    I had to. I responded. Likely nothing will happen, but what the heck.

    Said I had to have it, I've been looking for a FW with a potted motor forever!!

    "Uh… that's a 15-91 like it says on the Original user's manual…

    Not even CLOSE to being a featherweight. A featherweight is a 1/2 sized machine, weighs 11 pounds, has a flip up extension to the left of the needle, has a belted motor, and is made primarily of aluminum. They also were only produced starting in 1937.

    A 15-91 is a full sized machine, weighs about 30 pounds, has no extension, has no belt for the motor, and is made of cast iron."

    The 15-91 is CERTAINLY not a featherweight.

    The seller revised the listing - your email must have shown him the error of his ways!

    I've never seen one with the fancy scroll work on the stitch length selector cover plate.

    This one looks like it has silver parts where there are normally black parts. Might have to see it in person.

    Don't know if this is giggle worthy or not, but it has been listed several times at the same price. Not sure how rare the fold out card table is.
