Kingston Industrial Window-matic Precision Sewing Machine

I'm not much of a sewer, but I couldn't pass up this really nice Kingston sewing machine I spotted at Savers on Warm Springs.

Kingston isn't a well-known maker of sewing machines, but I believe they are in some way associated with the maker Brother. This model is a Window-matic Precision, and it's still in wonderful condition. It weighs a ton and everything still seems to be working well on the machine. Plus, it's an awesome shade of blue!

Why didn't you have this when I was working at Trump and needed to sew my pants once a week!

Want. Kindly send it to SoCal! I wonder if it would stay in my trunk like the sewing machine I bought off craigslist 5 years ago? Sigh.

I have been sewing on this same machine for 50 years, it was originally my mother's. I remember my mother saying it was "really" a Brother, but was less expensive under the Kingston name because built in China (at the time seen as a negative, goods from China were perceived as flimsy and cheap.) Do you have the owner's manual? I have everything but that...

How much is this machine worth. I got 1 just like this but mine is in a table. It is in very good condition and works great
