    I live 3 hours away. It's tempting to drive down with a U-Haul and pick them up but I have no space for so many machines in my apartment! Too bad!!

    I have a 1925 66 in treadle and love it. I use it mostly for piecing, but it sews like a dream. I would definitely pay $50 for one.

    Don't you wish we all could buy them and split them up among us? LOL

    I live way to far away.

    I have to admit, hubby and I took a good look at all those machines - and the price - and discussed. It would be a great buy in my retirement. Unfortunately ... I'm not retired!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I don't think there are any. If anyone bids on that, please be very careful. The ad says there are 18 featherweights, 4 in cabinets and one of them is labeled 99k. I truly believe this person has mistaken 3/4 sized singers for featherweights. The value is completely different if there aren't 18 featherweights in that lot.

    As another note though, it does say take one or take all.... perhaps a person could pick and choose what they wanted if they were close enough.... take documentation with you though as to what a featherweight really is.

    There is NO Featherweights in the mix. She's confusing the single alpha digit serial numbers as FWs. I've studied those pics and drooled and slobbered over them. If I had the $500 and a place to store them while I worked 'em over I'd buy 'em.

    Lots of nice machines in there.
