I'll keep looking for a 15-88. I really want a pretty one with the chrome bits in good shape. I've been looking for 6 months, maybe I'm just a little impatient.

I have looked and looked for a 15-90 for months. For a common machine, they are very scarce in my area and for the few within a 100 miles, very over priced. I only want the machine; I have a...

It's a VX710 with only a straight stitch and a zig zag. It's cleaning up pretty well on the outside and that is also helping the smell. I haven't plugged it up yet.

Dumpster find

When I went to take off the trash today, I saw a sewing machine sitting there. The attendant gave it to me. It's a very nasty Brother free arm. It stinks!! Pics & more info later.
