Can I get a picture or description of how the sewing machine raises and lowers within the cabinet?

Hi there!  I know what this is. I believe this sewing machine is a monitor from Gimbel Company.  I need to fix mine and need a picture of the chain that holds up sewing machine when it pops up.  Where the chain connects is broke on mine.  Mine looks in better shape than yours.  If you give me your email I can send you a picture of mine.  Thanks! Tammy

I have been a collector of antique sewing tools and thimbles for over 30 years. I am also a dealer in this field and sell on eBay under the name -- serengeti2. I am NOT, and I repeat NOT an expert on antique or vintage domestic household sewing machines used for everyday home sewing. I can offer help when it comes to Toy or miniature collectible sewing machines ONLY.
