    You did well in your purchases. I think people must donate all their great machines "up north" before they move to Florida. I never see such good stuff in our GW or Salvation Army stores. The only good ones I have found have been on Craig's list and they are either a real mess or beauties that go in minutes like the FW that was about $80 that I missed.

    You know I think it's my tendency to be cheap and persistence. I'll go a really long time without seeing anything good or the good thing is reasonbly priced but still out of my stay at home Mom on one income budget. We seem to have both extremes here...people have common easy to find machines that are worth maybe $50 in great condition and want hundreds of dollars for them or they have really amazing machines that they toss on the side of the road. Machine collectors are starting to catch on here as it's getting harder and harder to get a good deal...but I keep trying because I haven't the money to splurge! The only machines I did pay top dollar for are my featherweights, but now that I know how to refurbish them myself to some extent I'll never pay top dollar again.

    Hi PPQ,

    I have a Touch & Sew machine in a cabinet. Here is a pic too.I've had it for 30 years, bought secondhand.Name:  Touch & Sew in cabinet.jpg
Views: 81
Size:  40.9 KB Four years ago it went 'on the blink' and I was ready to scrap it but the lovely Singer Man a few miles up the road told me it was too good to scrap and that I ought to get it repaired. It needed a new bobbin mechanism and a new gear (common problems). It now purrs like a kitten and makes me feel great when I sew on it. I believe it dates from 1969. It's a slant needle machine with a self-winding bobbin. It needs a knack but once you've mastered it, it's fab. I love it.
