    What Model Is This?

    I'm talking to a gentleman who's selling this machine, but neither one of us knows what it is. The manual says it's a 201-2, but he's not 100% sure that it's the manual that goes with the machine. Sorry the pics are small; they're from his ad online.

    Any ideas what it is, and what a fair price would be? He said it's in good shape and works fine. Thanks in advance!

    Oh my., Does it work? If no one is sure if it works, take a pass on it. Fondly, Sophie.

    It is a 201-2.

    $40-$60 is likely what I would pay.

    Thank you! He's asking $100 for it, but that's about what I'd pay if I bought one off eBay, by the time shipping was added in.

    Edited to add: He's taking it to a flea market tomorrow, but if he doesn't sell it there, I'm supposed to go look at it Wednesday morning. We'll see how it goes.

    I might go a little higher just because the 201-2 is so awesome.

    From a distance it looks pretty good. If the cabinet veneer is OK and the machine performs resonably well, I feel $100 is reasonable. Those of us attempting resale, of course, are looking for bargains. As a keeper, I'd give a $100 for this machine and make a jewel out of it.

    I've paid $150 for a similar outfit, but mine had a stool and the stools can easily cost $25- $50.

    Around my area, that would be a very good price for the whole package - even if it didn't run.

    If the hemstitcher has all the parts, it alone is worth $30 - but only if it has ALL the parts.

    We paid about $75.00 - a senior discount for our 201-2 in the cabinet. It works superbly. But it didn't have the owners manual or accessories.

    If that machine runs I'd not quibble over the price. I'd snag it and fix the cabinet and smile and grin all the time.
