    Well...it sure is a clean machine! I think that Mark is onto something. Maybe it was used to make, or reinforce the toes of socks, und das is zer gut. (That's all I can remember from my high school German class...LOL)

    My New Bernina...A Long Awaited Addition

    I've been wanting an old Bernina forever and finally picked one up. I love the stitch regulator and the oversized light. I paid a little more than I usually do for a machine, but it came with the case and the accessories...and it's green. I had to have it.

    I think I have to have one, also. What model number should I look for?

    Congrats on your new Bernina! I'd want one too. That's a very cool stitch regulator.

    Ron,

    I don't know all of the model numbers for the old Bernina's. I think that this one is a 130. I know that the 117s are highly sought after and there are earlier models. I don't think they did that fancy stitch regulator after the 1960s and most were from around the 30s.

    Update: OK, I wasn't going to vent. Really, I wasn't. I even took a full day and lost myself in trying to play my violin to distract myself. The long awaited Bernina arrived last night. The small, taped together box was soaking wet and falling apart. When I picked up the machine, water literally poured out of it. The base and case are completely smashed, the junction box is in pieces and I only found part of the bobbin case floating in the box. There was no protective padding around the machine, (however, they did pad up the accessories...thanks,) no box within a box, no foam, peanuts or otherwise, no plastic bag to prevent moisture from coming in. All this after I contacted the Ebay seller and kindly directed her to the Ebay guide for packing sewing machines and told her how common it was for machines to arrive damaged. In one ear, out the other. :::sigh::: It's salvageable, but it will take some doing. I'm hoping the motor still runs after all the moisture. The case and plug will have to be rebuilt. I know...I'm preaching to the choir. Thanks for listening. Now, back to sawing on the fiddle.

    Excuse me, my mind was not in the same universe as my fingers. This one is a 117. (130 is a modern machine.) Anyway, the 117 came in green and black, as far as I know.

    Are you talking about the sweet green machine pictured a few posts above? If so, I hope you are filing some sort of a claim, against the seller, with eBay.

    Yes Mark, sad but true. How could someone so blatantly ship such a beautiful item off like that? It's sitting by the stove drying out and every time I walk by it I want to cry. I'm thinking of bathing it in Evaporust as a preventative.

    I emailed the seller, but no response. I will definitely file a claim.

    Cindy,

    Float it in SM oil or Tri-Flow. Don't let the moisture dry on bare surfaces. That will cause rust for sure.
    Use a hair drier on the motor, and oil it to.

    Sorry to hear about the damage. Some sellers just have no business packing heavy objects.

    Thanks Joe,

    It's been a few days since it arrived, but I'll dunk it anyway. It's been sitting a safe proximity to the wood stove in hopes of it slowly drying out. I've also been turning the hand wheel whenever I walk by. It was a little sticky this AM, so I'll squirt some oil around the upper areas too.

    Update: The seller just gave me a 40% refund for the damage done to this machine. It pays to complain sometimes.

    ok, so these are "sorta" quilted.

    I just got this suit of armor back from a happy customer. We made this suit with the idea that it would get him safely through the last years nationals and the Battle of Nations in France(He is on Team USA). We figured we would learn from what worked and didn't and make rev 2. Well that was a little over a year ago and with several local, regional, and national tournaments in this kit, it is finally that time.

    He has managed several hundred full contact combats ( they use the same rules, weapons, and armor that was used in the medieval period) in this suit and last weekend took the first shot that actually left a mark on his body through the armor. (the same person/weapon combo that bruised my friend, took 5 other fighters off the field with the same horizontal blow to the center spine....)

    We are now going to replace the Canvas with leather.

    I took these shorts so folks could get an idea of the OTHER hobby I obsess...

    What does it look like on him?
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    To be honest with you, I don't think it was the shipping company's fault, so I'd rather not say. We had a huge rain storm across the state during the week of delivery. The delivery day, the SM was left at our gate for a couple of hours before we knew about it. Our driver had tried his best by putting it in a plastic bag and knotting the bag tight, but the water had obviously soaked through the box long before the plastic bag was put over it. I think that the lesson learned is that if you're going to ship a SM, or anything else for that matter, it's best to bag it before it goes into the box. Unless, of course, it needs to "breathe."

    Steve, that armor is so interesting! Do you make it from scratch for your clients, or do you find old armor and refurbish it?

    You inspire me! I have one in the garage that might jump to the front of the line for clean up.
