    I paid $35 for a similar size machine (a 128) in a bentwood case last December. I wouldn't sell her for less.

    Just checked my semi-local Craig's list and they have some very ambitious sellers on there this week - a featherweight for $600 and a New Ideal treadle with no belt and not so good cabinet for $425. The person with the treadle had a comment in his/her ad about it being 'antique enough' for that price!

    I would agree, CL is all over the map on prices. Some of those people must be smoking something - it is a good place to pick up a machine for not too much once in a while. However, I have yet to pick one up for not too much that actually works in every way. I've also sold some - I price mine moderately and do ok there. Then some times a really good machine will just sit there. Go figure. I would like to know a place to sell good machines locally.
