Well guys, picked up my Consew 225 from the repairman. He told me it sews like a dream now.....to the tune of 389.00 which included rebuilding the control box on the motor. The outside was cleaned up and looked nice but when I opened the door on the left of the machine, it looked like it had not been touched. I would have at least blown the carpet fabric remnants out. Looked on the back of the machine, under the lip portion and it still had carpet residue up in the crack. It was used to sew floor mats in a former life. Live and learn I guess. I did buy 4 packs of 10 needles in an assortment of sizes, two spools of thread and two boxes of pre-wound bobbins. Ready to give it a try. I appreciate your help and look forward to more schooling from the forum. Steve
