I tackled an easy project tonight – chrome trim piece removal. In the first picture you can see all three of the chrome pieces (side plate, back plate, top plate) after they have been removed. There is a lot of rust that will need to be removed. I’ll probably do that one night in front of the TV so I have something to keep my hands busy
Here is a picture of the back/top side of the Ms. Rusty without the top and back plates.
When the side plate is removed you can see all the inner workings of the presser foot and needle bar. Call me crazy, but think this part of the machine is just beautiful.
