Another reason why it wouldn't stitch
I needed to relax with some mindless work today. I chose to clean this machine. There is a new definition of grime in my book. I was able to get the machine turning nicely. I sprayed tri flow every where I could. No motor to worry about and the cosmetics are shot so now I am focused on getting it stitching.
Then I had a call from a friend who has a friend who needs a machine. So I serviced an eBay purchase a nice little Kenmore 12 stitch
I think this may be a keeper. I am not sure why. I have the Keatherweight for classes should I need to haul a zz machine. But I may want to build an inventory of my own machines, should I ever teach classes myself.
Or maybe I will just sell it.
The machine is very clean inside. Too bad the seller did such a poor job packing it. The machine sustained only minor damage to the extension table and spool pins. The case, on the other hand was significantly damaged.
I had emailed him/her and asked that the machine be wrapped in bubble wrap inside the case as well as outside. Stupid me. The machine arrived in a box with one sheet of bubble wrap next to the cased up machine. It wasn't even enough to wrap all the way around the machine. Fortunately I had some money refunded so that helped. Stupid idiot moron.
