She came in the 1950's faux crocodile skin carrying case, a motor, footpedal and light and with the "modern" faceplate. The carrying case is very practical it protects my machine during transport. I absolutely love the motor, foot pedal and the light. This means that I have two machines for the price of one. I can use it at home with all the modern conveniences and at an event as a hand crank machine. We only need to loosen two screws to change it!
So I bought an original hand crank on Ebay and took the motor, foot pedal and the light off.
I also bought the old version of the faceplate to make her look older. Plastic surgery reversed!
Now she looks exactly like an older version from 1911 and is ready to attend her first event!
For safety reasons in time the motor, foot pedal and light will be fitted with new black electrical cords. Now it is time for me to start practising sewing with a hand crank machine.
