Good eye Leon. It is a 127. I was having trouble uploading and didn't check my typing. If a moderator could change that 66 to 127 I would appreciate it.

The stop motion screw is different on this machine. It works the same, it has a set screw to keep it from coming off, but its not a solid nickel plated peace. Im wondering if it had a decorative cap that is now missing.
