Alan: I took a look at the Tacsew on E-Bay and it appears to be a pretty good machine. It's a copy of the Singer 111 which has been around forever and is a good machine. I'm sure it will serve you well. The lift is slightly more than 1/2", so you will have no problem getting Mr. Moose and Mr. Elk under the foot. Large rotary hook would mean that it uses the larger M size bobbins. M bobbins have 52 yards of thread on them, and G bobbins have 31 yards. Be careful to find out if the bobbins load from the front or from the top, right next to the foot. If it loads from the front, it can be a pain in the butt if you need to change bobbins while you are still sewing. You can solve that problem by making sure you have a full bobbin before you start.
