    Riccar Thread Injector...a good one?? See Pics

    Ok. I have wanted an injector to start making gear. I finally made attempts at finding a decent injector. I came across a woman who was selling her grandmotherís injector. It is a Riccar Duchess 220 model RZ-204B. Can anyone tell me any info on this unit? The dates they made this model? It runs well. I had it checked out by a knowledgeable person and the feedback on operation was positive. I call her "G.I. Jane". She weighs like 60lbs! Paid $20!

    It looks like a sold machine and you can't beat that price

    There is no info on this machine. Riccar has a website but all it has regarding my machine is the manual. But it shows a sales/repair shop not far from where I live. I will have to call.

    Cool machine dude! Worse case scenario, you scrap the sewing part, and make a belt sander! You really can't lose on that deal!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    The sales/repair shop person was no help. The guy thought it was a german machine. I know for a fact that it is a company from Japan that started selling in the U.S. in the early 60's. That's all I can find so far.

    My ex-wife owns one. She got it in the 70's. Paid bunches for it. Great machine.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    My wife has a Riccar 760 that I'll use it to make my DIY hammock. Seems like a solid machine.
