Dan, it didn’t take long to find a new machine.
This morning the dog and I liberated a old Universal DeLuxe ZigZag machine from its damaged cabinet. 40$ for the machine, knee control, original feet, a few spare parts, and a ton of bobbins. The machine was cleaned and adjusted about a decade ago and had a new motor installed. It has sat relatively unused since says the previous owner.
The old stretch belt is dry checked pretty bad from storage. 3$ for a replacement singer belt (universal and standard are Singer owned) A few drops of oil and we are sewing again.
Now to see if it fits in the slot on my bench...
