    I kinda like that - I wonder who she was?
    Great history lesson. I think with a bit of bargaining, it would be worth saving. I kind of like that too. Cabinet seems to be in pretty good shape.

    Thank you Sheluma for clearing that up. I thought that it was roughly double when it is 220 (or 221, whatever it takes), but didn't want to mislead anyone if I was wrong.

    Here is a pic of the 2 bobbins and the bobbin case that came with my 115. The one on the left is a wee bit different but works. Regular 15 bobbins will not work as the height of the 115 bobbin is shorter. I think I need one of those caliper thingys for my tool box to take exact measurements.

    Hey Caroline,

    The 115 uses bobbins that share with the 20U, and the Juki TL98E/Q/Other various letters and many of the 9" machines people are putting on the short arm quilting frames, which means they're still very available. The part number is 55623S or 55623, I don't know what the difference is, I've seen them referred to both ways. THe ones I bought for the 115 and use in the Juki are the 55623S ones.

    I know that sewing parts online has them, and Jenny (SC) calls them L Type bobbins and has them as well. SC is a lot cheaper than SPO too.

    I checked, and the bobbin for my older viking is the same size as the 115 -though it has slightly rounded sides. I don't have a 115 up and running to see if it would work, but it fits into the case just fine. The 15 bobbins is quite a bit taller. Good to know all this, as I've ended up with three 115's. Now I've got to sort through my bobbin pile and see how many I have for the 115.

    Thanks for the bobbin info Tammi. That reminded me that I had a whole plastic bobbin box full of bobbins, 21 total, that came with a vintage Kenmore. Dug it out and I had identified the bobbins as older Viking bobbins. Whoo Hooo. Happy Dance here!!!

    Happy to help!

    I'm posting the links to both of the sites I mentioned above. The SPO link shows change up numbers (to cross reference with the Viking part number for instance) as well as an incomplete list of machines that use the bobbin, and the SC link shows a different list of machines supported, including some viking machines. This was part of the fun I went through when I was looking for bobbins for the 115
    http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bob...pk-55623s.aspx
    http://shop.sew-classic.com/Bobbins-...pack-55623.htm

    Interestingly, I've been told the Pfaff 6122 I have here can use L type bobbins, so I wonder if I don't have to be so careful with the Pfaff and Juki Bobbins that often end up side by side and confuse me.

    Hi all,

    Another seller that knows their merchandise. Look at this unusual 15-91 Featherweight in Minneapolis. Is it $600 due to its rarity?

    Getting back to the funny stuff I saw this. Where are the legs on this "Brand New Condition" "Stand"? http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/app/4002798530.html The price makes me cringe. This is 10 min from my house. I might just go over there and start asking questions.

    Very cool machine! Love to have something like it. You're right though, not really needed today. You wouldn't be able to show it off without being judged

    For $400, I think they could have made a nicer photo...

    There needs to be a rule banning people who are too stupid to turn the picture the right way up

    Good old stupid people. They sell because the bobbin area hasn't been cleaned in 30 years and they balled up the tension because it wouldn't sew because the bobbin area is too full of lint. It can be had cheap eventually... LOL

    I don't blame a lot of sellers, I blame the service guys who tell them it's not worth fixing, and they should just by a new machine.

    Some of my best scores have been 70 - 80 year old machines that appear to be almost unused, and they have something jammed up into the bobbin case - once removed, they sew perfectly!

    I've also gotten a few prestine parlor cabinets and machines. I know these weren't cheap when new, so I like to imagine the wealthy husband being talked into buying one for his wife - and then having her look at it and say 'Me? Sew? That is what I pay my seamstress to do for me!" And the machine got put in a room and never used.

    To be fair, the cameras in the phones do this, and if you upload directly from the phone, I'm not sure how you can rotate it, or even know that it needs to be before it uploads. (At least on Kijiji's site anyway)

    That's why I don't upload pics from my phone. That, and I don't think the world needs to see a 3000x2000 or whatever sized picture of the machine. Though I prefer that to the 100x100 pics we often see.

    You can take a picture in 4 different orientations, but only 2 of them are "right" without manipulation, and the phone "hides" the fact that your 50/50 gamble didn't settle in your favor when viewing the images.

    I have seen really impacted bobbin areas on a lot of the machines I get cheap - they don't like to sew when they are that dirty. I've also gotten very nice machines with messed over tensions. I would say those two areas are what I see most often. Many people don't know how to fix either one.
