-painted, re-decaled machine that Iím thinking about putting it on, but Iím sure that the decals wonít match up, and the machine is probably too early for the hand attachment. Although, Iím not sure that would be a consideration since the machine has the wrong decals on it anyway, but I think a fiddle bed would look cool with a handcrank on it.....if it fits.
