You know until I got on this site I didn't know they made chain stitch machine except on sergers. Those are cool looking machines. Got to be more careful when I'm junking.

I don't usually post ads from craigslist - but in this case I can't resist. Do you think those are cobwebs on that machine? Is it really a black machine with a thick layer of dust, or could it be a light colored machine (with a black base???) Creepy. I think I will cross-post it on the thread talking about spiders. I would not have brought that machine into my kitchen for the picture!

You think they would have cleaned it up a bit to sell.
Yes, Creeepy!

Wonder if they are including the cobwebs in the price or if they're extra.

How much time would it have really taken to flick a duster over it? You'd think as a business they'd want to present their stuff in the best possible condition.

Mine looks exactly like the second machine in the second web site only not as good.
BZ Quilting, do you know the age of your machine or how to find that information out?

No I don't know the age of my machine, have never been able to find any information. If you go back to page 150 I posted some pictures of it.

Can you post a picture of the machine and the knob area? I have some extra ones around here somewhere; not sure if they are the right ones, but will look.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give. I originally posted pictures of this machine on page 150 and also added a new one, but here is the wheel.
