Subject: RE: MOAB - Mother of All BS [annex]
My 1948 rotary White (it's cast iron and weighs a ton) is my best machine in the house. It only sews straight lines, but it sews them faster and more reliably than the other machines. I have a Domestic that is a White off-brand bought in about 1990 that is slow to start (you have to push the hand wheel to get it started) and it slows down on several layers. Not the case with the 1948 machine. I put away the Domestic machine when I got a White "Jeans Machine" (from about 1980s) from Goodwill for $25 and after adding a bobbin case and presser foot, it's a better machine than my original one.
Since this is MOAB and MOM loves to sew, I thought I'd show you the machine she uses.
