We saw a vertical feed machine for the first time today. Cool action! The finish on the machine seemed very thick and it was pebbled/alligatored almost to the point of reminding me of a crinkle finish, but the dacls were almost completely intact. The cabinet was in pretty nice shape.
This one didn't have a shuttle or bobbins. How easy are they to get? What sorts of unique problems should I look out for when checking it out? What sorts of attachments are out there for it? It basically had nothing beyond the machine and cabinet.
