I have an old machine that I have NOT tried to bring back to life. I think all it needs is a belt, but for now it's in suspended animation LOL. Yours is beautiful!!!

(thank you Rdesonia for the links)
Mine is ALSO a 66, but not w/the fancy detailing. Also electric. Would love to read your updates w/getting it running, especially how noisy it might be. My mom learned to sew on our 66 and she said she remembers it shaking a lot. Do you have a pic that shows the table too? I'm curious if it looks like the one I have!

How cool is that?!!! I actually learned to sew on one similar. My Grandmother was quite the seamstress and had 6 machines in her extra bedroom. She showed me how to make tea towels on one just like yours!

Love it! I piece quilts on a 221 and free motion quilt on 15-91. No modern machine can match them IMO.
