The Husky will go well with the Beemer.

EEEEEE! That's almost the same machine I have! Except mine came from a thrift store where it'd been sitting for a few years, and didn't have any of the nifty attachments. :( Wargh! Allllll those feet that it mentioned in the booklet!

Also, mine is a 62, instead of a 63. The only differences I can see are in the pedal plug position, and the color of the cord to the pedal. Still has the nifty-as-hell winder that automatically disengages the fly wheel when there's a bobbin on it.

I'm curious... do the cams offer stretch stitches (with forwards and backwards fabric motion), or just zig-zag stitches? I haven't found jack on the web about the 21's...

Mine doesn't offer external cams, so I can't comment on what that one's got, but the 62 is plain zig zag. Hmmn, but looking at he manual that came with mine, that's probably because it's a 19E. (No sewing machine place I've talked to has heard of that particular model. :\ )

Aah, yes. Unless I'm totally wrong, the model 19 didn't offer cams. Does it have a switch on the back for picking your zig-zag stitch?

The model 21 has a door in the back (the spool-pins are on the door) that opens up to give you access to the cam.

I'm surprised that nobody knows anything about the model 19. Have you tried the Viking Sewing Center in San Jose on Lincoln? Theyv'e been around for a long time. Quite a few model 19's went on eBay earlier this month, and I didn't realize that there was a top-end model in the series that used cams until I saw one pop up a few days ago.

the case is fab, and the turquoise cord on the foot pedal is oh so retro. i'd almost buy it for that cool '50 gifts' book that comes with it :)

well, except for it, and all the contents, are 1963.

But yeah, I might spend real money on it.

I love my Husky 145, but it's not old.
