    It had the wooden WW box with accessories in it. I didn't look too closely at which ones or if there were bobbins.

    Mercury is poisonous. If anyone wants to send me their old Singers for safe disposal, I'll take them off their hands free of charge.

    "I bought this machine about 30 years ago, I took steel wool and stripper to clean it up, and put a varnish on it."

    Yikes. Wonder how it would look after a couple of gallons of sewing machine oil and a thousand cotton balls?

    Heck, I'll just sell them the needles for SR100000 and save them some shipping costs.

    It's amazing isn't it? That whole side of the cabinet is seriously damaged. I just don't see $400 even given which machine it is.
