    Featherweight Beth,
    Your Elgin with the green decals is very pretty. I like the look of the cabinet and treadle too. Enjoy treadling!

    The closes I can come to guessing what model that I have is a Singer 15-91. The Singer site only gave me the year and where it was made. What can anyone tell me about this machine? Kathie

    Bought my first Domestic treadle today, I think it's called a fiddle back or bottom. All the parts are there, coffin top, and has a lot of accessories. Very little rust, cabinet has a lot of grime on it, but no veneer peal and no water stains. The machine has a layer of grime that I hope is hiding some nice decals, I can barely see them under the grime. Where can I get an idea of the age? The serial # I forgot to right down. It may be delivered this afternoon or I will have to pick it up next week.

    Super nice machine. Cabinet is one of the best condition I've seem.

    1920 White Rotary. I found this on Craigs List. She's in fair shape with lots of attachments. Her cabinet was made for a White machine, but do you think it is a 1920's cabinet?? Seems like she was repainted at some time. She's my first White and a whole lot different than my Nationals or Singers. For $5.00 I figured I couldn't go wrong.

    This guy is always posting some cool looking or pretty machine, but he is a bit high for me. I try to get all my machines around a $100 or less.

    I copied the picture just in case the listing is removed.

    Oh, and motor looks huge!
    Our sewing repair shop here has one of those clones. I was not impressed with it at all. Up close and personal it looked very cheaply made, nothing like a real FW. The FW clones are not in the same league as the Singer Model 15 clones made in Japan in the late 40, 50, and early 60's. The FW clones in my opinion are just a cheap imitation of the real thing, where the 15 clones were actually as good, if not better, that the original thing.

    I can't believe someone would pay that much for an imitation when they could get a real one for the same price? Maybe, cause it is for a collector?

    Some people just don't know any better.
