Many of you know we have been cleaning Chris' dads house out. Not many treasures were found but I did manage to bring home his Grandmothers 1942 kenmore sewing machine w/ cabinet. The machine is in perfect condition. I call it the bullet. His Grandmother was very meticulous and took great care of the machine. In fact the drawers still contained all the attachments for this machine as well as the manual, and a pair of pinking shears.
I want to take the machine to Missouri Sewing Machine Co. to have it cleaned and serviced, although the electrical cord is fully attached to the inside of the cabinet. I can unplug the machine and take it out but can't get the cord out. I don't really want to have to take the whole cabinet in.

 The cabinet has a little water damage on top but is in pretty good condition. No ripped veneer. I am currently stripping the cabinet right now. All hardware has been removed from the cabinet and will be cleaned as well. I will have to post a picture of it stripped. It looks really good. This picture doesn't show how cool the veneer on the draws really looks. My plan is to stain it a darker cherry color. This oak color is not my style.
