While purusing antique shops today, dh and I came across an old Singer in a 'brown case' The retail was $60, less 20%, bringing the purchase price to $48 plus tax.
I put the machine ID # into my phone and found out it was made between '48 and '51. Would someone please tell me what I need to look for to determine it a worthwhile purchase. How would I know if it is/not salvagable as an operating piece? Seriously, I think it would be great to have an eye candy piece, but it could be used to acutually make a quilt, all the better.
Please feel free to point me in the right direction.
