This is really useful information
If you haven't already, you should send the links to Sally for the GBACG website.

Don't you love the definition of "plastic?"

This is definitely a living document, I came up with almost a dozen more terms since the first time I saved it.

I used to have a Singer Futura II 920 with in-place bobbin winding, and it actually worked really well. Go fig.

I've had two Singers with in-place bobbin winding and both were pure evil ^^;;;. I'm glad you managed to get a good one.

Well, the Futura II is considered by many repair technicians to be the last good machine that Singer ever made. It's predecessor, the Futura 900, on the other hand, is considered to be the first lemon that Singer ever made.
