chris_quilts, your selectivity about machines is understood. We are just such enablers here. Myself, I am going to spring for a national or eldridge two-spools, if I ever find one within range. But there are few others I would get. There are 4 machines here that are supposed to have been re-homed already, and then my own 6. I am waiting for good weather to supply a place I can work on cabinets - need to do the spa treatment with shellac, etc. I have enough machines and work to do on them for now.
