I had to go on line to find my machine because there is no market for vintage sewing machines in my area. I've been checking my local Craigslist and I even checked with a sewing machine repair guy in town to see if he had any vintage machines but he only had one, it was a Singer 404 without any extras. I didn't want it.
So this is the machine I bought from the ebay seller. It was made in 1949 and has the striated face plate. I love how shiny the presser feet are because lots of times they are kind of rusty and need cleaning, there is also an owner's manual, a buttonholer, and a cool screwdriver. The seller said they recently had it serviced and oiled, and that it runs well. I requested that the seller double box the machine for shipping which they agreed to.
I ordered some extra bobbins and a 1/4" patchwork foot for the machine. I will use it for piecing quilts and simple projects. This machine will be kept set up on my sewing table. Estimated delivery of the machine is December 2.
