    New babies

    Going to pick these two new additions to the herd tomorrow. Has anyone ever heard of a Bond machine? I figure it's another 15 clone, but we share the same birth year, so it was calling me and the poor little Spartan just looks lonely!

    Me too. It reminds me of an old milkshake machine.

    Did I pay too much? $110 for both? DH thinks I spend waaaay too much money on machines, but I can't help it!

    my criteria for "is it too much?" is "do i love looking at it? do i have enough $$ to buy it?" you could blow $110 on a lot of things that (i would think) might not give you as much pleasure as those machines. one night in a hotel, for example.

    Me too! I would be happy to have a Spartan. I've never seen a Bond but it looks like a fun machine to own. I would want to have both too.

    Great machines! Are you going to name the Bond machine James?

    Ditto. You gotta name the Bond machine James. The Bond is not a Singer 15 clone. It is likely a Brother or Necchi clone of some sort. As far a how much to pay that is up to you. You have made the seller and yourself happy. That is what counts.
