I 'use' a 35th Anniversary Brother machine. It was my great-grandmother's and older than me. Unfortunately, my grandmother was the only one that knew how to use it and the manual is nowhere to be found. Since I need to know every little detail, I'm terrified to use it, haha. The few times I have used it, it was fine, though. It probably hasn't been cleaned in years, but I couldn't tell from the way it worked.
I'm getting a newer machine for X-mas (also Brother), but I'll keep my current one. It will probably be able to sew certain fabrics better than the new model, and I assume the instructions to use it will be more-or-less the same.
