    Default Second featherweight - a real bargain

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]521589[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]521590[/ATTACH]feeling puny today so almost didn't go into the upscale thrift shop. And there it was. For $40 for everything! This one I think is older than my first one. Didn't try sewing but it is mostly clean and has the important things like bobbin case and foot pedal. Plus that tube of motor lube. Yay!!

    Great deal! That's what I paid for mine as well! Keep looking for another one that someone may have but not realize what it is.

    Great find! Polish it with TR3 Resin Glaze and you won't believe how good it will look.

    Can't go wrong with that price! Nice find!
    Edited to add: Noticed it came with a buttonhole attachment. We bought that attachment new eons ago and seems like the price was about $35! So you did well!

    I won't automatically say yes-you should always test any product somewhere on the back to be sure, but I've used it on several machines with no adverse effects. If you follow the directions to the letter it will shine up a black machine like you won't believe. I will give one caution about TR3 though, if the clear coat is compromised then TR3 won't fix it, it will remove cracked or crazed clear coats.

    congratulations! from what can be seen of decals, other than that spot where the sewers arm rested, they look great

    cari --where can TR3 Resin Glaze be found? and does affect the decals? i've been polishing/cleaning my fw w oil, is the TR3 better?
