    The irons read "Singer" in big letters.

    This part cracked me up: "I have not lifted the machine up out of the storage for I want it kept in good operating condition."

    I didn't look at the other pics, just the first one. The second pic appears to be a Singer Sphinx mounted in the cabinet on the singer treadle irons. Confusing to say the least.

    I just noticed the first picture seems to have been lifted from the internet.

    The first Pic is the "Reference" of what is being offered on Etsy for the high $$$ -

    So, the logic is since someone is selling a very different machine in different condition for a lot of $$$ - that means my totally different item is worth the same. . .

    Wonder if I could sell the guy a Saturn for the price of a Jaguar. I mean, they are both cars right?

Its really all in decent shape, but obviously needs a little restoration. The cabinet is missing the top cover but all the wood working is in great shape. The top is really the only part of wood that could use to be restored. The machine itself seems working, I can turn it by hand. It is missing the belt for the food pedal.

    It has been sitting in my shop for quite a long time. I planned to restore an put in the house but it's become one of those projects that I will probably never do. I'm asking $350.00 for it I think I may be giving it away but judging from what I've seen out there unrestored this is reasonable. Call or text 765-808-0567 if you want to see it"

    WOW!! Pretty machines but ridiculous prices, even for Connecticut where I used to live.

    Just to be fair - that is probably out in the sticks somewhere. I think if the world ends you want to go there - you might get an extra few years.
