    Cathy, Have you ever met Nathan? ....../QUOTE]

    No, I have never met him. I would like to see this Bernina.

    Cathy
    I would too! Looks gorgeous! Wish I had won the lotto, then I could purchase this one.

    ~whimper~ I'd get out the plastic for this one if it wouldn't get me divorced!

    No charging for me, plus I don't have the room. I would have to dig a basement.
    I need to win the Lotto and I need a basement.

    Real helpful, aren't I?
    I'm sure they'd charge more than what I paid for the machine. And I want to do it myself:>

    I found a 15 clone branded MW- probably Montgomery Wards tonight. The machine is in very good condition, but the case is ugly and worn. It's not for sale, but I may write the organization a letter. Is $50 a reasonable offer? There is also a Pfaff from the same time period, but it didn't call to me.

    I'd say it was reasonable...

    Cathy, Have you ever met Nathan? He states only serious buyers. I can't afford his machines, but I'm tempted to contact him just to see all those pretty machines that he is always posting on CLs that never seem to get sold- wonder why.

    whoa!!! Look at all the throat space...drooling here. I have no idea where I'd put it or find the cash to buy it. I guess I'll have to adore it from afar.

Thanks in advance for any and all help. ~ Chris
    Hi,
    The Boye 20's are made for the oldest Vertical Feeds, the machine below my name. Boye 10's will work on everything else except for the New Vertical Feeds which take the 15x1. The MT X 190 work well as a Boye 10 replacement except the shank is round instead of flat so you have to orient the needle. This needle is common and you can get a wide range of sizes. Someone clever "discovered" (not me) this was a good replacement for the expensive Boye 10. I've used it with good results in New High Arms (VF1) and VF2.
    Best of luck
    Jon
