    $1,000! Mine is in almost the same condition and cost $48.50 with a new belt! I don't think those plastic casters were new when the machine was, and the pin rash doesn't exactly look factory.

    Here is another for the admirers of old machines. Looks to be a 9w in good condition, and from what I can tell, the price is pretty good, as long as the machine works. Certainly not one seen every day.

    Thanks for the picture with the flash, so I can see just how filthy it really is.

    "Dressmaster" according to the ad. Why is the motor on the front?

    Usually, they just show the back of the machine, but this guy took it a step further and reversed the image. Brilliant!

    I agree! The first thing I thought when I saw the picture was "Poor Baby, you haven't been treated very well"!
