    Would you buy this 1920 Singer Red Eye?

    I am hoping someone can shed some light on this for me. What questions do I need to ask other than the bobbin cover, cord???? He wants $30- was his MIL.

    BUY IT, $30 is a great price at least for my area! Is there a bobbin with it?? The ladies over at the Vintage and Antique Machine MB are great and will be able to help you with anything you need.

    Absolutely! The price is right, it's a good looking machine, and accessories are not hard to find. That is, of course, if I were in the market for a Red Eye.

    if you like vintage machines that is a great price. the people over in the vintage machine thread should be able to answer any questions you have as i know several of them have singer red eyes.

    btw, the decals on this machine look great.

    I have a 1918 that my grandmother recd. as a wedding gift from my grandad. It sews like a dream. That is not the original cabinet, but it looks good and fits. Later you may find a lonesome cabinet for it and make it whole. I know you will find great enjoyment out of her.
