I've been looking to buy a cheap old reliable sewing machine to make my own lightweight gear, and some heavier weight gear like canvas portage packs. I've found a Kenmore 84 for 30$, I'm going to check it out tomorrow. Has anyone here used one? Or maybe recommend some other kind of sewing machine? I've been searching the forums and it seems like the old singers are good too. I've been looking online at some of those.
