    Take a look at this, it must have been buried somewhere.
    This is one looks just like that at a local consignment shop...priced at $35!!
    Looks like one of these, just that someone knocked the corner off the front right side.

    He said it ran really smooth and he was RIGHT!!! I haven't run it with thread yet but was amazed at how much pep it has!!! This sewing machine is H-E-A-V-Y---must weight about 200 lbs...lol!

    Billy, I can't figure out how to put the spool pin back in or even where it goes :roll:
    Cathy, very pretty Atlas! I love the color!

I bought it with my overtime pay money, so it didn't come out of our household money!! I'm legal!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    My wife said I could not have any more machines until I paint the house. I have a really big two story house so it could be awhile for me. :lol: :lol:
    Janice, congratulations - I think, getting the machine was a great way to spend your overtime!

    Glenn, you better get to painting!!!!!!!!!!

    Charlee, that machine is exquisite! Does it say '87' as in 1887? Wow, what a find! That one better stay at your house for the kids to inherit!

    Thanks gang!

    Nancy, it does! "Pat. Sep 87"...I'm pretty sure that is NOT when it or the machine were made, but I really don't KNOW when the machine was made..I'm hoping to find out tho!

    Edited to add:

    A bit of detective work with my partner, Google, tells me that this machine was made in the early 1900's... I found this "timeline":

    In the early 1900s, the company apparently moved its operation to Cleveland, Ohio, and was renamed the A.G. Mason Sewing Machine Company. In 1916, the company was purchased by the Domestic Sewing Machine Company which itself later merged with the White SM Co. in the 1920s.

    So because the slide plate tells me that the machine is A.G. Mason, Cleveland, OH, the machine was made after 1900, but before 1916....

    Looks as though it would be good to wind embroidery floss.
