It is a nice "One owner, Low Mileage" Gritzner sewing machine built by Pfaff. Not sure about the build date, but I think it's probably a late Sixties machine. And it's heavy, all German quality iron and steel. You might be wondering why we need Sewing machines in the Rusty collection? Well, they are mechanical (sometimes even rusty)marvels and did you notice the upholstery and seats in the B?
And all that power comes with a proper accelerator paddle. "Fly by wire".
After a little while sparks and acrid smoke filled the room. The wire on the connector to the transformer made a nasty short, so the wire and the transformer burnt out.
As the machine was originally built for 125 volt mains and we have 230 volts here, it came with a transformer. The transformer was in homemade wooden box. I'll replace it with a more modern transformer.
Even the box is clever as it folds out to form a platform, so the free arm is incorporated into a flat working surface. There is also the original manual. US version, so this is probably the US market machine.
