It's a 99K. Pretty impressive that it can take that amount of punishment and still work. I'd have thought the hook timing would have suffered but there was no needle breakage. Also, he didn't disengage the bobbin winder so it was also running the whole time.

I'd like to see a modern plastic wonder stand up to the same test.
