If the cords are frayed you can attach a hand crank and go to town sewing. http://shop.sew-classic.com/Hand-Crank-Treadle_c31.htm
Those are nice sturdy little machines. Maybe someone in the military would love it for sewing up their gear.

Could be, but that is not the OP's machine, just a picture of a similar machine.

The serial number on the machine is: AG249316. So from what I research that makes it 1941, right?

I will go down and take pictures and post them in about an hour for you to view. Thanks for the replies. Once you see the actual pictures you may change your mind...LOL

dltaylor,

If you've read some of my posts about machines I've refurbished, you'd know virtually nothing chases me away.
The condition of the machine just makes the challenge more interesting.

Joe,

Someone posted on the Board within the past several days about a part of a machine that had been left sitting in a rust remover overnight. I thought I had come up with a simple solution -- I have a ceramic-top kitchen range -- I use a cleaner/polish to clean (recommended by the manufacturer). It does an excellent job cleaning my range top. However, before trying it (NOT) I put some between my fingers and rubbed them together -- there's grit in that compound, so that DEFINITELY WOULD NOT WORK. Sorry!

So if anyone can tell me the name/model of the machine, if I keep it I would like to replace the symbols and decals and make it look as new as possible before displaying it. My husband thinks he can reseal the crack in the case...maybe...

Ok, I got the nerve up to actually plug it in. At first it whinned, so I helped it out by turning the wheel and it does actually have movement!! It's almost like the damage to the cord is not giving it enough juice. So my next question would be how expensive is it to get one of these repaired?? I can't afford to spend 500.00 on a machine that I might never actually sew on...LOL
