    That one is well worth it and I would not argue over the price. It even has the "Tree of Life" carvings in the lid! That would be a very nice machine to own.

    You should ask about his other machines that he mentions while you are at it.

    Oh Charlee my BIL is going to get it for me today and send it up here in the mail. The decals are lacking but the MOP is there and that is all that matters to me. It works and has some extras with it like a few old rusted needles and a bobbin or two, the guy asked me if I wanted them or should he toss them in the trash. :shock: I told him I didnt care how rusted they were I needed them!

    But I will post photos as soon as it hits my doorstep!

    They all take a class 15 bobbin, yes. However....my FW also takes a class 15, but I can't use the bobbins from my FW in my 15-91 for some reason....
    That is because the FW bobbins aren't the same as a 15 series bobbins, two different shapes.

    It is in much better shape than my Minnesota B and I do have the needles...
