    Question Singer 600 available near me

    Good Morning again Ladies . .

    my c/l has a listing for a Singer 600, and I'd like to have your wisdom on it!!

    Has cabinet, attachments, and manual. He says it is the last model to have all metal gears. I have done some reading in 'vintage' and have seen the general perception of plastic gears!

    he is asking $60.

    I am SO broke, and I just got the $20 Singer 248 that I still haven't smoothed the tension problems. My husband was just like "What?!" !! lol . . .

    Should my crazy self even be considering it?

    thanks so much!

    Leave it. Way over priced in my humble opinion. I would save up for a Singer 301 $45-$150 or if you are OK with the weight Singer 15-91 $45-$100.

    Anna, what do you think would be fair for it? I thought he take fifty, and maybe forty if he liked me!

    there are only two on ebay. one has no cord - thirty, and one seems fully loaded, but isn't described very well. Asking 100 for it, with one offer in.

    The all metal seems to be a great feature . . .

    can you tell me more about a 301?

    I am not really 'looking' for one . . . I got the 248, and came to the vintage section, and now I am obsessed!! So, of course, I went and played on c/l, and found the 600. Now, there is a 15-91 also, with a large cabinet for $150.

    i have ebay set to cheapest first, which I just realized is why it is taking me so long to see a 301!

    Are those two just good solid machines for vintage ones?

    you know what, I blame the picture of that Rocketeer. WOW!

    Seems like the 15-91 near me might be a good deal.

    Sometimes I dislike being poor more than others! lol

    Wow! From just internet-jumping it looked like the machines were seventy to a hundred, and so were the cabinets . .

    I would expect his price to have some 'room'. My daddy did teach me to never pay 'sticker'!!

    I haven't contacted either seller (15-91 or 600).

    am I allowed to share c/l links?

    you can post all the c/l adds you want.

    I can tell you on this sticker price thing, your daddy would have never bought a thing from me. I price fair and below the average rate,, say a word about my price and I say good bye to you .

    http://charlotte.craigslist.org/atq/3157278743.html this is the 15-91.

    http://charlotte.craigslist.org/fuo/3126149247.html the Singer 600.

    In general, I don't think of fair prices as 'sticker', you know? I agree with you totally, too. I had someone lowball me for my van, and I flat told him I would take a baseball bat to it myself, before I let it go for *that*!

    My daddy is funny about pricing. We looked at Jeeps when I was twenty, and of course their prices were firm. (summertime). I ended up going with something completely different. i at least wanted some free floormats! ;0)
