Bought for a song from a lovely little old lady too arthritic to sew. Works. But… It really needs a new power cord/pedal assembly. Debating buying one ($45–much more than the machine) or seeing if one of my music nerd friends is enough of a patch cable making dork to just wire/solder new cords on to the existing female plug end and pedal that I have. Still, despite all that–LOOK HOW PRETTY! This picture does not do it’s shiny chromeness justice. This is the ’57 Chevy of sewing machines (it’s a ’57 Canadian Kenmore).
