Long story short, I bought it for $15.50. Unfortunately, it was dropped while it was being delivered, and this is what I received...
|The machine with case pieces strewn throughout...|
|The case that was immaculate when it left the shop, was|
in shambles when I received it. The hardware is all still good
so I might make a new case and use the original hardware.
|You can see here where the machine tried to break through the|
side of the case.
|Cables and the bobbin wrapped around the machine|
over and over again.
|Unfortunately, the plastic base also broke... The whole end of it broke|
completely off. You can see one of the pins... The holes they were in
were completely sheared off.
Surprisingly, the machine actually came out of this pretty well... It was covered in sawdust which was the result of the case disintegrating around it.
I've got a bunch of stuff on my plate right now, so I won't be working on this in great detail anytime soon, but I will post a bunch of "In Process" photos when I start working on it. My intention is to more or less learn from this one... If I make a few mistakes, I'll learn from them, and I only have $15.50 invested...
If all goes well, I'll sell it and buy a 221 that needs some TLC. At worst, I'll disassemble it and sell the parts.
This weekend my daughter and I will be going to The Creation Museum and the Newport Aquarium for a Father & Daughter weekend.
