I have the opportunity to purchase either a 15-91 (1948 - 1950) in cabinet 65 for $50 or bid on a Singer 301 in a Queen Anne table (current bid is $75). I favor the 301 because I know I could potentially find a case and use is as a portable machine but I have a limited budget that I am willing to spend.
I haven't seen either in person. The 301 appears to have been kept indoors.
I currently have a White Family Rotary treadle machine (which I haven't sewn with yet) and a singer 128-23 ( I still haven't fixed the power cord yet). I also have 2 more modern machines - a Pfaff 7570 and a Juki 98e.
So what do you think? Which would you go for?
