I had to reduce the size of the images. Hopefully they will show up now. They did upload. Yea, I think I did it.

That's a beautiful cabinet! Is that a 201 hiding around the corner?

Yes it is. I bought that about 4 years ago and it was completely frozen. Dried out and the grease cups, etc. were solid like a wax. Took a lot of work to get it cleaned out and shining. It's one of my favorites. I have a centennial Featherweight too. But, I have high end embroidery/sewing combos too. There's a place for all in my room. I don't knock the new machines, but they sure wont last like the vintage ones.
I am hoping to attach the motor that came with the Necchi so that I could switch back and forth if I want. Seller gave me the foot pedal, belt and light too. Any reason this is not possible?

I would go ahead and try, the most likely problem would be the motor pulley interfering with the path of the treadle belt, but putting it all together would be the best way to determine that.

Thank you, I hadn't thought of that.
