    I thought the New Willard machines were only produced as treadles.

    Cabinet is restored cuz its painted a butt ugly blue and has rulers on the side ~ which they didn't bother to photograph.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Likely electrified sometime in it's history. And Yes, it is a butt ugly blue.

    I was going to use a different descriptive phrase other than butt ugly but wanted to keep it cleaner than my first thought.

    Perhaps we should start a thread for Butt Ugly painted cabinets. Sort of like don't paint that cabinet when smoking!

    I've been admiring the decal in Sideways' avatar and here it is. I would be tempted if I had the space for this, especially since it "would benefit from oiling and use". Actually it looks like it needs to be soaked in kerosene and then parts removed and de-rusted. And the decals might be silvered. Oh well.

    Sheluma did you mean my avatar? because that is a Free co. machine. If I were you I would have to try to get it just rescue it I love this decal type so much.
    The bobbin winder and other small rusty parts could be soaked in evaporust , the underside looks to be in good shape I bet that is just a lot of smoke and oil residue on the head, a lot of machine oil elbow grease and car wax she would be beautiful in know time.

    Yes! Your avatar. It looks like the peacock's breast might be silvered. I would get it if I had the space. I literally have no room.

    It's been listed for weeks and he hasn't changed his price. Unless he lowers it to $5 he'll be lucky to get scrap prices.

    Tammi,

    I too, am always running out of room. Stacking is the only way to go. Here's the end of my sewing room. The credenza/ shelves (plus 3 on the floor) are holding 21 machines equaling the foot print of two cabinets.

    I use the PHD method: Pile Higher and Deeper
    Worked for DH who was a courier

    I have a couple of those Ikea bookcase cubes stacked on top of each other, they hold machines and books, then most of the 5 cabinets in the room have one machine on top of them. One of the cabinets is empty, so I can drop the full sized machine of my choice into it for use.

    One machine isn't a big deal to move if you want what's under it. Then there are 2 plastic free standing shelves in the closet, they've held up to 8 machines apiece at one point, but mostly it's tools and batting and such these days.

    At the moment, I'm down 12 machines from my worst, so it's downright roomy in there. I'm still wanting to liquidate another 10, then it's very special machines only that I'd like to add.

    I'm going to rearrange (again) though. My work bench is claustrophobic, and poorly lit, so changes must be made. Once that happens, I'll post some up to date pics.
