Thanks for the info on the bobbin size for this machine. "G" is kind of small, as I do aircraft covers and lots of long seams. My other machines have "M" size bobbins and they do last a while before changing. Yes, I agree, machine looks to be in great shape though. He wants close to $500 for it, but has missing parts. So, another downfall. It would be good as a leather machine though, so may consider it for that purpose, but price would have to go down to buy the needed parts for it. I'd probably offer about $300.00 or thereabouts.
Thanks again for the info on the bobbins. By the way, I do have (2) commercial embroidery machines that take "L" size prewound bobbins. Those do fit into my home machines as well.
Thanks again Dan, Love your forum!
