    Is that a "Red Eye"? Does it work? Does it have all it's parts and attachments? If you bid, don't go over what you are comfortable paying. Looks like a trip to the machine guy for cleaning and adjusting would do the trick.

    I would say a Red Eye... but there are more knowledgeable persons on this board that can clarify it for you
    I'd bid on it regardless unless you want a specific model of machine.

    I believe you are right - a red eye. It's only at $20 right now. I might tell my parents this would make a great Christmas gift if the price doesn't go too high. Thanks for your help!

    It is a Singer Red Eye but I wouldn't pay much for it as the cabinet is in rough shape. The machine itself looks good.

    It is a Singer 66 Red Eye. Great machines. Hope you get it!

    As everyone else has said it is a Singer Red Eye. It has been electrified. Nice if that is what you want. I have a Red Eye that my husband is working on the cabinet and I am working on the machine (hoping to send it to Billy when he gets back on his feet). I was looking for a treadle. But it is pretty easy to take off the motor - providing that all of the treadle pieces are there.
