    I have cleaned it and it is sewing - sews through anything - I don't have a manual or disks - I've looked but I can't find anything like it on line. Does that make it a rare machine???? Anybody know a date for this one??? A model number?

    ARGH the pictures of this machine are so illusive
    I can't find any on line and mine don't want to post
    do you think it is a very shy machine???
    It has GNS in big raised letters on the very bottom of the machine
    There is a serial number 672-4142 on the bottom front
    This one uses high shank attachments.
    I'm hoping someone knows what it is.

    I would have dragged that one home kicking and screaming, too! Those old White machines are very nice IMHO. I haven't seen one I hated anyway.
    I don't know a thing about Husqvarna Viking. I don't even know a model number or name for that machine. There is a serial number. Marking on the bottom GNS.

    Are all old Whites the same color....I've got a straight stitch White without all the bells and whistles that I bought new in 1960 that has the same colors. The first white posted looks like it has a ham radio built in...lol. I love my old machine but it's too heavy for me to be hefting around anymore. It sews thru multiple layers of even leather like butter. Congrats girls....you got good machines. I was told they are one of the rare machines that can be converted to a "stretch" machine.
    Ellen......I'm gonna go play now

    It just amazes me what people want to throw out.

    My Grandma had one just like your friend's machine. It was a lovely machine , too bad I wasn't old enough to use it yet.
