Hmm, why did I by a 30" throat sewing machine? Can't Post

Just bought a 144A305 30" throat walking foot sewing machine.Shocked Now I need an engine hoist to move it.Crazy Not sure why except the price was about 1/5 what it should have been. And a bigger basement!Unsure

Now all I have to do is find torn circus tents.Angelic

Now you can stitch on any part of a rig without opening the reserve container. Just feed the whole rig through the throat. Good job.

Show us a picture of it instaled in your shop. No envy till you find a place to put it. That's the hard part. I've got one on a beauty of an 8 foot table but I can't find a place to put it.

An interesting aspect of skydiving I had absolutely 0 idea existed before I started jumping this winter.

Male obsession with sewing machines.

I think Home-EC teachers everywhere coulda seen such better male attendance if they had marketed it right.

How much does the thing weigh???

That pic doesn't make it look that big but scale is always hard to determine in those kind of pictures.

Seriously! I didn't see that one until it was too late. I'm limiting myself to the one right now...OK, two, but if I had the room I'd have a whole floor of them. There is a part of me that REALLY wants a harness machine but I don't really want to do much harness work. I just want to be able to.
