I presume sewing machines don't have feelings, like being envious of other machines around them that might be getting more hands-on time. So it is with this little green guy. He's (I'll just make the assumption that it is a he) content being green without having an envious piece of cast iron in his extremely heavy little body.
While these machines aren't the quietest-running on the block, they are still well made and look real nice, with good attention to detail. This one makes a nice stitch too.
The bobbin winder tire is in exceptionally good condition for being nearly as old as me. Or someone has replaced it in the recent past. Maybe I'll just say we've both aged well... At least one of us has.
I wonder if this person is still around, Mr. (or Miss) Case Inspector No. 42...
Here's an after shot of the lamp, after extricating the layer of duct tape goo. It's a little scuffed up from normal wear and tear.
Before shot of the duct tape. Yuk (same machine, different light source).
