    I know these won't post in order so the blue machine is a Wizard made by brother...very heavy and has zig zag...looks like it was hardly used
    $10.00
    The small one is a old singer sometime in the late er 1800's not sure of the date $1.00


    the one with oll the ornate decoration is a 1924 singer treadle...with a Tiger Oak cabinet. All it needs is a new belt which is ordered and the drawers were full of acessories and buttons and needles my daughter bought this for $40.00 I get to have it as long as i want it...shes a sweetheart my daughter

    I am fairly sure that is the machine they call the FiddleHead machine. look at the base and it looks a little like a violin.........Good find...Does it have the bobbin case? remember, to clean these old painted machines, don't use any harse cleaners....it will take the paint right off....very mild soap,

    I looked for it on ebay and couldn't find it....the boobin and case in side looks fine. i\It's the ouside that has been allowed to rust. I put on a light film of oil to stop the rusting....it looks as if the machine was very ornate

    Go to Ebay, look under antique singer sewing machines, then scrool till you find it. 3 days left to the end. It is the 11th one down on the second page. His lister name is Wolfegang's Collectibes.

    Its fun to buy one for a few dollars and get them to sew. I gave two of the singers to young girls who were taking a garmet sewing class with my grandaughter....she told me they both are making a lot of things at home.

    Ten has been my top price. I just love old machines, but those new ones sure make sewing easy...I saw a nice serger...it had everything the book a dvd, a set of threads a case..personal notes $225. spotless a year old and it was a babylock....sigh

    I keep hoping I will find an embroidery machine, cheap. or how about a longarm set up...have to be under $50..... :lol: :lol: :lol: A girl can dream

    My oldest daughter asked me why I buy so many sewing machines. I said without thinking, cause it makes me feel good and it doesn't break the bank. I can remember wanting a sewing machine sine I was about 7....I went to my Grams most weekend so i could use her machine. I guess this must be the second childhood they talk about :wink:
