Yup, my girlfriend just bought a sewing machine from 1948, largely considered to be the rolls roys of sewing machines, it's is made to last generations, all steel parts, i look at it from both a mecanical engineers eye and an artists and it is fantastic. Nothing sold today is made like that...today everything you buy is a scam it seems...dont get me started on cell phones.
