    I saw a Phaff I cannot think of how to spell it a sewing machine. Well any way I saw a portabble one and I didn't buy it and I am wondering if you think it is a good buy. It sure looked pretty all black. I am going back tomorrow and see if it is still in the same place, but I am wondering if that is like the same as buying a Singer ( which I know how to spell)!

    Pfaff is an excellent brand of sewing machine. I have 2 and the only thing I have ever done to them was regular maintainence. You won't go wrong if you purchase one. :thumbup:

    An older black one probably has all metal gears like the Singers. Also, check to see if it has the 'walking foot' installed. It is a small black bar that comes down behind the foot.

    Vintage Pfaffs are definitely collectible machines, just like Singers and Berninas!
