    Good therapy! I have no pics, but I did the same thing with Hubby's old recliner. Very old and he kept welding it back together. Finally agreed to use DM's after she died. Could not find a way to get rid of it.............Then I solved the problem as you did! Boy, those recliners are harder to to smash than a machine! Ended up with sledge hammer, pry bar, screw drivers, and wrenches. Still Very Satisfying! LOL

    Haaaahaa. That's the best Craigslist ad! Miriam, you are so funny. In my opinion, ALL T&S should be trashed...go to.

    LOL! I picked up one in a cabinet at SA for $15. Someone attempted to "fix" it. The cost of the missing parts are more than the machine's worth. I'm considering taking it apart as a learning experience. I may resort your solution if it becomes too frustrating.

    Miriam, I had a good laugh over that tonight. We all need to vent sometimes and that seems to be the best way, so no one gets hurt. Loved your CL ad also, wonder how many dummies will want it.

    Old people shouldn't get carried away - I hurt all over this morning... and DH probably does too, he did most of the damage. It sure took my mind off things for a while...

    I love this: Sometimes when something is stuck and even DH can't get it loose, I tell him the same thing "Never underestimate the power of an old woman" and then I attack it. It always works !!

    Hope you feel better Miriam, I will have to try your stress relieving method sometime. Right now all I've got is boxed refrigerator wine for a totally stressed out day, lol, it will do for now.

    The only thing you can really do about stress is to change your attitude. BUT sometimes hitting something feels mighty good until the attitude changes...

    I hope you get some fun responses. The next ad you place should be full of typos and grammar mistakes (to be legit). :>

    Change attitude reminds me of my mother saying, "When I'm having difficulty getting along, I know it's me and my attitude and I change it." I try to live by it. Sometimes not very well. Sorry, I'll get back on topic. Your've poking fun at the ads and your "relief of stress" is helping relieve my stress. Thank You!

    I have three touch & sew machines -- love them. Had one since it was new. Also have another 600e that was about to be tossed -- fixed it, but am going to use it for parts when it becomes necessary. They are what I turn to when the others are giving me attitude!

    I have one I really like, too - not a thing wrong with it. If those have issues they are a PITB to repair...
