    I knew right away that you did not have a 66 there, it being a 127 'cause it is just like the 127 I bought, it is the Phoenix version. Actually, it isn't just like mine, it is in much better shape than mine.

    I have not seen the prices on Ebay, but I might look; however that is likely to make me change my mind about getting rid of it. I was going to have it worked on at my LQS, but when it would not turn on I figured it would cost too much. I am assuming it could be fixed- is that correct?

    It could be a $10 part or it could be a couple of hundred dollars. Maybe it's just the belt that needs to replaced, or maybe the whole motor.

    Personally, I think it would be worth it to a least have a repairman look look at it.

    People buy them just as decorative furniture as well.

    Again, it's totally your choice if you just want to give it away. ;-)

    You will need to get the flywheel and pedal assembly for the treadle if you wanted to put it back to being a treadle model. But you can keep it electric if you want but need to get the wiring checked out.

    Wow! Do I wish I was close to you! I'd take it in a heart beat! There don't seem to be many machines in this area of the country! Bless you for your generous offer! :)
