    Ok. That machine IS considered a "featherweight" I wondered that too - it's an industrial machine made from aluminum so was considered a 'featherweight' I have one - while it is not light weight it is lighter than it would be if it was made out of cast iron.

    The one I have is a 241 - it is very heavy but I'm sure if it was iron it would be worse - it was an early aluminum machine.

    NOPE you are so wrong. If they can't pay the electric bill they should absolutely keep that machine.
