Wheeler & Wilson No. 9

Long time readers know that I sometimes use this blog to offer machines for sale.  There is a catch though:  NO SHIPPING.  Ever.  For Any Reason.  No matter how badly you want me to.  Not even if you scold me for posting something you want, but cannot have.  (Yes, this happens, even after these disclaimers).

I'm posting this for a friend in my quilt guild.  She wants it to go to a good home.  Contact me by emailing me directly at cherylwarren27278 dot gmail dot com for the very reasonable price.  We live in the Piedmont region of North Carolina,

The pictures tell the story.  Head only, no treadle.  Straight stitch foot on machine, narrow hemmer and at least two bobbins (there may be another one in the machine, I don't know).

Decals are still present and would PROBABLY clean up a bit.

Looks like all the vital parts are present and correct, but it is untested. It does turn smoothly.  Sold "as is".  And as mentioned, the very reasonable price reflects this.

The usual bed alligatoring.  Because there are no decals on the bed (and never were), the bed finish can be stripped off and re-varnished for a smoother surface.  If you are the kind of person to tackle that.

Bobbin winder present.

So, that's it.  These are legendarily wonderful machines.  If you have only ever treadled Singers, you will be impressed with the superior engineering of a Wheeler & Wilson.  Of course it was more expensive for them to manufacture them, which may have something to do with the fact that eventually they sold out to Singer.  Just conjecture on my part.

Let me know if you are interested.
