Well being a new guy I thought I would ask here before I act. I just found a Singer 7-41 ( large machine) for free. It says property on us navy, it is missing the plate under the foot, the motor, and foot control thing. I looked at my upholsterers Consew and mine is twice the size and a deeper throat than his. Just wondering if it is worth taking to a shop to have gone through for the occasional auto upholstery redo.
