Serial number AJ863504… born on October 4, 1950. She is a Centennial badged machine and shares her birthday with 10,000 siblings born on the same date.
I think it is curious that the 128 uses a vibrating shuttle… old school design in the 50’s.
For a little bckground on the 128, I have found the following:
The 128 is a 3/4 size machine to the model 127 which is a full size machine. The only differences I can find on these models is that the 128 has a high mounted bobbin winder, while the bobbin winder The 127 is a low mounted mechanism. In 1912, there were some minor changes to the tension release mechanism.
More to add… it’s a work in progress so check back later!
