I don't know why I don't stop buying machines on eBay. I guess I am addicted. BUT I must stop. My most recent experience has convinced me
I love the Vintage Kenmore 158s. The free arms are especially nice. I use my 1760 happily and the free arm comes in handy frequently. So I bought a machine on eBay and it arrived, poorly packed and damaged. I am pretty sure the machine is ok. But the very nice case was cracked on top and I could tell it was a new fracture.
I should know better
