Lady gave it to me, she was ready to throw it in the dumpster. Tension is a pain, lots of bird's nest in the bobbin area.
It is Singer's idea of a heavy duty home machine that is almost a commercial. It has a heavy duty 1.6 amp motor and will go thru anything you can fit under the presser foot (when it is working right)
It is a gray all metal machine with most of the innards metal as well.
It has 10 stitches and they were quite good. It has a drop in bobbin that is plastic. I am not sure if I can use a metal one, that might be the problem with the tension.
It is heavy but not as heavy as the vintage machines.
The problems with the tension. It will sew OK for a while than I get a bird's nest. Lots of research on the web and apparently the problem can often be resolved with expensive thread. Am not going to any stores this weekend but will hit Joann's on Monday.
Will update after I try the "expensive" thread.
