    I saw this listed for sale, the current owner says that it's really hard to crank. The asking price is $50.

    Should I rescue this little treasure or pass?

    Really is cute...if you just want to use it as a decoration...sure...why not, but if you really want to use it, I would test it out and see just how hard it is to use. Depends on if you have the extra $50.

    It is adorable!! Even if you kept as a decoration in your sewing room, it seems worth it to me. :)

    Buy It. I have one of these, my Mom bought in for me at a sale. It is on a shelf, behind glass. Everytime I see it, I think of her.

    If I saw that for $50 it would be in my car before they changed their mind.

    Even if it doesn't work well, It will be worth more than the $50. Besides it makes a cute decoration for your sewing room.

    If there is not time pressure on you, check the ISMACS site for model & serial # info. look at a picture of one & be sure there is not a part missing. Is there supposed to be a clamp for holding it down ? if buying for later resale, it must be pristine condition for collectors. for yourself, you can ignore a few scratches.

    Yes, yes, yes. Place it on a small table with a pretty piece of fabric that coordinates with your room and a lamp so that it will be highlighted in the evenings. I think it is lovely and will be worth a lot more than $50 in the future.

    Yup, it would be coming home with me and I don't have room for even a scrap of fabric!

    Thanks everyone for your input. I just picked her up, so she's been rescued. I've named her Belle, and she's a little rusty, but oh so cute. I'm hoping that with a little TLC she'll work again.
