|What fourkid likes about this machine|
This machine was my late Grandmother's. It is a 1950 model and has never been out of the family. After Grandmother could no longer sew it sat in my mom's closet for quite some time. It is really intended for my aunt, but she has yet to retrieve it, so I asked if I could get it fixed up and use it - I hate to have these lovelies just sit and rust away. So the machine went to the shop and got lots of nice grease and oil - new wiring - and has been put to work until Auntie comes and gets it.
This is a great machine. It is powerful and easy to use, but it does take 2nd place to my 1946 Singer 201-2 (also from my Grandmother - but that one is mine). The 201 quietly purrs like a dream - the 15-91 does tend to make a little more of a clunking sound as opposed to a purr.
It is gear driven and therefore can sew anything.
What fourkid does not like about this machine
There is nothing I don't like, but there are a few things different for me.
1. The bobbin does not drop in. You have to put it in sideways. It isn't hard, and after an awkward try or two, it is easy to do - just different.
2. The take-up lever is in an awkward place as well. Again, I don't hate it - it just takes adjusting to it.
3. And the tension spool is also in the back rather than right on the front.
