That's a thought, call to arrange to come see it, but then cancel at the last minute, and then ask -since they pulled it out for you to look at, how about taking pictures of it now . . .

I'm going to bet it's a Rotary. I've seen way more of them in cabinets like this than the VSIII In fact, I've had a hard time finding White VS machines.
LOL! I love that idea! I am sort of curious about the machine, but not curious enough to try to wade though that stuff and do the work they need to do in order to sell something. What if I trip on something and crack my head open? They'd probably leave me there. "Too much work" to get me out...

I may be a rotary. I was just guessing itís a vibrating shuttle since itís in Canada and in the Mountain Time Zone......

....and also, I would imagine that little spiders enjoy riding on a VB shuttle carrier more than on a rotary. Rotaries can make them dizzy and they fall off.......

EEEEP!! *puts all of her VS machines in Kijiji...*

Of course, if they're dizzy and fall off they could end up anywhere....

That’s right!!! And we don’t need any dizzy spiders wobbling around in the sewing area, especially those ones that get nauseated with motion sickness.

Macybaby and I will place our wagers and wait until you get back with the results.

Oh...and watch out for that spider. He thinks that’s his machine now....

I've always liked these better than the more ornate White Family Rotaries we see everywhere:

Nice looking machine and I think a good price given the condition. I don't think that pattern is nearly as common as the ornate ones but if you put them side by side I would probably reach for the one with the fancier decals.

Well, you're just a fancy guy.

Seriously, it is in great shape and the table's nice, too. The price is good and probably negotiable. Hmmm.

So, just so I know,... what does Spider vomit look like.... no,.. on second thought, I'm better off thinking it's something else.

Yeah, talk about your mixed messages... you know I'm not going to see something that ol' Spidey is going to jump out at me from, right?

Here's a pretty machine. Wish I could afford it. They also gave a very informative link about Jones sewing machines.
