Default Not a bad find

I found this on craigslist, picked it up for $10 net (it was in a table which I cannot squeeze in and sold to someone else with the same disease I have). The machine still spins and even included some attachments, so it was worth the 3 hour there and back drive.

Now all I need to find is a real Singer hand crank!

Fabulous deal. Reproductions are a whole lot cheap and nearly as good.

I would say it was worth the drive. It is close to perfect as far as the detailing goes. Only thing I can see from the angles you show is it will need the rubber ring for the bobbin winder. I hope it works perfect for you.

I guess I shouldn't have bought the watch from the guy also, it was only $100 and I've always wanted a Rolex.
