    Hoping I Get To Keep One of These Babies

    These are two machines that my DH has totally refurbished, inside and out. I hope he lets me keep one for myself, it seems like it would be the only fair thing to do! Don't ya think.

    Keeping my fingers crossed. I have wanted one for a long time, so will have to see how things go.

    Keep the one in front. It is a little older and has the more elaborate face plate. You definitely deserve one!

    I agree on keeping the front one. I also want to know how he got them so shiny. Will he share the secret with us?
    Thanks.

    He stripped these machines to bare metal, painted and finished them with a clear coat. I felt like I was driving a new car (LOL), when I was taking them for a test drive to be sure they were all timed correctly and sewed a good stitch.

    Beautiful. I wish I liver closer to you so he could shine mine up and replace the scroll work on the bed. Keep the one in front for yourself.

    If he repainted them how did he manage to salvage the decals? They are gorgeous. Can I have one? I would love a FW.

    Your DH is very talented! Make him his favorite dinner with dessert and then ask him for the machine with the fancy face plate!!!!! Good Luck!

    He has to let you keep one. It was your idea to begin with.

    Oh my goodness! What a beautiful job! I denfinitely think you should have at least one! You are the quality control officer, so you should have a machine to compare to!

    LOL, I love that reason Pat.

    Thanks guys for all the comments. Verdict is still out, it is kinda like a mechanic that fixes cars: he usually fixes the cars at home last, because he knows he can get to it later.

    Both babys are gorgeous - It looks like you have one pre WWII and one WWII or later. They both look new and I know my FW sews like a dream, so I'm sure they will too. Your DH does great looking work.

    He did a great job. Do you help him find the machines in need or rehab?
