This machine, built in 1922 but has been in my family for 40 years. When my mom gave it to me 15 years ago she said "you should put a motor on it". Well, I finally did. I also rebuilt, cleaned, tuned it up a bit and made the table. Not to mention, with some advice from Pineapple Jay, I picked out the appropriate needles and thread to start getting a little more decorative with my saddle making.
