Warning.  Please be aware that the handles of Brother Electronic machines tend to break.  We do not know if it is one particular type or batch but we have heard of several machines that have dropped to the ground as a result of the plastic handle breaking.  It is suggested that you either carry your machine by wrapping your arms around it or by putting a leather strap into the metal clips that the handle fits into.  Perhaps members could let us know if this has happened to other types of machine.
