    diamond in the rough? Looks like a lot of work to me though.

    Quiltingweb - that White looks nice.

    If I could go back in time one of the things I'd do is find out who started that "antiquing" fad where they painted things with paint that would crack and peal. I hated that when it started and I hate it now. When I found out who started it I think I'd strip 'em nekid and tie 'em to a phone pole then paint 'em with the antiquing paint.
    Then leave 'em for the bugs and critters to nibble on.

    If I had the funds, I'd take on the challenge of that machine and cabinet. But not at that price.

    I was at an estate sale and was looking at the old sewing machines. The man who was running the sale told me there was another one out in the barn. So, up to the the top of the barn we went...It was a White, crinkle finish, but it was electric. The cabinet was in rough shape. He said he'd give it to me...I said no at the time and now I kinda want to kick myself. I think the cabinet was a lot like this one, but thinking back, I think it was more dirty than anything...might have had a few mice living in its drawers...Anyway, I know this is not a photo, but the above post made me think of this. I've since heard that the white cabinets are hard to come by. I called him a couple days ago...he's going to have another sale...I'd like to see that White again.

    It depends on the condition. I have one ain't worth squat - it is a parts machine. I have a couple probably worth a couple hundred. If you find one worked on by Ray White or Mr. Arbuckle you might expect to pay $500 or so with all the attachments. The attachments/disks are expensive.

    I really enjoyed your contributions of pictures and photos. I think we can all learn from this information.

    I have 3 of these IRON LADIES.........the 128 is in great shape, no rust, no dirt, etc..........came from a display at a quilt shop going out of business ($63.00)............the threadle is the Sphinx design, got it for $50.00 with the treadel cabinet that is in pretty rough shape (water damage, I think), and the little brown one, a 301 from Anderson, SC came for a thrift store for $32.00......it sews so well, have been using it all day on a quilt.

    Cool Pfaff 60 treadle picture

    Here's a picture of my new toy. Its a Pfaff 60 straight stitch treadle, industrial cabinet that came from Germany. Everything is in very good condition, has some attachment feet,bobbin case and looks like it uses class 15 bobbins. I got it to sew using the hand wheel, sews a lovely stitch. I can hardly wait for the belt to get here so I can start using it.
    I'm the second owner. I bought it locally from someone on Craig's List.
