    Hello everyone, I am looking for an older Singer or similar all-metal machine. I am still fairly new to sewing and my very basic machine died on me. Hubby and I are tight on money so hoping to find a good used machine that will last and last. I heard the Singer models 301, 328, 401, 403, 500a, Slant-O-Matic, Rocketeer, etc are very good workhorse types. I am willing to pay for shipping and then some for the machine as well, but our budget is pretty limited. Thank you for your time.

    Ashley, I would suggest Ebay or Craig's list.

    If you buy locally you can get a machine you listed in the $20-$100 range. Or put an ad in your local freecycle?

    Thank you ladies! I have had no luck locally, tried thrift stores, Craigslist, freecycle, etc. I am looking on Ebay as well.

    I purchased mine from a dealer more than 30 years ago. It was a trade-in. If you have any dealers in your area you might want to check with them.
