I hate this machine. With a passion. Every time I run out of bobbin thread, or if I want to change the thread, period, it takes a half hour to get going again. I have to clean it, oil it, change the bobbin and the case, turn it on and off three times, spin in counter-clockwise circles, knock on wood. And MAYBE it will work without jamming. Usually not.
It has been maintained. It has been repaired (too many times to count).
Today it decided to eat my fabric, and then jam inside the hole so that I could not get the extension off.
So I threw it across the room.
Pieces went flying. It felt good.
I can do more with a $100 Singer with 5 stitches than I can with an expensive piece of junk that doesn't even give me ONE stitch.
This thing SUCKS.
If you want aggravation in your life, buy one of these.
