    Thats what they cost at the shop where I have to go. Everything else is gold plated there too.

    Three featherweight cabinets on ebay now, variety of prices. Seen a few on there lately but don't think any have sold but nice to look at. Mine must be worth a mint compared to some of them but ain't parting with it.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    "NO SCRAPPERS I CAN DO THAT MYSELF." I think that's all that's left for this poor old machine. If you dunked it in a tub of Evaporust, it would disappear!

    I doubt if he can get $75 for it at the scrap yard...

    The local scrap yard gives about 15 cents a pound. Times 25~ pounds of sewing machine is $3.75. I doubt it's worth that!

    and why does he think he can get $75 for this poor old thing? Guess he doesn't know how much he would get if he scrapped it himself.

    Good grief! I finally sold my old 290c. That machine was so allergic to heavy duty work, it started sneezing if I approached it with a fresh needle.
