    This guy has no clue that his sewing machine aka boat anchor, doesn't have value that is equal to a working lawn mower or weed whacker

    I've totally got a weed wacker he could take for that. It's worth about $.50 too.

    You think he fished it out of a pond?

    Oh dear, it takes all kinds doesn't it? This thread is hysterical!!
    Never met a scrap of fabric or vintage sewing machine I didn't like!

    Why doesn't he just go pick the trash until he finds what he is really looking for instead of dragging home a poor helpless little sewing machine?

    Probably because he has delusions of grandeur like all other lay people. He sees an old sewing machine and immediately thinks he has stumbled onto a gold mine!

    I wish I had seen this thread earlier. There was an ad on CL from someone that got a Singer at a garage sale and was selling it. He had a picture in the ad but said that it was not of his machine that he was selling, but similar to the one pictured. He wanted $7,000.00 for it.
