    For that price get it they were not made for a couple of years at the most between 1910 and 1911. And if your lucky it was made from the left over castings of the W&W factory buy out. If it was then your sitting on a gold mine!!

    I have seen this machine and it is really nice, so I was really surprised when I opened it up and there was that "can" in place of the bobbin. I will try to get some pictures of it. Good to see you posting, Billy.

    You know Jan I would almost site unseen give her $100 and would not bat an eye. But all of the parts need to be there especially the can for the bottom spool.

    Wow!! That is good to know. I will try to get some pictures in the next few days. I won't tell her what you said though. I know the can is there, cause I've seen it.

    Okay, I need some help here. Do I *really* need a third 201-3? Don't enable me, but it is a centennial in a portable case for $50. I'm still trying to put my 411g back together and I'm looking at other machines. I feel like I'm cheating on the ones waiting in line to be cleaned. Not to mention that I'm getting no sewing done. And I still need to go pick up my treadle with a 15-96 in it sometime in the next week.

    What is a girl to do? ;)

    And you really have to ask this question? Get it and dont even think twice about it, I have machines coming in almost weekly (I am fixing to go get 5 more tomorrow) and all I am doing is parking them in the garage for future cleaning.

    But Billy, you're like the Sewing Machine Whisperer. I think I'd have a stroke if I had 5 machines come in in one day. And that would be after DH kills me. He's at his limit with 16 machines already. Thank goodness he leaves for hunting next week :p.

    So hide it in the herd. He will never notice the new one cuz all vintage Singers look alike - according to my children.

    Hey one of the 5 is a big old Singer industrial 1300-1 with about a 15" throat space on it perfect for some FMQ quilting!!! And the rest are treadles from the 1800's including a W&W #8 that is immaculate with all of the decals!
