    Went to the longest yardsale today, looking for one thing and I found it. Cost me 300.00 dollars I hope it was a good bargin. And most of all it runs great.

    the thing about older machines is that their is no plastic parts to break, they where made to last a long time.

    Yes, You got a good deal on it. I have one just like that. Mine was manufactured in 1935. I received it for my 11th Christmas.

    Good for you, it will be worth it. It is a centenniel model, the gold looks good. Read your book, oil it regularly remember the motor takes Singer Lubricant (grease - not oil) and enjoy, they are truly wonderful machines. If you have questions do not be afraid to ask, we are here to help.

    That looks like a beauty. I bought one at an auction in
    southern Ontario for $130 and it even had the keys with it to lock the case. When you check out the prices on e-bay, they really are pricey....you did excellent.

    I have one that was in my garage for 15 years. I sent it to Billy and he cleaned and fixed it all for me. I havent used it yet as I dont know how to thread it. No manuel but I do have lots of old attachments(feet)
