    Tell him it's for the same reason that he has more than one wrench or more than one screwdriver. They all do different things and each works best to do its own thing.....

    I have 3 machines right now... And I used that argument about the right tool... I can't tell you how many times my husband has quoted..."See how well the job goes when you have the right tools?"

    Man - I love throwing that back at him. :)

    That's what I was going to say. Tell him to just think of it as another tool, or whatever it is that he 'collects'!

    Good for you, hope it's a reasonably priced Featherweight. Please let us know how it turns out.
