    Too bad the cabinet has been painted, but still a 503 for someone to clean up.

    Umm - a lifetime of collecting that fits in a couple of sewing drawers? I've been at it 8 months and I've got a few rooms full LOL!!

    BTW I just picked up three boxes of sewing notions (mostly quilting stuff) for $8 at an estate sale.

    Not too hard for the aux pin. It shares with Brother machines.
    The flip ups are available, I don't know about the springs, but they're pricy.
    This is new replacement parts, vintage of course, is hit or miss.

    That one is listed again? Seems to me I saw that a few months ago. Guess none of the bikers here for the rally found it irresistible.

    That one looks better than the one I just fixed up. I figured it for a parts machine. It's all there but ugly. Just put a magnet sheet over it.

    Were there more pictures that I missed? He said he took a lot.

    If $800 is only going to help with his rent, I wonder how much it is.
