    I bought her - White Rotary

    Went to see the machine last night. She looked like she wanted to work and needed a home. So I took the plung. Reminds me of my grandmother's.

    I took her home and oiled her with the cute little oil can that came with her and, wha la! She's purring like a kitten. There are so many accessories that I didn't get a chance to see if they even fit or maybe came from another machine. But if they fit, and from the looks of the accessories, I would say whoever owned her did some professional sewing. The belt even looked original.

    Anyway that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Her she is. Still needs some tender loving care, but she's sewing.

    Pretty machine! Treadle table looks in decent shape too!! So many are posted for sale where the treadle table isn't as ornate, is falling apart, and looks about stripped.

    She's a very pretty machine and the cabinet will clean up well. I hope you put fresh oil in the cute little can. Good job finding a nice one!

    Lucky you and lucky sewing machine. It looks as if you got the "twigs" cabinet also.

    Great machine and cabinet. I am sure you will love it. Looks like those are the correct attachments for a White Rotary. Sure got a good amount of them and in good condition.

    I'm 65 years old and my mother had one just like this. She bought it second hand and used it her entire life. My daughter has it now. As long as you keep it from rusting and replace the leather belt, it will sew until the next millenium. Nothing seems to wear out or break. All my clothes were made on this machine until I grew up and moved away. You can still get the unique bobbins.
