My mother had this sewing machine since I was born, I never recognized it as one. The machine itself is hidden in the body of the desk. Recently my mom told me about it and today I took a look at it, only to realize that it needs a key to open and take out the machine.
I also found that the reason for my Singer machine not working was a broken cable and talked about how I wanted to resolder it. I did that a few days ago using a bit of sticky solderflux to keep the cable in place while fiddle my iron into the body of the machine.
It worked out perfectly and the machine is running fine again. For practicing, I tore one of my old jeans and started sewing away! Fun!
