Port Angeles is outside my normal range these days. It is a nice drive when the weather is good though. I wish I could go get it for you.

This is not a "giggles" but it's interesting. Never seen one of these and it looks like one I'd like. But, it's way over my budget. Is it more common than I suspect?

Interesting - that 190 appears to be a left homing machine -

the company that made this one for Singer made others for other companies - so while there may not be a lot with the Singer name on the front, unless you like Singer oddities, it's not anything worth near that price as far as a working machine goes.

It looks like a giggles to me. It's a Japanese domestic machine for $400. How is that not funny?

Is that an odd sized machine? Or just distorted pictures?

I'm guessing distorted picture. Did anyone ever make a 3/4 size model 15? If anyone has one I'd like to see pictures. Any old black sewing machine is an industrial model these days. Compared to some of the modern plastic ones out there, they probably seem that way.

OH.
I can't find a point to the chair and planter. They could have been so much more creative using the base for a cradle and the treadle pad as a rocker.
