Look what I acquired today!!! My very first vintage sewing machine. Thrown in was a treadle machine with table and base. The metal base can be salvaged but the machine and table and drawers have to go to the recylce. They are way beyond repair having spent a lot of time outside in the elements. Anyway, here is my new baby. Now I have to find spare parts and most importantly an instruction manual for it. Anyone got a spare? I've no idea what I've let myself in for.
It is in good condition since it is 60 years old. The metal bits are all nice and shiny and the wheel turns effortlessly and quietly.
