HI<br>
i have a toyota 6600 serger with foot pedal and accessories ( a couple extra blades, an extra presser foot?, an extra plate thing to sew on/lay ur fabric on, thread holder things--i know, very technical here) the machine is wrking i just never use it and it's just sitting there. i dont know much about sergers in general and had never even seen one in real life till i got this so never had anyone show me the proper threading/tension etc. it does not have the manual either.<br>
it runs, it cuts and sews/serges<br>
looks like this: <a href="http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals.com/173/PictPage/1922068684.html" target="_blank">http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals....922068684.html</a> (you can also order the manual from here)<br>
I"M asking $140 plus actual shipping (weighs about 22 lbs)<br><br><br>
i will also accept partial trades for<br><b>1.</b> size small very baby aios with birdseye inner in at least good condition (no tears, rips, major staining, holes etc)--i prefer white but will also consider pastel yellow or green or blue (no reds, pinks or purples or bright colours)<br><br><b><br>
2.</b> CHEAP stretchy (not too much) wrap carrier --almost any print/colour ok since it will be for home use/ 'homemade'/hemmed is fine<br><br><b>3.</b> newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 month sleepers in very good/excellent condition..gender neutral (to me that means no pink or purple) and no animal/bug prints/appliques<br><br><br><br>
that's all i can think of at the moment.<br>
lmk by PM please<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

yes i got it "used" --though the lady i got it from said she couldnt didnt have time to ever use it (she had triplets)--not sure if that means she NEVER used it ever, or she didnt use it much besides trying it out<br>
i got it bout a year and a half ago and she said it was serviced/cleaned a couple months b4 that.<br>
to that postal code (i'm in canada too) --these prices include a 75cent charge for insurance (if u want it)<br>
regular parcel is $15.22 (deliv. confirmation is $1 extra)<br>
xpresspost is 16.27 (deliv. confirmation included)<br>
priority courier is 29.33 (deliv. confirmation included)<br><br>

Just trying to figure out how much it would take to get it on the sewing table.<br>
So you havent really used it successfully and she never used it?<br>

but no smoke or flames when you use it eh <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Just tension makes it funny right?<br>
common fiddle more with it to fix it.<br>
I am in need of a 'pick me up' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
lol here's another weird question.<br>
When you use it does it gee-gee-gee on the table or its a pretty hefty gaa-gaa-gaa sound? How much does it weigh?

i suck at adjusting the tension and i just give up<br>
weighs about 22 lbs<br>
as for the sound: i'm pretty sure it's more of a gaa gaa gaa<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> (but even that doesnt sound accurate)<br>
i dont ever remember hearing an 'ee' sound <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">
