I picked up Mom's Singer from getting serviced yesterday. Since I had to cut the cord to the foot pedal to get it out of the cabinet, I knew it needed some electrical work, and he ended up completely rewiring it. There were visible wires, and it was just time. After all, it's been around since probably the mid to late forties.
The cabinet needed a bit of freshening up, so I sanded down the top a bit, and rubbed in some Old English. I wanted it to still show some age, not look pristine, and I think I got that. There's still some cleaning up to do in some areas, mainly the metal hinges, but for now I wanted to get the machine back in.
When I brought the stool in from the other room, inside were the manual, some extra feet, and the buttonhole attachment, along with the instructions for using the buttonholer.
And wah lah...another project I can check off my list!
