    Jenny Lind? trunk...

    A wooden trunk I just recently finished, customer supplied the hardware, 5-6 oz oil tan contact glued on sealed wood, edges are tacked....goes into a vintage Ford truck in the back of the bed!!!!
  6. I have the identical Adler 105-64 and it is a tank of a machine!!! 10+ years in use, never failed!!! Bobbin and hock is still available, feet's too...using 207 on top and 138 on bottom....runs like a champ...good for heavier thread too....about 5/8" thickness you can do...but stitch length will suffer then....depending what he want for it and working correctly...it's a a GREAT machine!!
  7. Thanks guys for the flowers, and no...my ADLER 105-64 helps my old worn hands in da stitching department...every now and then I do hand stitching....
