Just last month my lovely old reliable Frister Rossman B Cub 3 -4 gave up on me, corrosion in the bobbin holder and nothing could be done. So it was put to rest but as I give Patchwork lessons and have to handle a large variety of sewing machines I always keep what could come in useful.
On this occasion I kept the Foot controller, £40 replacement cost, the little tools holder and various feet, oh and of course the bulb. On looking through EBay for a replacement machine I came across this
"Frister Rossman cub 4 sewing machine.
Comes with it's carry/storage case.
It's missing the foot pedal and also the storage box which slides into the base of the machine.
It is in a clean well cared for condition but I cannot test it due to not having the pedal/lead so sold as seen."
Naturally I bought it, total cost less than £25, and am awauting delivery, how many of you have had such an incredible coincidence.
