Default Wilcox and Gibbs sewing again.

I finally gave up on repairing my W and G. I took it to an OSMG (heck younger than me) He had it for a while but got it running soooo smoothly. Chain stitch is beautiful and can make really tiny stitches. He wanted to buy it after repairing it. Took it to my sis's to show it off. Hmm she had a table runner that needed hemming. I provided the power.





The W and G accessories came from bkay. [ATTACH=CONFIG]599762[/ATTACH]Thanks again.

So, do you know what those bits do? I certainly didn't. Neither did the estate sale people.

Too bad that the people who bought the machine didn't find the accessories.

Ruffler, Tuck Marker, Ruffler, Bed mounted hemmers, Screwdriver, Needlebar wrench with needle set slot, wing nut to hold it to the table, male and female bed screws. Not sure about the circle with long handle.

Long handled circle looks to be a square case key. Now I need a case.
