    I know these are pretty sought after but what is a going rate on them? He's asking 150.

    Yes, that is a FW table, I think he is asking too much (JMHO). See if he will take less. If you really want it - go for it.

    It looks like one to me - I would take one of my FW's with me to make sure it fits and how it works. That is the going price here in CA, location is everything.

    It looks just like mine (I think mine is a little darker in colour) and I paid $150 for it. You don't see them in such good shape very often. Many of them were used for other purposes and are broken, water stained with rings or even have burn marks. It's worth the money I think.

    I would pay $150 for it in a heartbeat. I have one without the slide cover and the top is badly in need of refinishing----(I bought the stuff just haven't done it yet) but I love sewing with my FW in it......!

    I would get it before he changes his mind! I think that's a good price.

    I would pay that price too due to the good condition is appears to be in.

    I have one that was poorly refinished. Does not look original at all anymore. BUT. It works great with my FW. I paid $75 for it.

    From what I just heard from a collector in my area, FW tables are fairly hard to find due to the fact that the veneer is very thin on them. The tables were used as card tables as well as sewing tables and many got ruined with wetness. They were selling their refinished ones for over $300. It is an original if the serial number is stamped on the underside of both the table and insert. The numbers should match. if they do, Pay the man and run! It looks to be in excellent shape.

    I got mine for $100 and all the numbers matched. The guy I bought it from made a point to show them to me. LOL I like the extra room it gives me. Now if my FW would just quit with the tension problem.
