One day last December I was "trolling" on Craigslist. I usually do not check out ads that don't have a photo. For some reason I read the ad for this machine. I had to drive to Western Mass to fetch her but since it wasn't THAT far past Albany, I went. I must admit that I paid much more than my usual 40 bucks, but I love this look. I have done nothing to her since she was very nicely cleaned up and running very well. However, now that I have all that soldering experience, I think I will solder a couple of connectors to the wires that attach to the three stud connection. It's just more tidy.
