The end of the search- a 201

   Ever since I saw how the straight stitch looks on a 201 courtesy of Elizabeth, I longed for such a stitch to piece and sew. I tried a lot of leads, but today, courtesy of Terri, an estate sale looking queen, I was able to lug home this 201 for small change. It has the manual and all attachments, but no spool pin and is very dirty, but not rusty. You cannot believe the cord. I did not dare plug it in. My husband did and blew the circuit breaker in the garage. Next, to open her up to see the wiring on the inside. Elizabeth has said she can rescue the motor if the wiring is scary. I cannot wait to get it running. I will ditch the cabinet. So very exciting!

I would hit that with some Tuff Stuff to get that mold off. The cord can just be replaced. Check the wires on the motor. GOOD SCORE !
