Now, if any of those Combo units are pre 1900 and you would be interested in a trade for the Pfaff Convertible.....

I turned my Spartan into a handcrank, it's kinda portable.

I've heard of 306's being turned into handcranks for a zigzag.

I took the motor off on an aluminium 201 and added a hand crank. It's much lighter than my heavy 201 and I find it fairly easy to carry. I would say this could be used as a 'portable' machine.

Thank you for sharing the pics. I'm sure this is a stupid question, but do all of them sew? I would imagine they do..
And do you have a favorite as far as the sewing goes?

I would too. The aluminium 201K is lighter than a cast iron 99K

Yes they do, All of the machines in my collection sew (or else!) my favorite is the one in the upper left. The Jones Serpentine. I do a LOT of sewing on that one.

I have a Singer 201K hand crank and love it. It is heavy, but worth it. I also have a 201K aluminum hand crank. I take that one to retreats, because it is a little lighter. I bought a black case for it on ebay. I put it on a wheeled luggage carrier, and I'm good to go. I wouldn't give up my 201 hand cranks for anything.
