More Machines...

I recently had the opportunity to fix up these two machines for a friend. There wasn't anything really wrong with them - both just needed new needles and a cleaning and oiling. Both were really pretty machines.

 The International was a twin brother to my Remington, except for a few smaller details. Some of my favorite differences were the patterned face plate and the seam allowance markings on the needle plate.

This one was the second Singer Featherweight 221 I've worked on. This one was just a little newer than the other one, with a newer upper tension assembly with the numbered dial, and a little shinier!

Check back next week for my current, exciting sewing machine repair (hint: restoration) project!
