Hi all, I think its time to invest in a motor that isn't so loud and a little faster... Does anyone have any advice?  The one I have is very slow and while this is ok with some jobs, something a tiny bit faster would be great.   Unfortunately Im not sure where to start looking or even what to ask for!CheersDavinaSee More

Have run home based business designing and producing baby photo cards for 5 years (Mini Ink). Have always loved vintage machinery. I owned and restored a 1959 Austin Lancer car in my wild youth. Love that I have found something that merges the 2! and even better that there are other ladies out there with the same inkling! (no pun intended)
