High price but maybe they'll come down a bit. Needs the plate and probably other bits. I wonder if this was made prior to the White takeover.
I'm curious about that one, too since I have one - the price is way higher than I would get around here. BUT with out the throat plate they are DREAMING. Mine is pretty nice and very close to the same as any other White as far as I can tell.

Man those white plastics don't age well! That was the first "modern" machine I ever timed. She'd sized an embroidery pattern too small and the way the hook and feed dogs are designed on that machine ( the one I worked on was a CE250, I think)

I THINK what happened is the somehow the stop the machine came to managed to push the entire shaft down (It's a terrible design under there, the whole shaft is "anchored" at the needle side with a piece of metal with a screw in one side - picture a diving board) far enough that the hook stayed in place, but the feed dog gear was rotated 180 degrees and it came to me for "stitching backwards". Somehow the hook timing wasn't off at all, just the feed dogs and so close as to be 100% backwards so it fed in reverse. Stumped me for a bit and intimidated me because of the computerized part, but I finally determined that a timing problem is a timing problem. It's mechanical, not computerized at that point.

Maybe it's a sales technique.

Retr0Bright is the one I know of. Always meant to try it on an old Singer serger. Then I sold the serger. LOL!
Wait, what am I going to do with all that high test peroxide in the garage now!?
