    Wow! really? I've only ever seen them on ebay. Is there any other info on them that you've seen? I know the guy is Singer taught, but he can't be the only one with them then??

    if you look at the photos the red S badge on them looks fake, compared to the one on my featherweight. Is this the only "super singer" they made? The decals look so strange to me.

    In the pictures on the ebay ad (scroll down) the badge even looks crooked, or the rivets are.
    He states that it's a 'Nice Replica of the old Singer 15 Class"

    The decals look overstated to me. Charlee's probably right, Singer did make the repro, but it looks like they didn't really put their all into the design of it. The plug looks awful, the knob drilled onto the front looks awful, and the decals look like a caricature of the old Sphinx / Memphis decals. The other part that I find really weird is that the pedal and the motor are not Singer branded.

    They're all over the place...several folks here own them...
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    I will have to look harder for them then. I'd like to read the back story on them.

    In the meantime:
    A left handed Singer? Looks like an industrial to me, still seems pricey.

    Saw this on my Minneapolis CL today...will not separate cabinet and machine...but you can't have the base...What?


    Selling an antique sewing machine and cabinet (sold together, will not separate). I believe the cabinet is oak. Some of the veneer on the top has chipped off. The wrought iron base IS NOT for sale.

    Serious inquiries only. In person, cash only. Include name and phone number in your email. Spammers will be reported to craigslist.

    Woodwork and head stay together, seller wants the cast base for a table I'd imagine. Head looks like Free / Westinghouse (?)

    It is an industrial machine for sewing leather. Pricey yes, but they are workhorses if not wore out.

    "Best offer can have something rare." I think the poster's definition of 'rare' is somewhat different than mine...

    There's no such thing as too many sewing machines!
