But I caved. I bought it. It is far from prisitne. I am weak. That is all there is to it.
The decals are lovely from the front and the paint is good. The machine is only 55 years old. I don't think it was used much.
Then I was able to remove the hook, in all its glory.
I think it will be ok. Just more work. I will, no doubt, take the clips off of the hook and really scrub it and hone it. I just hope I can get into all of the little crevices.
And I hope it wasn't folly to buy this machine. I guess, though, that will be a good name for this machine. Buddy Folly. Boy. It has been a long time since I named a machine. Wonder if this means its a keeper?
