    SOLD: Sewing Machine

    Free singer 640 Deluxe ZigZag Touch N Sew Sewing Machine. Works great, I just have another one that I use more than this and this is taking up space. Sometimes the pedal sticks for a second but probably just needs some electrical contact cleaner. Must pick up in Pinebluff, NC. You can't beat free.

    I'd love to grab this, and will be passing down I-95 South on late Saturday / early Sunday. I would happily detour around Fayetteville to come pick it up but I don't have my exact schedule yet, and it may be at Oh Dark Thirty -- probably not an hour I should be ringing someone's doorbell.

    Hope it finds a good home, though. It's very generous of you, Bobby!

    Okay, da Frawg jumps!

    Bobby, I'll take it -- if I can pick it up on the 4th without messing up your holiday plans. It looks like I'm 5-1/2 to 6 hours' drive away from you. I'll be driving from Virginia to Florida.

    I'll PM you in the morning... gotta go climb in the hammock for the night.

    Hey Bobby,

    It was great to meet you; sorry I didn't get your final email before leaving home.

    Your instructions back to I-95 worked great, and took me past a Walmart Super Center where 15/501 meets 74 in Laurinburg. Found a few yards of green & olive 1.1 ripstop in their $1.50 pile! There's some more there in other colors (white, grey) if anyone wants to look. Also some in heavier weights (1.7) and a fair amount of the heavier grey that may be DWR. Didn't see any silnylon.

    Think I fixed the pedal, btw. Looked like dust & grease had slightly gummed some key moving parts inside the pedal. I cleaned up the insides and lubricated the moving parts, and it seems to be working okay now.

    Sweet machine, but I have to say that's one weird bobbin! Gotta find some more somewhere.

    Anyway, thanks again for your generosity. I'll put it to good use!

    And Rev, thanks for chiming in when / as you did. You tipped me over the edge to go get it, so I'm in your debt.

    I hope to see some good gear come off of the machine! You're welcome.

    You know I have never been to that Wal-Mart, but I know exactly where you are talking about.

    It was probably alot easier getting back on 95 than it was getting off. Fayetteville has a nasty traffic problem in the afternoons.
