This listing is finished, so presumably someone has bought it, but just scroll down and look at the pictures...    ;)

Oh... sorry Sewingsue...  :)
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

And a pic of the capacitor.
It's right in the middle and about 3" long and silver.

Thanks Sue, I'm amazed at the condition, aside from the cracking. I think the pedal has been missing for a very long time even the felt in the drip tray is clean and doesn't feel oily.

Ive tucked it away... pending a rewire, which will probably be after Christmas I think...

Christmas Roger? Why wait when you can do it yourself in a couple of hours and enjoy the machine? K'mon you know you want to after waiting all this time for one  :D
I must admit I would like to see it running and being used again.
I am having serious second thoughts on selling mine, it's just so damned easy to get out and use. I think I may just hold on to it and part with a few 201's to fund the eldests new machine instead... I sold my last 221k on a few years ago and regretted doing so, such was the ease of use.

Thanks Barny,
I like the Pat stickers and this one is in nice nick so I dont want to risk my attempt at wiring... and I just dont have the parts to build a new pedal... or spare plugs.

I think its a keeper because its in a good state, but not really a user. I think because it lost its cable it wasnt heavily used. I do need to fix the cracking near the lap tho, but it doesnt look too serious.
