Default Misplaced machine???

Im looking at a singer AB974444 appears to be a 1928 machine model 31. But appears to be on a 1970 bench. 1a0af69e-5035-4779-ba7c-340ac0cbd601.png

I will agree that the table looks much newer than the machine. That motor looks pretty modern, too. Should work fine.

Nice looking machine!! This beauty should do you a lot of service. You may be correct about the cabinet being much newer than the machine. Even the light fixture looks newer.

Leonf I just don’t really want another machine. I’m just figuring out my 211G. But this machine is awful tempting.

Is $100 a good deal? That’s the asking price. The clutch motor is worth the price.

I had that speed issue with the 211g at first but now that I have got her oiled up well I can control the speed really well. It’s amazing what a difference a few drops of oil will do
