    I can take it all apart, clean and oil it and put it back together. It sews like a dream.

    Never heard of it - is it a new model or an older one! Cute as it can be though!

    It is a really old one. I bought it about 6 years ago, from an indiviual. When I had to take over and have the bobbin rewinder fixed, they said I got a real steal. But I had already decided that. It will out sew my newer bernina, on heavy sewing.

    I have one that looks very similar though mine is a "Sport 801".
    She is a real treasure. I bought her new 25 years ago new and she is my only machine and does everything. FMQ is a bit of a problem though as the throat is rather short.
    Have fun with your little Bernina

    Is that an 807 or an 817? I have the 817 and love it.

    I have one just like it and love it. It sits right next to my 830 which I also love. They both sit under my vintage Singer which is next to my White treadle. Need to really add a featherweight :)

    It is an 807 model. I would like to find out how old it is. So if anyone knows, please let me know. Thanks

    Do you have the owners manual for it? If not here it is link to it. http://www.alikati.com/bernina_minim...817_manual.pdf

    I have read around the net about these and seems to be they are some where between 30 and 40 years old.
