    OI! NIB... sure. That's what the pic says too. *head slap*

    The pics make this one. The price is whacked out, but the pic of the accessories sure makes you look twice at the machine... I do like the little chest though.

    I find with tinkerer spouses, it's always better to let them have their own to mess up. Divorces are costly.

It -is- an old one, possibly worth close to asking for the right buyer... who's unfortunately not me.
    Here is some info from Ismacs "
    Wheel feed, vibrating presser. Large reciprocating shuttle. For carriage trimmings, making heavy cushions, including edge cording etc, and general work in coarse fabrics. Industrial treadle or power table. Gear driven. Speed 700. No. 9 shuttle."

    Here is another link regarding the Singer 3-1 http://targoclinic.com/ . They have one for sale for $2600 Australian. For a real collector perhaps the $600 price tag would not be too much.

    Not sure about this one, but it is interesting though the price is not. Leather machine?
    Singer Model 3.... Awesome industrial machine. Kinda pricey for the condition, but I'd make room for it..... If it was not local pickup.... so goofy....
