    Default White Rotary Model 77? Should I?

    I saw a White Rotary Model 77 at the thrift store yesterday. She was in a cabinet and had the foot controller. I am assuming that she is a 50's model because of the crinkle finish. I passed on her but I have been thinking all night of adding her to the collection because she is so industrial looking. Do you think that my Singer Godzilla would like a companion? Go ahead and enable me a little! If I do get her I have to figure out how to sneak her into the collection without DH noticing.

    I think you should rescue that poor, lonely machine! Just think of her languishing there in the thrift store and the possibility that she could end up in a scrap heap somewhere if no one wants her!

    I haven't figured out yet how to hide the new ones...can't help you there!

    Thanks Charlee. Not only are you a Super Member you are a Super Enabler. Just what I needed. I was really hoping that DH would go elk hunting today so bringing home a new machine would be easier. HMMMM, will have to get creative.

    I did it, purchased the White Rotary. I think I am going to give the crinkle finish machines boy names. They are so masculine looking. Do you think he looks like a Roger?

    It took me awhile but finally figured out the photo problem I was having. Learned a lot today about photo sizes, MS Paint, resizing photos and setting my camera to take smaller photos. Kudos to Patrice and others giving the instruction on how to do it. I could not have done it without them.
