I am sad to say that the machine was not acceptable to me. The handwheel wobbles so badly that the bobbin winder will not work. The castings are rough. The formed metal parts look thin and cheap. The plating looks thin. The decals look cracked. Please give me instructions for shipping it back to Miami. Sam
