    She looks very nice for being a commercial sewing machine. Have you done a test drive?
    Sweet Caroline

    Indeed yes Caroline. Very fast was the first thing I noticed, but the controller does very slow just as well.

    It's strange, a few weeks ago industrials were going for a minimum of $300 here. The last few weeks I've paid $6.25 for a 206K10, $100 for the 96K49 and just bought another 96K head for $20! The folk who buy these must still be on holidays. There's a 31K for $80 negotiable too! Good time to buy them: Wish I had a warehouse

    Easier to acquire than to get rid of a sewing machine - well at least around here.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Buy when the prices are low,..... sell when the prices are high. Didn't I learn that in my econ class years ago? I believe it sounds easier than it actually is.
