    All I know about Jones sewing machine is that it was the first sewing machine manufacture from the Old World. This girl looks so pretty! The owner says it works it just needs a belt. I will go see her today. He is asking 125. Does anyone know anything about these machines.

    I would pay and RUN before he changed his mind. I would just love to have it sitting in my house.

    That's a great price for a machine and cabinet in that condition. I would take her home with me!

    I know nothing about vintage sewing machines but she's so pretty that I'd adopt her anyway.

    It's a nice looking machine. You should adopt, and put her to work! :-D

    I don't know anything about the machine, but it's a real beauty and so is the cabinet. I would get it in a heartbeat if I had the spare money and was closer. Try PMing Lostn51, he knows tons about the old treadles.
