Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Nice find but no IDT on that one? My sewing repair shop has a few Pfaffs Ive looked at getting but the later models weren't made in Germany and not as good. Ive got an old singer 500a for my main machine but its a workhorse.  I found a walking foot for it and sewing ripstop or organza is a dream now.

Im not sure what an "IDT" is but this model looks just like the 1222 I had before.

Ok, just looked it up. Didn't recognize the abbreviation IDT, but I assure you the Dual Feed Foot is there and working and is the main reason I wanted the machine. All is well  Grin

I just confirmed with his daughter that Tony Carl passed away on November 8.  I hadn't been able to get ahold of him for a few weeks and was putting together what pics I could find for a FB page for the fun fly group and found his obit.  I would have posted sooner but I wanted to be sure it was him first and I just heard from his daughter yesterday.  Tony never wanted to make a big deal out of things and didn't want any kind of service but I know he wouldn't mind you guys knowing and tossing up a kite for him.  Heres his obit for those that would like to look.  http://m.legacy.com/obituaries/sfgate/obituary.aspx?n=anthony-carl&pid=182634199&referrer=0&preview=false

I just noticed that (no IDT). Odd.. I think the 1222's all had that. My SE does:

It may be a bit far for him to drive but he's welcome to join us at our fun flies in Ripon.

Nice layout but the response seems a bit sloppy and unbalanced.  I assume your still tuning though or the wind wasn't that good so it will probably get better.  Looked like the wind was a bit too low in a few shots.  Over all it looks promising.

On a side note I saw the SKD logo and got you mixed up with Sport Kite Designs at first until I actually read your company name.  Might be something for you to consider.
