    You got a Featherweight?!?! Congratulations!!!

    It is a 221-1 with 30,000 of them allotted on October 1 1948.


    And if I was in Daytona I would be at the track!! :lol: :lol: But that sounds like it was a nice deal on a white machine!

    I might have the hinges out in the studio let me check for you.

    Thank you Billy! I hope you do.

    That is my hubby's favorite gadget. He would surely miss it if I snatched his. Still great idea. Maybe I can ask for one for Christmas. Have you tried wearing it and sewing? Did that work too?
