    while all 3 are nice, each one is definitely different for sure...not sure what all the stuff is with the first one...but the last one..the sleek shiney black one....she makes my heart flutter!

    I like them all! If I had the time to tinker with them, I'd go for the first one but I most certainly like the last one much more than the other two. Nothing to do with it, just pick it up and start using it if all is working well. Lovely machine, looks like a feather weight too! Best wishes.

    Tough call...it would be between the first one and the last one...and all of them are too spendy for me. The first one simply intrigues me, that last one is pretty tho!!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    If I could have only one of those three it would be the black Adler. It's got panache. Love the black and chrome, all the gadgets and accessories. And ..... it's shiny.

    Not that I ever touch electric machines or would pay a price in three figures, but the last one looks smart. If a friend owned it I might ask for a go on it.

    If it wasn't so pricey, the first Adler. Childhood memories and all that. My aunt Lydia had that machine.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    They each are tempting in their own way... but I say "Follow your fluttering heart Jacquie!"

    I had to drop back in and weigh in again. The first one has a belt on it I would want to see before I bought it but it looks like a really cool machine. The other two look like Japanese 15 clones. Kinda pricy - good machines though.

    1 and 3....mostly because in Aus. very cool vintage is sooooo hard to find and when you do very expensive. No. 1 is industrial, has lots of bits and looks like it stitches beautifully (I'm a sucker for industrial)....no. 3 looks really sleek and well-loved. I love looking at all the machines everyone posts....and the prices (compared to here) seem very reasonable. I shall just continue to observe....and dream. Thanks for taking the time to find and post.

    Most likely #1, German machines are fabulous beasties. #3 because she's just beautiful to look at.
