The repairman has yet to pronounce a post-mortem, but my wife's Husqvarna 120 sewing machine seems to have bitten the dust after 33 years. It was a real workhorse, and we're sorry to see it go. We are unimpressed by the potential replacements at the local shop, and was wondering if anyone had any ideas. Our criteria: (1) Must stand up to another 30 years of hard use; (2) Must not be complicated in any way. We need possibly six to eight stitches. (3) Must be completely mechanical. Electronics in sewing machines have a mean time between failure of 6-8 years, violating (1). Strangely enough, price is not a determinant of any of these; we saw a $1500 Bernina that was a complete plastic piece of junk. We'd prefer new, but if they truly don't make 'em like they used to, we'll keep the used route open. Any ideas appreciated; [livejournal.com profile] ilaine_dcmrn and [livejournal.com profile] msfledermaus, what are your thoughts?

Why not buy this one for fifty bucks (assuming no bidding war - currently no bids)?
