    Deb,

    That is a Singer 9W-7. They were made in the late 19 teens. The 9W-7 was Singers version of the Wheeler & Wilson 9D. Singer bought W & W out and continued with the one machine for several years.

    If the cabinet and machine are as good as they look, and there are attachments and a manual I might be coerced to pay that price. But I think it's a bit steep otherwise.

    They are excellent machines. Quiet, smooth and easy to treadle. The only big thing is they turn backwards from all the other Singers. In other words the hand wheel turns away from you rather than towards you.

    Is there a bobbin in it? I'm not sure of this model, but if it takes the same bobbin as my W&W #8 they can be hard to find.

    Like Joe .. if there is a good bobbin and the cabinet is in nice shape ... I could also be persuaded to pay that price .. but I always try to see if they'll accept less.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    DogHouseMom made a point I forgot. The earlier ones had what I've seen described as doughnut or bagel bobbins. That's because the sides are rounded like a doughnut not flat. The later ones use the same bobbin as the Featherweights. Both of mine use the later bobbins.

    I would also pay that price for that machine if it looks as good as the pictures and has a bobbin. Check to see what needle it uses; they could be tricky to find. That's a true antique and it looks beautiful! The cabin looks like Tiger Eye quarter-sawed oak. IMHO, it's worth it.

    You can use MY1014B industrial needles as a substitute. They are round shank but otherwise the same as the Singer 127-1 needles.
    You have to orient them manually as the little screw that locates the flat won't help, but they work good.
