Introducing my new machine - a vintage White 1525

I wanted a vintage machine that was a little more sturdy than my Singer Stylist 7258. It makes a noise when I begin to sew a seam and I don't care for it. It seems to work ok but I haven't sewn anything of significance either in almost a year.

I can't find much information on the White. I found the manual online but haven't found anyone who actually is sewing on one. I'm not sure if they are in business any longer but parts seem to be readily available. I can't wait to clean, oil then sew on it!

I have a White 1525. Great portable machine. I've had it for 23 years. It's a pain to oil since it doesn't have an easy way to remove the plastic housing. It still sews most fabrics well. Except it has trouble on heavy fabrics like denim.
