    might need to drown both the Singer and the seller in a bucket of diet Cola.

    They aren't that far out of touch - well maybe by 10 years - back then you paid a lot more for one.

    She's been in Florida. Welcome back Miriam, we've noticed your absence.
    That Singer 73 is a serious machine indeed. Used to sew leather suitcases, apparently.

    I was vacationing in the arctic Florida sunshine weather - in other words - we went camping.

    I actually like that stuff.

    Pretty neat.

    especially if the machine was too far gone to save.

    hard to argue these aren't neat:







    It's not like there isn't enough old machines that are past being usable out there. I think it's a neat use of something that would have ended up in a landfill...
