    We picked this @ an estate auction in its unopened Wooden rounded top case. After getting the case open without any damage we were surprized @ the excellent condition. Plugged it in and put the knee bar on and it ran smooth and quiet. I love this thing.

    Would any of you know it's possible Value? My wife saw a 1 yr. newer model on Ebay bids up to $1200. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is it too tacky to ask how much you paid for it at the estate sale? My daughter and I were admiring your awesome find and are so curious!

    Maybe you could post it under Vintage Machines in the "Main" catagory, someof the people there are SO knowledgeable, they might know something more about your beauty!

    $50.00 But the Cover had no Key and we weren't sure what condition it would be in untill we could take it home and open the case. It was like buyin' a Pig in a Poke so to speak. This also has foot attachments etc.

    Yes and it runs smooth and quiet. Ithas a knee arm to control the speed and it speeds and slows like new.
