 +1/29/2017 - Replaced badly decayed cord in plug/pedal mechanism. Seems to be working better. Pedal should probably have a base added. Plug part is now plugged into a cheapo surge protector that's kind of holding the whole thing together. Whole assembly should probably be reworked, but this will get it moving. Replacement motor/pedal might be a good idea too (already on hand, though lamp would have to be wired differently). 
 +Pedal works by taking hot of line, and running through one of 5 or six resistances,​ and back out to drive motor. 
 +8/5/2017 - Bobbin winding does work, though the lever needs to be lifted by hand when doing so. (only with Singer-style bobbins. Necchi(?​)-style bobbins seem to hold correctly... 
 +8/08/2017 - Laying a zigzag stitch was accomplished! Also printed out some threading instructions (very useful!)
