The sewing machine repair shop in Cincinnati would rebuild the motor every 6 months (when the warranty ran out) finally I had to give up on it and learn to do repairs. That was a failure for me.... I guess it is how we all learn - fail on some win on some. Even Ray White gave up on my old Elna - he said it had seen a LOT of use - he had that right.

    Well either way - I AM A HAPPY CAMPER! I love my vintage Pfaffs! I have become addicted to Pfaffs! Thank you so much for finding the machines! I just hope this doesn't put stars in your eyes and you start asking prices I can't afford!

    It appears to be a 15, but I think you are right - they need the money to pay the light bill!

    I was looking through the ads on my local Craig's List and came upon this jewel(NOT!) You'll notice that the drawer sets aren't exactly straight anymore, also rust and silvered missing decals. It can be yours for a mere $600!! The seller claims that its a White Rotary, when in fact its a White VS.
