    Maybe his air conditioner went out and cooked his brains a little - hence the house repairs LOL.

    Not sure what something like that should cost, but at least he does say: "need extra money up in this house for repairs"

    LOL LOL!!! Sad thing is that someone that doesn't know better will spend the money to get it.

    That machine should be priced more around $25 to $50! Personally, I wouldn't buy it just because it's NOT been taken care of...I have a machine from 1880 that's in better shape!

    Even featherweights don't cost that kind of money, and those are highly sought after because of their portability!

    One of his beer buddies probably told him that it's a sought after antique.

    Maybe he should tote it to one of those "Antique Road Shows" for an eye opener.

    In defense of the machine, and NOT the seller, it is a Singer...Those puppies were built like a brick outhouse... run forever and can be oiled by the owner, instead of having to send it out....It isn't worth the price he is asking though......just sayin....

    What is the red around the head of the machine?? Is it duct tape?? Must have something major wrong with it, don't ya think? I am going to inventory my sewing machine collection, maybe I could buy a new car!

    I had a good laugh when reading this ad, thank you very much! I also sent him an email and told him whomever was the original owner should be ashamed because this machine hasn't been taken care.

    People usually think adding the word "Vintage" will make thier overpriced junk sell.

    On Ebay a guy has an 1899 Singer handcrank machine that looks like it was hardly used, it's got all the beautiful scrolled decaling on it, original manual and accessories. He wants $1200 for it. Check it out!

    The red band wrapped around the middle section of the machine is a scrap of fabric used for a pincushion. My mother had a bright pink one sewn around her treadle Singer machine. She wrapped the fabric around a few times, then hand stitched it to keep it in place.
