    Did Singer make a treadle model in 1954? I know it was 8 yrs after WWII

    Thought everything was electric by then - Please don't laugh

    Is this a good deal?

    You can still buy new treadle machines.

    Yes and they still are made. I think the price is too high even if it is in great condition. Not sure what the model of the machine is but someone in the VSMS can surely help with that.

    That price is about right if everything is as he states. I paid over $200 for mine. If you go to look at it, make sure there are "bobbins" for the machine and that it works.

    VSMS= Vintage Sewing Machine Shop, on this board. This looks like a model 27, with that ginormous harp space! It's a vibrating shuttle machine that winds the long bobbins, rather than the round ones modern machines use. I don't think these were produced that late into that century. Maybe the 20's, at the latest? What you need to do is get the seller to send you the exact serial number and then you can look up the model and year of manufacture on the Singer site.

    I would think it was worth no more than, $150, if in really great shape cosmetically. It does have lots of attachments and the book. That's a plus and worth part of the price.

    With the vibrating shuttle, it most definetly is not a model made in the 50's. More like the 20's. It is either a 127 or a 27. I bought a 127 a year ago for $90. It was dirty and the cabinet has a few issues, like a rusty wheel and treadle, but not really bad shape.

    I think I'd be thrilled to pay $200 for that, if it's as nice as it looks in the pics.
