    I looked at a 66 treadle today in a cabinet with serious conition issues and only the flower scroll decals. No attachments and filthy. Seller wants $300.00 firm and she won't even dicker. I tolder that max it was worth $50 and the reality is is that it's worth what someone will pay for it. She wasn't very happy with my information but I wouldn't even pay $50 for it is what I told her. Old, black Singers are a dime a dozen and this one just isn't special nor were the decals special. She siad she'd think about lowering her price. I doubt it though.

    Yep. Have to be, but you have to admit, I've gotten some really nice machines by being patient and waiting for a good price, or someone that would accept a good price!

    The cheap ones I find all need a lot of work.

    I've been lucky then.

    The only work I've had to put into any of my machines is a "clean and oil". I don't like to "mechanic" on them...just not my thing. If they need more than a clean up, they don't come home with me.
    That opinion would change, of course, based on rarity of the machine. I'd tackle more complex repairs if the machine was a rare one...but we all know how rare rare machines are!!
