    This looks like a leftie to me, or are my eyes deceiving me?

    http://jxn.craigslist.org/atq/2845441001.html If it isn't, why do people post their machines from the back and not take pictures of the fronts. It is like posting the back of a quilt for sale, not the front and wonder why they don't sell. Never seen that done, but woud like to see other side of machine.

    It sure LOOKS like a leftie! I wonder if he mirrored the picture for some reason?

    Looks to be a mirror behind it. Not on this side though.

    It's the front of the machine, mirror imaged....look closely at the name on the machine, it's reversed.

    Evidently there are a FEW left handed machines out there, I've heard about them, but for the most part, at the time these machines were made, lefties were forced to use their right hands....being left handed was considered to be handicapped.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    The name on it is backwards, so the photo is reversed or whatever.

    It is a Minnesota. The picture is reversed.

    A left-handed machine...something I have wondered about, but after using "righty" machines for almost 50 years it would be confusing! Oh well, we lefties are creative enough to overcome having to do everything "backwards" lol.
