    You have been living well and blessed for it!

    I got a Singer, I think like yours, a 15-91 last week on Craigslist, in a cabinet for only $25.

    I'll have to do a posting about it too

When i asked the man how much they where i did a double take, and asked again.... My DH picked both of them up, they both work..only minor things need to be replaced, both came with the feet and the Free Westinghouse also came with the instruction book. My mother in law is getting the Singer ( i haven't seen her this happy in a long time) and i am keeping the Free Westinghouse. We are both in shock that we only paid $20 bucks for BOTH of them.
    My DH then proceed to go to a sewing machine repair guy and is getting a Singer commercial machine with an 11 inch throat space completely retrofitting it to be used as my quilting machine on the frame. I swear that my DH surprised the heck out of me. I am so very lucky to have him :D
    What a STEAL! I wish I could find a nice 15-91 for cheap...

    The Free Westinghouse looks so similar to the one my mother had that I learned to sew on, except hers was black. Even the cabinet looks familiar. I remember coming home from school and her door would be closed with the machine running and she would say, "Don't come in here." We knew she was making something for us for Christmas. Enjoy!

I just got one from a friend & will be using it for my FMQ machine, partly because you can lower the feed dogs on the 15. (Don't know about that on the 66)
    I went to the site, at first i thought it was a 176 but when i found the book yea, no...I am almost positive that it is a 66 if i am looking at the numbers correctly. Now i have to find out what Free Westinghouse i have. Funny thing is that the repair guy told me to scap the Free Westinghouse, because it is a pain machine..I think it is beautiful. I think it was made around the 20's, which means even if i never sew on it, it is almost a 100 years old and is a great addition to my sewing (soon to be) room.
    Edit- i stand corrected, it looks identical to the 15-91 thank you for pointing it out to me =)
    quiltin cowgirl ,,,, wow i didnt know you could drop the feed dogs how do you do this ,,,, Dottie Bug
