Default my new 66!

So, here she is! I hope this worked, otherwise this is going to be a long thread by me trying to post pictures.
Here goes
As you can see (I hope), she looks like me after I've been painting the ceiling with a long napped roller. Some grease/oil build-up too. The cords aren't frayed or taped and look to be in good condition. The nose plate and decals are in better shape than I remembered (I know it was only yesterday, but I'm a woman of a certain age and I had 2 other machines dancing in my head too).

The veneer is starting to peel off on the table, but if we can't repair it (again after reading Glenn's tut and watching the videos), DH has been playing with making veneer from the black walnut trees we had to cut down from around the house. Is that an okay thing to do?

I forgot to add the picture of the attachments...

The box of attachments were in the drawer.
Sorry about the pictures turned sideways. I'll keep trying to get this figured out.

But I was able to post pictures!

I've been known to use kabob skewers for spool pins till I can get replacements. and you got a fabric guide on the bed. Nice.
my pics still get sideways sometimes. We are pretty forgiving here.

Well I've got kabob skewers and arrosticini skewers. One of those should work. I want to take my time and do it the best way that I can. But I can't wait to start sewing on this one, too.

Congratulations. That is a neat cabinet. I'm not sure if it is a 304 or 306. I don't know how to tell the difference, but I do like it.

From ismacs, the 304 accepts a full size in a portable base. I didn't see the 306, so likely that is what bags has, and me.

Maybe your 101? It is in the 101-4 & 12 manual.

The 101 has the same footprint as the 115, 7"x14.5".
