Thanks Penlowe you rock! Im sorry it took a bit for me to reply I had to go out of town (my dad in a motorcycle accident...seems like he'll pull through but will be looooong recovery). It's nice to fire up my computer and feel non-hospitaly and normalish for a minute.  Will do the test as soon as I get a mo.

thank you S. D. ! The gear driven thing is a big plus for me...I went yesterday to look at a machine at a local antiques store (I know, not the best way to get a deal) because he said it was an "art deco" style...I got excited...but turns out he was talking about the cabinet. It turned out to be an older singer in great shape (me the moron thought I could remember the model # later and recognize it) I think it was maybe the 15-90) my son was being fussy and I was so disappointed that it wasn't the rocketeer....anyway it was in really good shape and had lots of feet, including this funky one called the hemstitcher and picot edger for lockstitchers. Now I am thinking maybe I should have taken a better look  (though the 75 bucks he is asking is really more than I should spend)....he is supposed to look on it for the model # and call me back.

It has the underneath kind...it is a really nice machine, here is a picture


sorry they're sideways i am feeling like a genius just because i got them onto craftster.
anyway, the various bobbins that I have, have gotten all mixed up and they seemed to be correct but as I said there have been tangles (and tangles and the tension seems off)...so I am hoping the trouble really has just been the bobbin. Maybe I haven't been appreciating my New home (really Janome right?...anyone). I am also a pretty new sewer so I haven't used any of them for long.

I am really starting to think I want a slant-o-matic...though I am confused are they all Rocketeers and "the best sewing machine ever made"? or is that just the 503? model...what do you think....

well, the new home doesnt like bulk... so french seams on a baby sling for example are a pain....the singer is okay but really basic and a bit pissy...and the bro....well you know....and the older ones were recently serviced....I also like seeing what people like to use and why...thanks penlowe you are a sewing machine goddess....you really know your stuff( i read posts till my eyes were crossing over the weekend).....xangomommy that blue one is ADORABLE!
