I have a new machine!
She is beautiful and I love her. A little research lead me to find out that she was made precisely 60 years ago between Feb and April of 1952, she is not in absolutely perfect condition there are a couple of dinks in the black paint so I am not afraid to use her but her gold decoration is in good condition and shows no wear. Master Chaos the second son and junior engineer took the side plate off to examine the workings and then the base cover, pointing out cams and things that needed grease and points that needed oil. He noted that the cover of the hand book says 'for family use' and that was all the justification he needed for taking the screwdriver to it.
I think she looks lovely tucked inside the throat of my long arm.
