I once saw a Necchi BU in a cabinet similar to these at a second hand store, but the cabinet had been damaged and the machine was missing some parts.
So, if a Necchi fits and a Pfaff fits then does a Singer fit this cabinet too? Necchi Bu fits a Singer cabinet.
As a side note, the machine I bought from Goodwill was clean, bright and shiny and works perfectly. Probably the strongest motor in the house (Matsushti). It shipped for a whopping $17+ and was well packed though the box was flimsier than I would have chosen. I paid $6.99, plus the $2 fee. It's a Japanese machine branded Admiral, apparently made by Brother, but it looks like a Necchi. The feed dogs do drop and it has the vertical bobbin I want for FMQ. So why do I want to sell it? Because I have too many machines and still want another 301 and a Redeye.
I can understand the desire for a colored machine, though I would like my next 301 in black.
Candace, I do want to congratulate you on finding another 301. My previous post didn't sound like that.
Does anyone know where I can find the original price for vintage Singer sewing machines? I had the information at one time, but don't know where I found it. I need help!
I've picked up 3 machines from the local Goodwill auction site. All three were nice machines and fantastic prices. It seems they always need some kind of work though.
1906 - 1912 $36.80 to 41.60
1913 - 1917 $39.60 to 44.40
1918 - 1920 $44.40 to 55.60
1921 - 1928 $60.80 to 67.20
1928 - 1935 $72.25 to 85.00
1935 - 1946 $84.00 to 115.00
When you figure folks weren't making more than a couple dollars a week those days - those machines were GOLD!!!
Then when you look at how well they were made and hold up they ARE gold - GOLDEN YEARS OF AMERICA at that!
Then today, when you look at a new sewing machine costing less than one day's or one week's work - no wonder they are disposable and if you look at how they are made it is no wonder they have so little value.
