She's a Singer Merritt 5405. As you can see, my trusty assistant the Chief approves. I shall call her Merry, as in "Merry is Sewfast". She didn't have any bobbins, but that was not a problem for me. I dug in the bobbin bin and pulled out some that fit her. She sewed a perfect seam the first push and then revealed a few tension issues, but I think I have that ironed out now. How much did I pay for this beauty you ask?
Yep...Five bucks is all they wanted to take her home! Pretty sweet find. I believe I already have the manual downloaded, because I think another machine I gave away was a Singer Merritt 5405. Now to clean her up, give her a good oiling and come up with a maiden project for her. It's a great day in the neighborhood!
