Wow! I'd like to know how Grandma got all those machines because that's some heavy duty sewing power you've got there. There is a market for industrial machines ( I'm assuming they work) check prices on eBay, craigslist, etc. Since they're "found" machines and you haven't spent anything on repairs, if you don't expect the moon, you may be pleasantly surprised. Please check back and let us know what happens and good luck!

Seiko - STH-88L

PFFAF - needle point sewing machine

U.S Blind Stitch N.Y ( can not find model no on this one )

Brother MA4 - B551

thanks in advance if anyone can assist
You might try searching the machine website to see what they are used for.
Also might try etsy or ebay to see if there are similar ones to what you have and see what the prices are they sell for. Your location may also play a part in the final cost.
My Daddy had an industrial sewing machine as he did repair of the school district's bus seats and lots of furniture overdo's.
