    I believe $40.00 would be a much more reasonable price, IMHO, than the $4000 listed.

    I have that same cabinet with a 127-3 in it but got it for $100. The only issue with mine is the center drawer won't stay in the cabinet. I need to repair that.

    I saw a wreck of an old Kenmore today, in regular small cabinet, for $125 at a sale. I laughed. Then, I look on CL today and see this...500 bucks for a treadle, broken, minus machine.

    LOL! You might have something there. Learning how to do free motion embroidery is on my bucket list, but in reality, I don't think I've had a lot of things I've looked at recently that I've thought " You know what would finish that up just right? An embroidered design right there..." Though I do love the little featherweights you see on the covers sometimes...
