    I can remember making marbles do that when I was a kid - you heat them hot then put them on ice...
    Thanks for posting that!! No, I'm not going to buy it, I acquired a 99k this weekend and the motor was unbadged, (the bracket was) and I wondered if it was original. Since the one you posted has original dirt on it, and the same set up, I'll guess that the one I have is probably original too.

    Also, just as an FYI - I sent a message to the curator of the SFmuseum just to be sure it was legitimately acquired.
    Update: this CANNOT be the machine discussed in the museum display. The Willcox & Gibbs serial number A 685221 dates it for after 1917... The wheels are fine (could have been replaced, but still) date is wrong.

    beautiful machine and cabinet though, and the price was right.

    "Original dirt" - I like that comment!

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    This one has been for sale on craigslist for quite some time. I have seen it come up each time I search.

    This one will probably be for sale for quite a while also.

    I'm guessing they read QB .. appears they've changed the pictures to actuall "stuff". Darn ... I was up for a good laugh.

    It was always actual stuff. For $50 if it wasn't 100 miles away, I might go get those boobs... uhm,.. books and stuff. The zig-zagger dies are worth it to me, the rest I'd just get to someone else.

    Tammi, in that boob box of black top hat disks is a beige thing - it goes under a throat plate for a 401 - then you leave the throat plate up a little and you can darn or FM if you like. I got one with my 411G.

    the boobs in that ad were no doubt a typo for books.

    ahhhh .... I don't think I bothered to actually READ the ad. That explains it!

    I know they're in demand but sheesh! Someone is really proud of the featherweight they probably don't know how to use. It makes me a little sad inside.
