sorry to be a bore and drag it back to the original question.

How does this look?

It's not too far away, and is the sort of price I was thinking of. There's not too much info with it, but based on Husqvarna machines being pretty bomb proof, I figure it can't be too bad.

Crikey, Rae, even I can make sense of most of the Dutch text.

I know nowt abowt sewing machines but the brand is dead solid and the price is right, so long as it's a mains jobbie and not DC - just my tuppence worth.

I didn't get that one in the end, it was a bit too far away.

There's one in the het goed for E15 that's a Pfaff.  It's a pretty old one, and very heavy, but looks indestructable. I can't find a pic of one quite like it on the interwebs, but have found a load of parts suppliers, so hopefully won't have any trouble if it does need renovation at any point.

Will post pics on Monday when I go claim it. !e cycled over there today (10 and half mile round trip , am exhausted now and think someone has switched my kneecaps for ones that don't quite fit).

Then I shall get on with the patchworkery!

woooooooooo.

turns out it's not a pfaff machine after all, it's Efku. I can't see a model number on it anywhere though, and on getting home I've discovered I haven't a clue how to make the bloody thing work.

Hi Rae,

I looked up Efku & here is a link to an address in Holland, maybe they can tell you where to look for the model number then you could probably get an instruction book from them or online. There is even an UK contact address/ telephone no. if it is easier.

Hope this might help.
