A note about buying a vintage sewing machine. As a buyer of old sewing machines, I’ve learned the hard way, any machine that is coated in dust, dirt and mold has most likely not been used in decades. The grease and oils are likely all dried up and if used could damage parts, like motors, gears, and bearings. Videos are nice but only if they show the machine sewing and show the stitch pattern. Just some friendly advice.
