If your interested, please call or text. Thank you, (five o three) nine eight nine eight six six eight.

    We discussed the CB thing a while back, here:Singer mdl 15 vs the 115, what's the difference?

    I had to look it up again to remember though.

    There's a "Singer Domestic" on my CL today, too. I see that sort of thing a lot, but usually they leave out the real brand name and just call it a Singer.

    I really loved the all Caps on the Singer, they actually made an effort and still got it wrong.

    Today's lesson:
    Always look inside the case, it might not be what you think it is:
    http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ535567471

    That case is -not- standard for that machine.

    Thanks, Tammi. That thread is great for your pictures showing the differences of the 15 and 115. I thought it might be Central Bobbin, but it seems like such a meaningless distinction. Central to the left side of the machine?

    This looks like a sweet deal for someone, but would it have been so hard to take a picture of the whole front of the machine? It looks like it's in a storage shed, so it would be harder now.

    Really! Are you gonna get that? The case looks like it goes to a 348 or something like that.
    Edit: Actually the case looks newer than a 348. I don't know.

    just how much should someone else pay for your sentiment???
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Well, this is really interesting. A person looking for someone to restore an antique Singer machine. The machine looks to be in really, really rough shape, though.
