    Does anyone have any knowledge about the 1948 kenmores. Model 117 959? Just got a call. She's selling her mothers old machine with maple cabinet for 180.00. She says it's in mint condition. Isn't that alot for a kenmore?? Or should I wait and get a diff brand?

    I don't collect old machines, but that sounds like a lot. Many of the people here have gotten machines this age for around $50 or less through Craigs List etc. You can always 'gently' make an offer of less.

    I have about 8 old kenmore and singers, and i have not paid more than $5. for any of them, these are all portables tho, not in cabinets. Kenmores were great machines.

    My suggestion would be to go look at it and see if you like it. As far as price, just depends on what one is willing to pay. My mom had a Kenmore she bought new in 1952. What a workhorse. Good luck what ever you decide.

    How much is it worth to you is the question. But, if it were me I'd offer $30 if it's a mint machine and cabinet and keep looking if she doesn't take it. There are a ton of older machines on the market.
