    Some moron with a welder and some junk thought he was making a sculpture. All he did was ruin a decent machine.

    I saw that too. I was wondering about the side projection and wondering if it had some sort of purpose for sewing horse tack?

    I don't think so Nanna...I think it's someone's warped idea of "art"...

    Poor machine. don't know what it is going for, but if it is called modern art I can't afford it!!
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Oh.. I get it.. it's a "WORKHORSE"!!! Now, I would never in a million years do that to a machine, but I do believe that's what that moron was thinking.

    I kept thinking "What???????" I knew that you guys would know! I guess what threw me off was the way it was advertised as a "Horseshoe Singer."

    I wondered about that machine. I couldn't figure it out. Could the horseshoe attachment be a kind of bracket?

    I'd definitely pass on that one. Some idiot welded all kinds of mess on it. Too bad...
