Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I usually stop with my hand on the wheel, but I've never had a problem with loops if I've just let it "coast" to a stop...
I am not suppose to be buying. But I finally got a machine that didn't need any work to use.
Elna Supermatic in good condition. Has most all the feet and 17 decorative stitch disks. Nice to have a machine that can clean and get working in one evening. It is an electric but now I have something that does decorative stitches. It is really a quiet machine too. Just had to oil and adjust the tension. It does have alot of nicks on the front of the pillar. Not sure how that would happen.
Serial number 5753062, I think that means it was a 1955 machine.
NICE Lisa!! I keep my eyes open for a green Elna, but they're few and far between here...
Cute Elna! I've coveted those myself. I've been told to ALWAYS test drive them as they have a rubber wheel inside that will get a flat spot if the machine is unused and left in the same position for a while. I guess this makes them run poorly if the flat spot develops. So...use your Elna! If you don't use it then turn the handwheel every so often when you walk by it.
