out of retirement

my Janome has had to go to the machine doctors as the belt is slipping and a good service is also required so I have had to drag this one out of retirement. This was my first electric sewing machine purchased with a small salary bonus in the early eighties. Until then I had been using a hand operated singer that had belonged to my grandmother.
This machine saw me through shortening and patching jeans to learning free machine embroidery for C&G finally being replaced around 8 years ago. I had thought that it no longer worked and that was why I abandoned it ( I'm sure it didn't work) but with a few minor adjustments it's buzzing away.
