We found this machine while we were in Madison delivering the last bunch of sewing machines to The Sewing Machine Project. It was pretty dirty, and it has some cosmetic flaws, but overall, a pretty nice machine. The motor is strong and fast, and we didn’t have to rework it.
It is capable of making decorative stitches with additional pattern cams, but I did not get any with this machine, so this machine will only be doing straight stitch and zig zags.
When I was cleaning it up, I discovered it had a broken door. If you look at this picture, this is the good end. See the hole in the piece that sticks out? That hole fits over a pin on the machine, so the door can swing open on the end of the machine.
The hole on the top end of the door had broken, so it couldn’t hang onto the pin. My hubby cut a ‘slot’ into the door, inserted a washer, ground it down to the right size, and super glued it in place.
Good as new and works just like it should.
I have twelve sewing machines all ready to go now, and I have one in the garage to work on. I hope it cleans up and works ok. I really let myself get behind on these machines, and I am ready to have the ‘to do’ list finished!
