 I would like to share a tip that a repairman showed me about 40 years ago!  Put a big tomato juice can behind the machine and it's the perfect height to hold your machine when you tip it over!  A great tute btw, this is why these older machines keep going and going and going!

Hey there! I wonder if we know eachother in 'real life'. I lived in Newcastle my entire life, up until 3 years ago, and I went to Placer High. We always recommend Auburn Sew n Vac. Joseph and Julie, and their son, have maintained our machines for years and years, and they always do a good job. If you go there, be sure to tell them that Hannah from The Tin Thimble (the sewing & fiber arts business my family and I own in Loomis) recommended you!

That's a fantastic tip! I've never heard this before but I will definitely use it. Thanks so much for sharing.
