I found a White 793 on Shopgoodwill.com. These always sell for too much and/or cost too much shipping when found online.
I saw the $9.98 starting price and it was in Sacramento. Timing couldn't be better. I was going to Sacramento this week, so if I won the machine I could pick it up.
To my surprise I was the only one to bid on it. I paid the $9.98 and $5.00 handling. Still a bargain.
It was in a bad part of town, so I went to the Goodwill, told my name, and the clerk rolled my machine out in a cart. I quickly put it in my car and came home.
I opened it up today to try it. I can't believe the warranty card has 9/30/72 as the purchase date. Forty-four years from first owner to me.
A beautiful stitch. I can't wait to try it out on my next project.
Thanks for stopping.
