    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Never estimate the power of an old woman with a sledge hammer:

    Wish you had been around when I unveiled the "roach-infested" machine and cabinet! A couple of good whacks and they would have scattered to the next county.

    Don't you feel so much better???

    Well since you aren't right next door maybe you need a tutorial so you can do it yourself. Maybe other people have some ideas. I like the 400 story building idea. Sledge hammer is what came to my mind first. I DO have another T&S in the garage... What should I do with that one???

    LOL, that looks like you got rid of months of pent up anger and stress right there.

    Were I still in AZ I would have fixed it by shooting it.

    I have a T&S in the garage too. It needs the same treatment.

    Love your ad!! Love the tutorial. I was thinking 20 gauge shotgun or a 30-06 rifle ought to take care of the T&S.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
