I am so sorry I didn't get this done yesterday. I was babysitting my sweet granddaughter part of the day. The poor little babe was sick, nothing serious, but running a low fever. We read books (lots of books!) and she fell asleep on my lap. Later her brother and I played and colored while her mom looked after her. By the time I got home I was too tired to even look at the machines. Plus there was dinner to get, dishes to wash, and a grandson to help with homework. I hope I don't sound like I'm complaining. I know how lucky I am to be part of my grandchildren's lives.
Anyway, I went through the machines today, and identified which ones I am keeping and which ones are for sale. I'll do a post on each one separately, with photos, but this is the list.
All of these machines are original handcranks. VS stands for vibrating shuttle. TS stands for transverse shuttle. I used to sew often with the Kohler and the Gritzer, but haven't for years.
1. Kohler VS, works, missing a slide plate. Some rust, cosmetically challenged. Has a case that says Dinselmann on the side. See the full post.
2. Gritzner VS, works, missing a slide plate. Has a case. See the full post.
3. Another Gritzner? This one has a globe logo. A VS. No case, just a base.
4. Ideal, might be New Home??? Leaf tension.
5. Bradbury VS, British machine, broken base, some rust.
6. TS machine, great base, probably German, some rust.
7. Black painted chain stitch machine, I think some parts are missing, probably won't sew.
All of these machines are priced to sell at $20.00 each, cash and carry. I also have some parts machines I would gladly give away (mostly Singers) and several sewing machine drawers. Nice ones for $5.00 each, sadder ones for $2.00. (The sad ones are from a very weathered White treadle.)
Let me know, either in the comments or through Facebook if you're interested.
Maybe I'll have room for the ones I'm keeping!
