    Of course you could always leave a note saying it had been repaired, changed, etc. and not leave your name. Just so someone would know.

    Who'da thunk it......I am like y'all back there--this is a "sue happy" world anymore. So, if I fix up a sewing machine, I am not going to sell it--I just give 'em away. Then if someone belly-aches about a machine that came from me, I can roll my eyes and shrug.....
    Make every day count for something!

    I hate it when repair shops put one of those stickers on a machine, they're are difficult to remove safely.

    Agreed! Especially when it's on a "valuable" machine, like a featherweight, and usually right on the front, or the bed of the machine. What are they thinking? The 401A I found the sticker in had it inside near the hook gears. You had to remove the drip tray to see it.

    for folks who have had this issue, a head gun if used carefully will soften the glue on those to the point that they will come off easily.

    caution they sometimes use metal labels which can get HOT, so be careful. I use tweezers to lift mine off after heating.

    Practice on UPS labels and such on old shipping boxes, you'll be amazed at how "heat activated" these glues are.

    Goo gone works great.

    Goo Gone can be harsh on decals.
