Dodgy wiring - we can fix it

Two Singer Featherweights have arrived at the workshop to be rewired.
They are both clean, nice looking machines, but when you look beneath the surface....
Note the bare wires - sixty year old cable can do this and the outer insulation is dropping blobs of nasty black goo everywhere.
The damaged sockets will have to be replaced as well, luckily one of the owners had a spare socket - the flat pin sockets are rare.
Both of these will have new wires with modern sleeving to make sure they are safe, and the pedals will be rewired as well.
More to follow when I get to work on them.
