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".

Payed $150 for it. It did not come with any accessories or a power cord, but I figured I could get what I need cheap. I used the cord from my laptop and it turned on and appears to be in working order. Anyone have any idea where to get an instruction manual for it? Any other tips as I have never used a Pfaff. It's a model 1473 made in West Gemany.

Thanks

There really should be a forum rule against folks posting this type of score for others to pine over.  It's just plain not legal to steal like that!!

Good price ... but then you knew that ... just wanted to make the rest of us feel jealous!

Cheers,
Tom

Yes, it has the IDT, and it's my second machine. I built a Rok a while back and my next mission is to build a dual or quad of some sort.
