I was looking some Elna Grasshoppers but was not to certain. Then i tried out a Singer Slant-o-matic 500 model. It sews really nice. I also picked up a Brother Festival 451. It reminds me of the plastic flamingos. It is all metal, sews great straight and zigzag stitches. It will go to my daughter in law who wants to learn to sew.
Here are some pictures:
