    Singer Sewing Cams: do people ever want these ?

    Yesterday I was at a thrift store and saw a box of Singer Touch and Sew sewing cams for a Model 648. My DH and I wondered if others want these? I hate to just leave them there, but I don't have a need for them. I guess I could look at eBay and see if there are people who want them.

    Yes we buy and rescue every one we find, even if we don't know what they fit.
    We have put together almost a complete set of top hat and flat cams for the Singers by doing this.
    Do you remember how much the price was on that set of cams.
    Go get them if it is not an inconvenience and we will buy them.

    I do know these cams are for a Singer Touch and Sew Model 648 because they came in the original box. We are going into town today and will see if they are still there. Will pm you later.

    I almost always buy sewing machine related stuff - you never know when you might get a machine they will work on - I am looking for parts for a White Rotary that I bought a couple of weeks ago at a yard sale. Just found out it is a Model 1X, was made in the 1929 in Cincinnati, OH (information courtesy of call - ismacs).

    The sewing machine dealer that I use, sells the cams for $3 each.

    w7sue,
    We do the same. You never know, it just might make good bartering material some day.

    Tink's Mom,
    Well, our LSMG sells them for a dollar each or less. But we've cleaned him out of all those we didn't have. Sooooo, we grab what we can and when we complete our set(s) we leave the rest for somebody else.

    Joe
