    I can't, but $250 for something they know nothing about, and may not work? They really are dreamin' down there in TX.

    At least wipe it down, take multiple pictures, and make up a good story that involves grandma.

I looked at Ismacs at a 31 and I'm thinking that is an industrial machine. It would be a real nice machine once it is cleaned up and any broken parts replaced/repaired. It is bit beefier than a Singer 15 - the thread guide is much more secure, too. If that machine were to cross my path I would go for it. I have had dirtier machines clean up fine. I don't think I would want to pay that much for it though - not with out the table and motor. With the table and motor it would be a steal.

    It could be a walking foot - but no telling until you get a good look at the front. Somebody is a bit optimistic on the price of that one.

    I'll send him a note in an hour with "even at 425 pesos is a little much don't you think?"
    I sent one, too. Told them to ask $50 and they might sell it.

    It looks industrial to me. It looks like a 16-84, as per this pic
    Other 16s look quite similar, but they all have that pivoted lever going through the base.

    I agree. It's a Singer 16 model. Probably one of the later models. There were quite a number of variations, but the common trait was the lever on the rear operated by a rod through the base. I think😳.
