I just today moved my two 31's into my barn! I am confiscating one stall to set up my 31's for repairing saddle blankets, horse blankets, some tack etc. I have tried using the 31 a couple times, but the thing scared me to death! It takes off racing! I will 'have' to practice and practice with those mean machines or I will end up sewing a finger or something! I love them, though! Oh yeah, both my 31's were given to me along with a bunch of attachments for them and the cabinet - which is electric but looks like a treadle!
I worked on my Hales Crescent's cabinet today - I had already stained and repaired the cabinet - now it is just finishing it! I also worked on my Hitachi cabinet - sanded and stained it! I won't really use the 31's until I can sand and stain their cabinet too!
Oh and I sewed this morning with my Pfaff 260 - which still baffles me! Why don't you try explaining why my machine works fine with one side plugged in and the old knee control, but won't run that way with a more modern foot control?
