    I am just happy to see you back online with us, and thank God that you have been such a blessing to us vintage folks.
    I am glad to be able to do something other than cry because I am in misery. Finally I do not hurt as bad as I did and I can actually move around with out my clothes sticking to me and pulling the hide off of me when I take them off. That was the absolute worse I have ever been, I wanted to die just so I could get some relief. But so far so good today and after I hop in the shower I should be doing better. The only thing is that it feels like hot lava pouring over tens of millions of needles on my skin, and do not even try sticking my head under the shower head. OMG it hurts like a son of a gun!!!!! I still cry on that one...........

    Then just change the G to what ever series you are looking for (enter) it will pull it up. I tried the AA series and it worked. Let me know if it works for everyone. I hope it makes sense. :)
    Morningstar, the JA numbers are from the Japanese made machines.

    Nothing like this ever shows up at the closest goodwill to me.
    There was recently one of these machines on CL about 150 miles from me, at a good price, and I would have gone for it, but no $$ at the time. Now it's gone...so...lost opportunity!!

    Actually with the Singers they were Chinese built machines if I am remembering right.

But still I am curious about his over machine that he says he has... anyone know what a German Wertheim handcrank is?

    You should ask about his other machines that he mentions while you are at it.
    Here is the other one:

    You have to be a regular member to sell anything here. I'm guessing your for sale post was deleted.
    Well, I didn't know that. It is $50.00.

    I love the look of the machine looks like fins off of a Chrysler in the late fifties. And it has the cams to go with it that is a good deal!
