    This old girl is in pretty rough shape.
    Would she be worth their asking price?

    WOW that poor machine has seen some abuse......... personally I would pass....... you'd be better off paying a bit more for a good machine. IMHO

    There's a good site on line that explains how to repair, you can buy parts-they go for a lot more in good condition. If you (or someone who loves you) can do repairs-why not??

    I would also pass. You will find a nicer one. By the time you get this one looking decent you will have invested way to much time for what you can purchase a nice one for. My time is worth sonmething!!!

    Definitely pass. $50 is way too much for that.

    I'd pass if you care about looks. You could probably get her to sew, but it's an aluminum machine and once the rot starts, I'm not sure it can be repaired.

    I came across this one too. But after paying 50 then think about the money you will put out for repairs. This one looked like it had been thru WW 3 to me. I am sure you will find something much better. I am just looking for a treadle.
