    Challange - How many problems can you spot on this machine?

    Most of the time when I buy a machine from a CL ad with fuzzy pictures and crappy descriptions, I have gotten very lucky. However, balance must be maintained..... This time it was an almost total loss.

    $30 C'est la vie

    However to make some fun out of an otherwise wasted purchase, see how many issues you can spot in these two pictures we took.

    Looks like a broken hand crank to me but I honestly can't tell.
    Anastasia - I like to sew square things.

    I sent a PM, and have to go to the shop. I'll check back in later.

    Handle missing from handcrank
    Knob missing from Stitch length regulator
    Top tensioner missing back half
    bed is COMPLETELY split into two pieces.
    Needle clamp and screw missing

    (keep in mind, this was advertised as "works".....)

    The connection between the handcrank and the handwheel is "odd" (maybe bad)
    There may be the remains of a 2nd spool pin, but not sure yet. (I will look tonight)

    Well phooey. I must have shut the PC down too quickly after sending the PM that it didn’t get sent. I got 4 out of the 5, but my fifth was a damaged thread takeup lever, and I missed the broken bed.
