    Probably a good price. It didn't state if it is in working order or not? Also the instructions were in spanish? Might not work with American plugs. Some of the out of country machines have different voltage systems in their motors. It does have the scroll face on it which is the more collectible one of the FW's.

    It specifically says it will not work in the US. That was under the review section. You need a converter.

    Yup that's why no ones bidding or that baby would have been well o/200 by now. Needs converter for US usage

    The reviews weren't about that particular machine. They were about FW's people are reviewing.

    I don't see anywhere that it says it was made in Canada.
    I think you're reading reviews.

    The seller says very little about it, just that it's a FW 221 and the manual is in spanish.
    This is the seller's description:

    Singer Featherweight 221 Sewing Machine
    Case
    Spanish Instruction Manuel

    There are about 12 pictures under the big one. When you enlarge the pictures, you can see all the labels for the machine being sold. At least you could before it ended.

    I wonder if they will re-list it. Lots of times they do. If anyone sees it again you could email the seller to see if it works in the US.

    No one bid on it. I didn't look to see if it was in working order. I have a FW already plus two other vintage machines (WHITE and a 1914 Singe Red Eye). Don't need another.

    It says on the machine that it was made in Canada. I sent an email inquiry about the electrical question. If an answer comes back will let you know.

    I did see some where yesterday searching for FW's one that was made in Canada, not sure if it was E-bay or not.

    Received a message from Ebay Member Bailg. The machine has a U.S. Electrical plug.

    And there's got to be something there that no one bid on a Featherweight...that alone makes me suspect something is not right
