    I'm sorry if you were misled by someone else regarding this machine in the first place but I thought I would at least give you the opportunity to be aware of the truth.

    I just seen a FEATHERWEIGHT on a flash back of the old movie, "Kramer vs. Kramer". Never watched that movie, but looks like the scene when he is packing up her stuff to send to her maybe. Dustin Hoffman reaches in a cubby and grabs a Featherweight. Beautiful one I might add. Bet that machine is worth a bit now.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!
