I bought a Singer from the 80s maybe off Craigslist for $20 bucks. Works great.

Those Pfaffs are awesome! I think mine is the 130, and I've sewed up to 7 layers of Sunbrella canvas with it. Manufacturers used to put bigger motors on them, and use them commercially, according to my sewing machine guy. I gave $75 for mine, tuned up, about 20 years ago.

The 130s have the same parts as the 138 industrial machines. It's basically the 138 with a smaller motor and a shorter arm.

I picked up a different Pfaff than the one I originally found. In the interim I used this New home which I am planning to give to my sister now. Both work very well and I think either would fill my needs at this point.

Sweet Pfaff! Love the light. I have a New Home too of similar vintage. Good freearm machine. Scored it for $25.
