    I agree. If you like paper piecing you will love a vintage machine.
    The Singer 15-91 and 301 came to my mind too. These are straight stich though a 401 or rocketeer with cams will give you more options.

    I am not interested in " vintage". I Have a 1953 Singer that i have never used. It belonged to my late aunt. It is a decoration for me. I love my Janome 9700 tho. I should probably use that Singer sometime.

    Pattern review is great!

    I agree with you. You couldn't pay me to sew on a vintage machine! I had a 1958 Montgomery Wards machine and you couldn't sew a straight quarter inch seam on that machine to save your life. Of course it didn't have such nice things as needle up/down and programable stitches either. I love my modern machines.
