    I am sad...seller would not ship the hand crank machine.

    found a 1939 hand crank machine on CL and the guy didn't want to pay for shipping. I told him I would cover the shipping. Dang I want a hand crank machine and I want it NOW!! HAHAHAHA

    I know how you feel! When I found one on Craig's list in Sisters for $75, I JUMPED on it!

    Where are you at in Oregon? What's your budget so I can help you look?

    I'll keep my eyes open! I'm in Redmond, so Haines is not "undo-able"!

    Are you really sure you want a hand-crank machine? I found a beautiful one in a thrift shop and it came home with me. Winding the bobbin was an ordeal; but maybe it will be better with some oil and use. Still, it's quite a workout for your cranking arm!

    I wound "one" bobbin on my 99K HC machine. NOT NEVER EVER AGAIN! I use one of my e-machines, a treadle, or the little side winder to wind bobbins for it now. I love sewing on the HC, but forget winding bobbins.

    I find that once the lock is released so that you are just turning the bobbin winder on my handcranks they fly through the loading process... It is certainly not as fast as "e-machines" as it were, but fast enough for me.

    I'm with you on this one Joe. When my partner got a Jones hand crank, I tested it by winding a bobbin (yes Steve, the lock was released), and it was quite a bit of work. When she saw how much work it was, she didn't want the machine any more!

    Winding the bobbin is a real hassle. I have an electric powered 128 and my HC is a 128, hence, the electric one winds the bobbins for me. But, you are correct, winding the bobbin will try an old man's shoulders, but, I love the control a HC gives.
