    Poor, poor things!!!
    OK, well, I kinda like the first one...I also thought about combining pieces off of two to get one like that. I lke the black and tan, but not the two toned tan they made with the second one...the colors kind of clash. The first one is NOT a repaint...they just put parts of two together.

    I agree with this. If I lived anywhere north of Sacramento, I'd be driving up Hwy 5 to Redding to get that machine!! And that is a good price compared to others I've seen outside of CA.

    I posted pics of my Davis New VF "Olga" in the Photos thread. Don't laugh when you see her cabinet!! I'm debating what to do about it.

    Janice I could only see the machine? Are you sure the cabinet made it into the photo?

    Is it that orange cabinet?

    I friend offered me a 319 singer in a small cabinet with all the cams and feet for $375, I countered offered $150. What is it worth?
    Phyllis, I am going to try the coffee grounds! That would be a good solution - if it works!

    If you can get the 319 in a cabinet with the cams and feet - and the machine is in good shape - motor and all, I'd pay $100 + for it. I wouldn't pay more than $150, not in the current economy.

    Nancy I am surprised that you do not have any broken bones from being bucked off. You have no padding on you for
    protection. Kathie

    Kathie, you are so funny! I have had plenty of broken bones from horses, just been lucky lately - hence, the clinics to try and advert any more broken bones!

    Candace, I have to admit I am becoming a little fickle with my FW's now that I have started using the 301! The more I use my 301, the more I like it - so much so that I am now going to the 301 instead of my FW's when I need to use an electric machine!

    Wow Cathy, Orangevale is much closer for me! I use to live in Orangevale before we ended up with 10 horses and need more room!
