    And, don't go ordering that 'swing arm' thing you spoke of. I'll get my son to raid one of my cabinets out in DH's shop, and send it to you. Just be sure and PM me your post office address--it is too expensive to use the other shippers here in the country. Mine still works on my cabinet, and has been put through h--- and back. even recently. My friend from NC spent a week with me, and she scrapbooked on that arm of my 201 while I pieced a quilt and finished up another one on my 301; really enjoyed a good friend visit--even for a week. She put together the cutest scrap book you have even seen of my 13-year old GD--she has a GS of the same age, and we compared stories on 'tweens becoming 'teens.

    Cathienut, I hated to see you pass up a 201, no matter the shape. Those potted motors come at a premium, even IF.
    I recently went through a bad spell with this type of hunt. My 201 that I had for sale went haywire on me--the motor quit right in the middle of sewing a seam--just stopped--and wouldn't move another stitch. My son figured it out, but only after we went cyber hunting for one; ($100 or so) and he had to take it apart and take it down to a machinist in town that owed him a favor. They did something like "rewinding" and he did the thorough clean and oil and grease thing and it worked. A friend of mine bought that machine in a 4-legged cabinet for $75. She loves it.
