In this photo there is another improvement in the Pfaffs: The ability to turn the spool pins down. If you have ever broken a spool pin or bent one by accident, here is the solution to prevent this. It makes for a very tidy way to ready for storage.
This sewing machine did not have any attachments when I got it but that has not proven to be a problem as it takes easy to find low shank zig zag accessories. If you have this model, you may want to get a walking foot and a roller foot to help with heavier work. It took a few tries to get a walking foot that would work well with this machine so I've included a photo so you can save some trouble.
About the stitching and workmanship. That is where this sewing machine shines. It can sew lightweight cotton all the way to outdoor Sunbrella fabric. It does each one equally well. Because it is harder to find a machine that does heavy fabrics well and that is a need I do have for making outdoor things like Cordura nylon packs, I save this special task for this particular machine. With heavy thread, big needle and a small adjustment to the bobbin it sews through with no problem. I have machines with better strait stitches but considering the utility of this, that's not a big deal. When I first got it I had trouble with speed, it seemed to be too fast to do intricate work. With time and more oiling, that has somewhat subsided. Maybe it took too much power to get it going, where now everything is more sensitive. I don't know why but it is easier to use after a few years. Maybe it just likes me better now! In a perfect world this machine would have a slow gear for special work.
