    New babies

    Going to pick these two new additions to the herd tomorrow. Has anyone ever heard of a Bond machine? I figure it's another 15 clone, but we share the same birth year, so it was calling me and the poor little Spartan just looks lonely!

    Me too. It reminds me of an old milkshake machine.

    Did I pay too much? $110 for both? DH thinks I spend waaaay too much money on machines, but I can't help it!

    my criteria for "is it too much?" is "do i love looking at it? do i have enough $$ to buy it?" you could blow $110 on a lot of things that (i would think) might not give you as much pleasure as those machines. one night in a hotel, for example.

    Me too! I would be happy to have a Spartan. I've never seen a Bond but it looks like a fun machine to own. I would want to have both too.

    Great machines! Are you going to name the Bond machine James?

    Ditto. You gotta name the Bond machine James. The Bond is not a Singer 15 clone. It is likely a Brother or Necchi clone of some sort. As far a how much to pay that is up to you. You have made the seller and yourself happy. That is what counts.

    Both terrific. Is the Spartan FW size? It looks small, but hard to tell. James for the Bond, yes. Helen of Troy was from Sparta, so I'd call that one Helen. Better than all those warriors.

    I've trying to think of names but never thought of James. That is too perfect! James, he is!

    Yeah! When I got these 2, he showed me 2 more that he was working on, so I'm gonna get those, as well. One is a pink Atlas and the other is a baby blue Free Westinghouse. and so the herd continues to grow.....

    Personally I think the Bond machine should be named Sean. Everyone knows he was the Real Bond!

    LOL! My SIL is named Sean (after Sean Connery). When his dad was in Viet Nam, his mom watched all of Sean Connery's movies. When their little son was born, he was Sean. It took her a while to tell his dad why she liked that name so well!

    LOL! I will have to set Helen beside my FW and compare. I'm thinking she might be a tad bigger, but will double check tomorrow!
