Well, I have been wanting a Jones for a while now and all of a sudden I have a chance to get two! One is a HC. I go see it today. The guy said it is missing the knob that raises and lowers the foot. The case looks pretty rough too in the photos. The other one is a treadle that has been in this family forever. They are down sizing and someone told them about me so they are holding the treadle for me! WOW! I pretty much quit acquiring machines because I am running out of room, but I just may have to get both of these Jones' machines! Oh my, I keep telling myself to stop! I have all the machines I could ever use and then some! I don't need any more!
