    Question Heard of stretching machines?

    I was just browsing ebay and read about this machine on sale which had been "stretched". It is a regular machine, but stretched to give a 18 inch throat.

    Sounds interesing. Anyone done it before? It is not cheap though.

    Not cheap but cheaper than a new machine. If you want one done, you need to decide, I understand the waiting lists are kind of long.

    I am wondering what gives? I mean when you stretch a machine, do you put additional strain on the drive shaft system? I am no mechanical enginner, just thinking aloud.

    I love my stretched Singer 201. It's a WOW machine that I bought used for $800. A steal of a deal with a 12 foot table. Love it!Name:  100_3806.JPG
