    Joe that machine was pathetic looking in the ad - I figured I would try for it - the motor wiring was shot and the case broken up but I really like the machine. Mostly cleaned up real nice - kind of an ugly spot on the surface though.

    Miriam,

    Those are the ones I really like to get. I can fix 'em up and make 'em run nice again. Zoom zoom.

    Joe - this one was a thrill - It has cute decals, the finish cleaned up nice, the little clovers are so cute and it turns like it was meant to sew. I need to adjust the tension then I think it will be good. We put a different motor on it.

    Joe I have a box of old motors for you to fool with.

    I am going to re-home a Janome, a Rotary, and a Singer 603E with all the accessories.

    I will be keeping the machines in my signature.

    I'll take the box of motors. I do like to mess with them.

    Tensions are one of my big problems. Sometimes the machines just fall into place and they sew anything, with any thread like nobodies business. Other times I have to fiddle with the tension as I sew with them to get them right. Eventually I do then they work good. I got a couple like that I'm fiddling with right now.

    Joe, sometimes the only thing you can do with a tension is take it apart, clean it and put it back together.

    Yep, and after that sometimes they still require tinkering before they decide to cooperate.
