    I would love to road trip to Ohio, especially with the garbage weather starting to set in. It's 4000 miles round trip though. That's a long way to go for cardboard.

    Okay, this isn't a giggle or a sewing machine or even vintage, but it's creepy. Sometimes I browse the "free stuff" category. Ever notice how a lot of ads say that the items don't have bed bugs? Well this one admits to having bed bugs.

    You, of course, pay for any parts and postage plus shipping and handling. ~ from the ad. It is a beautiful machine though. Very bright and shiny. Looked again, nice, but not for that price, IMHO.

    It wouldn't be hard to do that warranty - especially at those prices.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    That mis-spelling alone raised my suspicions, but the price doesn't help. Who on Earth would restore a 306?? Bought one yesterday for $23 and it's almost that shiny.

    I like the shop idea. They are a bit grand with the pricing in my opinion.

    I don't know whether this light modification is brilliant or crazy...

    I can remember back in the day we saw little toy cars made in Japan - made out of used orange juice cans. Why not a light?

    I think the can part is smart; I have a berry picker my grandpa made by welding nails to an old tin can, and I like the ingenuity. It looks to me like they might have fitted a regular-size light bulb in there, though, and that seems like a lot of heat very close to my hand.

    No pesky foot or knee controllers with this one. It's operated by brain power. Not much of a sewing surface, though.

    I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it...

    I offer the same warranty on my work but only for 1 year, and my prices are much lower. I actually saw his website when I was putting together my page and used it for my page. Ok, I kind of stole it from him. http://grantgray88.wix.com/sewrestor...our-story/ccno

    Do the drawers pull all the way through or is this set up to be a left handed machine? I'm so confused.

    They are in YELLOW SPRINGS... DUH. They ARE smoking something. They don't know anything about that machine.

    The drawers can be put in backwards or pulled all the way through.
