White Rotary 77
The machine I found was a White Rotary 77, from the 40's, complete with accessories and manual . Also included was an empty mouse nest on the tray under the machine when I lifted the sewing machine head up.

box of attachments and feet that I found in one of the drawers
manual minus the cover
I'm not sure if I will lug this one home, as I would need to find a space for it, but I am tempted, as I've been told this is a wonderful machine and also doubles as a desk when both of the top side extensions are closed. This cabinet also has an old ink well in one of the top drawers.

bobbin casing intact
underside of machine...no rust
I didn't get a photo of the front of the cabinet, as it really crowded with boxes around the front of the machine.
The Singer 301 and 328 that I recently acquired have been gone over thoroughly..cleaned and oiled and run beautifully. The 328 didn't come with any attachments or manual. I was able to find a set of cams and extra feet for the 328 and I made a copy of the manual that I found on the internet. I just need to clean up the wood cabinets that they go into. The owner of the sewing machine repair shop, Able's on Rte. 44, Raynham, MA told me I got really nice machines and a tremendous bargain.
