    My ds has been begging my dh to take apart my old broken down Brother CS6000i. They decided today would be the day. Here are some pictures of them together, with pictures of the inside too.

    No, it's dead. The motor was out. I only paid $149 for it. I've since gotten a new Brother.

    Looks awful inside. Very... blech. Not cool like old machines. Wish I hadn't seen this. I have a Brother HS 2000, gonna try to forget what I saw.
