Default I Purchased a Featherweight 221K!

I went to "look" at what this seller had to offer today and he had 4 221k's and 1 222k free arm (Hope I got the number right) that were his mothers.

After examining all the 221k's I decided on this one as it seemed the cleanest, came with the most stuff and sewed well right off the bat. The case is a little scratched, but it doesn't smell at all.

She is a 1946 model, made in New Jersey. She sews a wonderful stitch.

I haven't cleaned her up yet...I'll have to do some research to see what is the best way to do that....But, here she is.

He also has a 222k free arm there in mint condition for $1450.00 Canadian if anyone is interested. (That would be just over $1000.00 USD) I wouldn't mind taking it to the US for you to ship it. PM me if that's of interest to anyone.

Congrats! I'm so glad you found one. I was sewing on my white FW today. I just love those little machines.

There is a website that gives lots of information on maintenance/servicing of featherweights. Sorry I don’t know the web address but I know someone on here will. LOL
