Rate The Condition of Your Featherweight

WHAT GRADE IS YOUR MACHINE

The Singer Featherweight sewing machne scale set up by Graham Forsdyke it seems to be the standard that most people are using. Far be it from me to try to change the normal. So take a look at your machine and if you have a machine that is aging find the serial number and look at my dating page. Then look it over for condition rate the condition and put a value on it. 

10 Just like the day it left the factory. Not a scratch or mark upon it. I think I have ever seen only two machines in this    category.

9 As 10 but with the small, odd scratch or wear mark evident to very close inspection.

8 Very good used condition. All paint good; all metalwork bright. What the average antique dealer would call "perfect".

7 Good condition but rubbing of paint evident and/or some nickel plating worn.

6 As in 7 but more wear to paint and/or some light surface rust to the bright work.

5 The average, hard-used, ill-cared-for machine looking for someone to love it.

4 Poor condition, chipped enamel, rusty metalwork but acceptable for a collection if a rare machine.

3 In need of restoration but a reasonable job for a dedicated enthusiast.

2 Total restoration needed to paintwork and bright metal. It's a brave collector that takes it on.

1 Spare parts only and these would be in need of extensive restoration
