I found an industrial sewing machine with a very low price. The seller tells me that it is a DURKOPP Adler and goes on giving me photos, model no as well as a serial number.

Just quick step by step instruction on how to post photos here using photobucket.
Photobucket is FREE to use. So, I set up an account with them to be able to post photos here on the QB. (I do not know how to resize photos on my computer, YET.)
Step 1, if you click on your name, Click user settings.
Step 2, you will see all your personal Information. Look up and click on the tab that says Albums.
Step 3, scroll down toward the bottom

So, 20 squares ( 4 across X 5 down) would make it 32" x 40" and takes 20 (10") squares... In a yard of fabric (36" X 42") you can cut 12 (10") squares (3 across X 4 ) so,
