Had the opportunity to purchase 2nd hand Janome DECORE COMPUTER DC3050 for $200. with a missing power cord. Is this a good deal. I do not know this person...it was an add in local add.

Doesn't seem like a bad deal, assuming the power cable and foot controller cable are separate, and that it WORKS. It's discontinued, but new ones seem to sell for $450+. You can get a replacement power cable at Radio Shack or, commonly, in the cable bins at thrift stores. I'd test it (take along a power cable), or get a return guarantee against it not working, before I bought, though.

THat is the machine I just replaced and it did just a wonderful job for me. It still works great I just pulled it out my DD to come mend some clothing this weekend. I would recomend this machine. As far as price I saw these going for $200 in like new condition no cord would be a worry for me I would look at what I could buy everywhere before I took this onc.

Thanks so much.....I decided to go for a new machine because I like the idea of having a warranty and the support the store will give if I have problems with my new machine.

Recently bought this machine second hand and trying to find presser feet. What kind fit the DC3050?

Hi mc,
If you go to the Janome website and look up your machine all of the available feet and accessories are listed there.
