    What do I have and what is it worth?

    Hi guys! I was doing a bit of research on an antique sewing machine I had found and stumbled onto your site. I know it's a Willcox and Gibbs Industrial with a serial number of L 117000, but from that point on I have now idea. I was wondering if you could possible help me? I would really appreciate it!

    You can probably get some info on the machine from ISMACS.net. They have dating and general info on a variety of vintage machines.

    For starters, most old machines aren't worth much, unless you can find that one person who wants it.

    For information, try http://www.victoriansweatshop.com/. You might get information there or a lead to where you can get info.

    bkay - jking1974 already did post there.

    As far as worth---see this thread
    "How Much Is My Machine Worth?" Question Answered

    jking1974 There doesn't seem to be much demand for that particular machine. There were some listed worldwide on ebay

    but none sold.

    I rather see these old machines given away to someone who appreciates old machines than go to the dump because it isn't worth anything.

    As the saying goes -- "don't quit your day job." LOL
