It's been relisted at the original asking price. I am quite close to New Baden, wonder if I could get a pickup discount?

I'd love one, but that's out of my budget ATM.

And the stool is separate for $150 more?

Can't figure this one out at all, look at the date and time of the event, and just the general write up...

Granny's keeping these ones for a while it looks like:

The Vickers is in nice shape, but not -that- nice...
Edmonton is out to lunch, I haven't even seen this many over priced machines on Calgary Kijiji adds. These people are going to have these for a while at these prices.

It's a 31K, made in 1916 (so not yet an antique). They are known as the tailor's machine. Perfect if you make clothing.

Exactly what Mike said. I'd love to get my hands on a nice industrial. My neighbor alone could probably keep it in constant use with the projects he asks me to do on my quilting machine.

Edmonton is often out to lunch for prices. My 2 best deals so far have come out of near Calgary, or at least further south than Edmonton. I haven't even posted this week's wishful thinkers. . And yet, I struggle to liquidate fully serviced machines here.

Though I should mention that it was a Calgary ad that I saw for someone parting out a Singer accessories box for $20 a piece. Last year I think.

I need to find a bobbin winder like that one has. It mounts onto the “boss” of the machine and runs on the balance wheel rim. That would come in handy on “JR”, my Singer 31-15 Treadle. It’s the first one that I’ve seen like that, so thanks for posting the link.
