Before you pitch them, try the folks on Wefixit. They may know how to fix the problem. If the tension mechanism is shot, you may be able to replace it. They were pretty standard tensions as far as I can see in various places, and someone on wefixit may have a donor machine.
two I really want: another Lotus (the Stella Air Electronic), and a Singer Rocketeer. :)
The Singer Rocketeer???!!! Isn't that the 500(x) model? Ugh, I have two I'm going to eBay or put on Craig's List. IMNSHO and frustrating exprience, they do not hold tension AT ALL. And it's not a question of servicing, because I have paid for a complete overhaul of both. I bought one for my DMIL many years ago, and the other (used) for myself. DD inherited the first one, she loathes it as well, I'm going to give her one of my 401a instead. I would not trade *one* 401a for TEN Rocketeers....
