    Billy-

    I sure do hope you get that cabinet..
    that's a parlor cabinet, not a bathroom cabinet!



    Did you have a chance to buy the sedan?

    I have a spot picked out in the Living room just for that one piece. I am going to find a super nice Brown Lotus to put into it.

    Good evening everyone. I will be trying some of your ideas for removing rust on all of these parts I got today for 2.00. I don't know what machines they go on but I can practice cleaning on them. Also a photo of the 501a that I got today for $10. It runs, but haven't tried it with thread in it yet. I figured it would be good to use for Billy's tutorial on whatever he's going to do using a 501a. (The attachment box says part for a 403, but the manual says 500 series) It has quite a bit of chips on the paint and really needs a good cleaning, and needs a new faceplate, since the current one is broken out at the top pin.

    Also a photo of an old Free Westinghouse that I saw today, it's in a cabinet with what I think you call a potted motor. It was very, very stiff, but the wheel did turn and the needle bar went up and down. The screw was off of the stitch regulator, but was in the drawer . . .I couldn't get it on. It is EXTREMELY dirty and was not plugged in. It is in a VERY rough cabinet. Serial # is ARE 62947. She has it priced at $30. Not very pretty but am interested in any info anyone may have about it. The Sewing Machine Search Train leaves early tomorrow morning. Have a good weekend! luv2learn

    I have lotus envy pretty bad myself. The long lines on the decals will look great in that cabinet!

    Thank you Penni! She looks very happy here in her new home. I'm looking forward to sewing with her tomorrow and seeing what she can do. Thank you again for pointing out this machine on CL.
