    I just caught this thread. That machine looks a lot like the 16-88 that I am currently working on.

    My guess had been a 31, but seeing Cathy's 16, I'm changing my vote and raising it an "I want!"

    Why wouldn't you want it? It's clearly an industrial version of the 15: The machine that can sew baked bean cans. What is the industrial version capable of? Sewing a couple of anvils together?

    Well, I was close - it is industrial...
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Oooh! I can't tell you how often I've needed to sew 2 anvils together!

    Uhhhh....

    "We found a Domestic brand sewing machine stashed in the house we moved into. We don't need it, and don't want it lying around.

    We also don't know anything about it so there is no point in asking a lot of questions."

    No photo.

    So to recap: We found it, paid nothing for it, know nothing about it, pulled a price out of our as... uh rump, don't ask us anything about it.

    Hee hee. I don't think it's a stretch to call these people stupid. Either they do no investigation whatsoever or expect that someone will shell out ten times what something's worth without thinking about it!
    They don't even say it's a 15, meaning they don't know what they're asking a king's ransom for.
