This old girl is in pretty rough shape.
Would she be worth their asking price?
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
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??
Poor girl! She needs to go to the ER !!!
I don't have an answer for you. Maybe ask Billy?? (lostn51)
Depends on if u want to fix it up or just thought u have to do a cpl repairs.
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!!!
she would be a good canidate for a special paint job...
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.
