    My dear husband brought me home a present !!!

    He is such a sweetie sometimes. We were talking the other day about how many sewing machines I have and that the only one I was really looking for was the elusive pink Atlas. So guess what he found on Craigslist ? He works nights, so he called this morning and went and picked her up. She was quite dirty and I have not got her to sew yet, but she runs and the light works and she is so cute. But wow is she ever heavy. Definitely not a machine to lug around.

    Very pretty machine! Looks like the bobbin wheel is pink too.

    Yep, lots of pink on this baby. The rubber part or whatever it is of the bobbin winder needs to be replaced. It is all yucky and crumbly. The tension needs work. the back plate does not seem to respond to the dial. Not sure if that is something I can fix. I also want my husband to rewire it. The owner did that already, but not sure I trust it.

    I love it!!! I bought an old Neccar yesterday for $5.00 but haven't had time yet to do anything with it. When I do, I will post a pic to the board.

    Yes, he is definitely a keeper. He spoils me. I have to be careful telling him I like something. But then after almost 40 years I guess it is good to spoil each other.

    That is a beautiful machine. This is the first time I've heard of the pink Atlas. I'll have to look it up online and read about it.

    I have the same machine, and it is my best FMQer. My mom got it for me last Christmas, and my husband got me a pink Monarch too, so I have two pink ones. My smg said the Atlas came into US down at New Orleans, and were distributed from there. He said, I am just quoting. Enjoy the machine and your husband is a keeper!!

    Use some Triflow oil on it.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
