Should I rescue this machine? [not OT]

In article ,
The only thing I've ever heard about this type of machine (no personal experience, though) is that its nickname is "Touch & Swear". :S
Yeah -- where *is* everybody?

Everyone around these parts are hunkering down and hiding from the awful cold wind. Bad stuff. I was to OC Thursday and didn't see a bit of sun until I came up over the pass to the high desert. I hate that June gloom whenever it is there.
I would pass on that machine.
Come out, come out where ever the rest of you guys are! Taria

It might be persuaded to plain old straight-stitch and might be okay for a backup for one dark and stormy night when your favorite sm went berserk. I didn't see a power cord and foot control. I have heard the T & S too. Polly

This looks exactly like my new one in 68 ( or sometime around there.) Mine was a slant needle and I loved it as it was my first SM with the fancy stitches and built in buttonhole. The plastic cam finally gave out, and would not pick up the thread. I could have gotten a new SM for what I paid for a repair and 1 yr. warranty. I would suggest you try out the craiglist SM before you buy it! Barbara in SC

Have no comment on the machine, but I've been busy with work, the chesty lurgy and finally this week enjoying spending time planting stuff in the SUNSHINE!

Only if the model number is an early 600 -i.e. before the "620" model (i.e. 600, 603). After that, Singer started using drive belts and plastic gears.

My mom had one back when I was a kid ... she could make it do amazing things. But I've not read good things about them in general.

Howdy! I laugh every time I see this mentioned on the ng, where is everyone? where are the posts? have there been any posts? Well, there are no posts if no one is posting! Glanced at "diabetes on a plate" - sheeze, it's nothing to do with diabetes. See how things don't change? SOME people can't stay on topic, and SOME people can't change the subject line. ;-D
Meanwhile, I'm trying to Finish this huge quilt for a client; it just seems to go on and on... an I want to move on to something else. Soon, please, soon.
Ragmop/Sandy - where-oh-where in north Texas where summer encroaches and I'm already sick of it!
p.s. have never craig-listed, and life goes on...

I have 3 or 4 old machine heads planted out amongst the flowers in the yard here. They are fun. They were all pretty dead when I put them outside though. A mouse made a home of one of them and nearly drove the pooch crazy! taria
Howdy!
Yard art.

Hmm -probably not. Never heard anybody praise this model, and the drop-in bobbin would be a deal-breaker for me anyway. Roberta in D

Not too many posts on FB either -I joined because I thought lots of us were over there. (Hate the way the screen jumps around when a new post shows up, above the bit where I'm trying to read.) Rather be quilting.
And you ought to come on over- we have glorious sunshine and not too hot. Water lilies are blooming, the roses have buds, the peonies have popped open, and my garden is a columbine jungle. Roberta in D

Okay, I decided against this one. I have 4 old Kenmores [1 is going to a co-worker soon], so I really do not need another machine.
Finishing up a baby quilt for my old jr high girlfriend's first grandbaby. Then a couple of PAP [portable art project] items - something I am having fun with.

Will we get to see pics, Ginger? I'm currently "stuck" for a day. I've been working on my coneflower wall quilt from the workshop I took in January, but now I need thread for the background. It's tricky, since the background is a sort of black-ish batik (very subtly shaded with grey) with small brown dots all over it. Which color thread to choose is what's keeping me from working on it today; LQS is closed on Sundays, of course, but it will be open tomorrow. I guess I'll take the quilt there and see what looks best. :)
