Personally, I haven't used one (I started out on a 80's singer and moved to a 90's pfaff), but maybe there's someone in our community that has.
I have a Universal Super ML, it has to be at least 60 years old. Built like a tank, sews one stitch great. My only problem I can see is where to find new needles.
