    Is this a good price?

    I know nothing about old machines but see that some of you have gotten machines for some pretty fabulous prices.
    Is this a fair price for this machine and cabinet?

    Personally I think it's way over priced...but I don't know the market in your area either. I'm guessing it's a model 99? Can you get any more info from the seller? The cabinet to me appears a little on the rough side. Certainly usable but not pristine which I would expect for that price. In this neighborhood, you can find a cabinet and machine in that condition in the $50-$75 range if you're only mildly patient.

    I agree with NJ Quilter, way too much. And it appears that the bobbin cover is missing and I would guess the wiring would be iffy at best.

    I like the foot control, but it seems pretty high priced. More than what I would be willing to pay.

    Got my 99 in a nice cabinet for $60.00. And my machine looks like it's never been used. I'd keep looking.

    It is way over priced, it doesn't have a bobbin, bobbin cover.

    LOL it is a fair price if you are the seller. If you are the buyer - well, not so much...

    The foot control is the real money on this machine ask about the cover for the bobbin and say well you know it is missing and that interferes with the working of the machine and are there any attachments and do some dickering. The others are right about getting down I would say in the neighborhood of $50.00 - $100.00 dollars. good luck! and let us know what you do.
