    151? If I had more room.......

    I've been using my 1956 201 for almost two years with a broken presser foot lever. Got this off ebay and it took a whole 5 minutes to change. That included adjusting the lamp so I could see it. Even the part numbers match.

    I wonder how many cabinets we have in the living room over there... Oh it is not where we live... I doubt if he counted those, too.

    If a 100 is good, 200 is better. Some folks just like to count. My DH thinks I have too many (21) but all of them are being returned to service. Sometimes that is just cleaning and oiling, sometimes a new cord, and the parts are out there. Besides they are such fun to sew on.

    I might be in the doghouse yet. I found a Necchi BU in a cabinet that is in less than perfect condition but the machine has all of the accessories and is complete and in great condition. It was left in a building and recovered by the salvage company. I got it from them along with the Minnesota H. They were in different structures. Where are these structures???

    This is the cabinet picture I got from the seller. It went into hiding, I mean storage, before my wife could see, I mean, I could get a good picture of, the cabinet. The chair slides into it and looks like a parlor cabinet or small chest of drawers when it is all put away. It really needs to be refinished though. Not unlike me if my wife finds my hiding place.

    Grant, perhaps building a very, very LARGE dog house for your babies and you would solve your problem. You could call it a man cave.
