Hi guys,

Well I posted before about my singer talenr having tension issues- turns out that the needle shaft was also bent up on the inside  Shocked.

The new machine (new being the operative word) I have is still a singer, but it is a Singer 185k and I love this machine so much already. I went into a sewing machine dealership yesterday and gave the gentleman my list 'needs to sew thick fabrics, metal, able to cope with a lot of use, within my budget of 100-200 max' and he asked if I would mind second hand. Well when he bought this machine out and I played with it, oh my it is so smooth and easy to use compared to the talent. It is only a straight stitch but it's brilliant.

My particular little machine is 55 years old and was much loved by the previous owner, still in fantastic condition with the original feet with the original box and hard case.

Sorry for the ramblings I am just so happy with this tank of a machine  Cheesy
