    Now here's a restoration story for you...

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I just watched the video. What a craftsman! That is way beyond anything I could ever do or attempt to do. Janome should be very proud of all this effort.

    Makes you wonder how long that machine had been sitting at the bottom of the river.

    No plastic in that machine for sure. Incredible! I love my Janome.

    That's what you call a real "Stripper". I am surprised that he was able to put every spring and screw back in the right place. I wonder if anyone from Janome has seen this video. Makes me also wonder if he plans to use the machine himself or sell it What a fantastic job of restoration. Thanks for sharing.

    That is seriously impressive! I could never be that thorough. And he remembered where every little screw went!

    Taking lots of photos as the parts come off for reference when reassembling! (At least that's what I would have done.)
