Singer Sewing Machine Hand Wheel Sticks?I own an old Kenmore model 33 sewing machine that I have used for many years. When stitching, the hand wheel will rotate 3 or 4 times when pressing on the foot pedal and then it gets stuck. I can forcefully rotate the hand wheel and get it to sew again, but must repeat the forceful turning of the hand wheel after a few rotations. Can anyone suggest repairs or recommend a repair service in Maine?

A tall multi-drawer chest

Age of a Lou Regester Lingerie Chest?How old is this Lou Regester lingerie chest? We purchased it from someone who said it was from the 1950s or 1960s. The label on the inside drawer says Lou Regester, but no place where it was made nor model number. However, I am from the Phoenix, Arizona area and saw that there was a company based in Phoenix and Tucson, so the dresser could have been made here.
