Habitat Restore sewing machine

Just came back from the Habitat Restore, there are 12 sewing machines waiting to be loved. One was crying out to me as I left, a 1951 Singer 201 in a nice table, missing the power cord, no attachments but the gears were so stiff I could barely rotate the flywheel. Looked inside and it was black with hardened crud. They wanted $125 for it. I explained to one of the workers the machine was worthless as it was, but the table was worth maybe $40. Left my name and phone number behind... maybe they'll call me, maybe not. I need another Singer like I need a hole in the head.  Someone willing to put the time into it is all it needs.  Poor thing needs major work though.
