    That looks like a pretty nice one for the price. But I'm not the expert. Don't know where that is.

He bought 3 over the weekend but haven't gotten pictures yet. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :twisted:
    Your machine looks very nice already and the extra little feet are awesome. I think the decals will show up very pretty with some gentle cleaning. Can't wait to see the after pictures and the other machines you all bought. Enjoy!

    Looks like it's a 646 from Oct 1968. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Kat Fish, that is the EXACT cabinet I have, it finished up beautifully! I shudder to think that the machine that came with it is gone. DH got rid of it years ago, b4 I started on this site and found out what a treasure i had!!

    Billy,
    I have the lady's phone number for the MOP. I'll see if I can get it for you.

    Wow Trish You done good! All the Red Eye model 66 machines near me, the sellers want well over $100 for a rusted hulk.
    You got a set of attachments too.

    Well, this came to live at my house today. Found her on Ebay and she arrived in good shape. Did some very minor clean up and she is good as new. The only problems I have found is the handle is missing on the case and the belt is slipping. Nothing major. I didn't think I would ever own a little beauty like this.

    Her Serial number is EV955299. When I looked it up, it says that number should be a 328K. I have read the charts wrong before, so can someone check it. Am I looking at the wrong one?

    Also any suggestions on Names? I have never named a machine before, but I think this beauty needs one. :-)
