But after doing research on the internet and thinking about it overnight, I went and forked over the $9.50 for the Touch-Tronic.
I arrived home with it and started to test it out. It actually is a very well running machine. I know from my research it is one of the first electronic sewing machines. Also it might be long-lived with no problems or problematic. Growing up in the seventies and eighties, I have always been intrigued by electronic devices, especially the earlier ones like this. I think this was made between 75 and 77 in The USA.
I sewed quite a few test stitches with it and it sews wonderfully. It has some interesting decorative stitches.
Now my problem is what to do with so many sewing machines. I guess I'll just use what ever machine strikes my fancy for a certain project.
Yes, I was hesitant to blog about this machine because of the purists out there. But after reading Male Pattern Boldness last week, I decided to take Peter's advice and be truthful and blog about what ever I want. Since I started this blog as a diary for myself and maybe for my family to see, I think it is great I have people interested in what I am doing, also a little scary.
