    As much as I love my treadles, I'd be really tempted to let the go for that kind of price.

    Don't you just love it when the lister tries to pass themselves off as a sewing machine authority and give us a history lesson? Featherweight??? I'm confused.

    I think he just did a cut and paste from some website somewhere.

    Edited...I just did a search and those exact words came up in several places, blogs, ebay, etc. And all for different machines. The internet is a dangerous tool in the hands of the wrong people.!

    I emailed him and he said that he put the serial # number into a search and that's what came up. I emailed him again to just give him a little info on the 221 vs an industrial machine....which is also worth a good amount of money but it would be for a different type of sewing, that's all.

    I didn't bother. I've done that before only to meet with an angry person on the other end of the email. Not worth my time and trouble.

    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    If a FW had a motor like that, it would fly. I suppose they are thinking a dumb person would believe and buy that. Most people who are looking for FWs know what they are looking for--and at!
