    Sorry- I meant in general the machine seems too small for the elegant irons. I have 2 of them.

    I've actually got a set of irons for this machine in stunning condition, we've been looking for a reasonably priced head.

    [QUOTE=grant15clone;6095571]$2976??? Where did they come up with THAT number??? ...Wow, just wow.

    I second those wow's. You can see the conversation between two doofuses:

    "Let's say they was gonna pay us $2345?"

    "Nah bro, you can't put the numbers all together like that. Mix 'em up a bit more..."

    "Okay. $2976"

    Okay. . . This brainiac thinks it is a positive selling point that he completely stripped the paint and decals off the machine and put a coat of poly on the table. http://annarbor.craigslist.org/for/3843398033.html

    That poor machine looks sew sad looking like that. Besides stripping the machine, he must have been "huffing" the paint stripper to come up with that price.

    LOL! There are a lot of those photos lately. I think it has to do with phones that "auto rotate" the pictures to view them, but craigslist, etc having websites that don't know to rotate them. That's what happens when I post pics from my iPhone (if I take the pic "upside down" from what the phone thinks I should have), if I don't transfer them to my computer and "Adjust" first. You'd think if it's smart enough to auto rotate it, it would be smart enough to not care which direction I held the camera in, but no.

    *head slap* it's a non-working Stylist 457 $100. (At least the "bobbin spinner" isn't working, possibly more...)
