First let me say that it did not occur to me to take pictures while I had the base removed from the Underwood. It was early in the morning and I was amazed at the amount of dust that was inside of the machine (enough to make a mouse very happy). I was in a state of panic when I discovered that my first efforts to correct problems made things worse.
One good thing about buying from a charity is that the people who profit from the sale deserve to. I have no feelings of being ripped off… (it was a donated item… duh!) the price was cheap… the machine functions… looks good and in time I will learn enough to fix it or have it fixed. So it is win-win. (Gerald)
