    Save yourself some $$. You can replace the drive wheel yourself. It is held onto the shaft with one set screw. Easy to remove. You will have to measure it to get the right one. The replacements are still available. You can do an Internet search for them. Also check Sew-Classic. I think I saw them there and the cost was under $5.

    A hint for you. Keep something between the motor and drive wheel when it is being stored. That prevents the flat spot on the rubber wheel. I use a folded piece of batting or bubble wrap. If you need to see what I mean I can post a picture of mine.

    I have one of these. Got her at a yard sale for 10.00. She's in a desk type cabinet and came with all attachments, bobbins etc. Just made a mini Christmas tree skirt on her. She runs like a top and stitches are great.
