    Should I call to see if this one is still available. Notice that it has the Puzzle Box, too!

    I'm not an expert, by any means, but it looks like a good deal to me. I would think the cabinet alone would be worth $75. Be sure to post if/when you get it and check it out.

    OH! I want one! IMHO it sounds wonderful! You would have a learning experience getting it all cleaned up & running. (Not complicated.) I've obtained some vintage electric machines & had a great time getting 'em running. Some day I'll get a treadle. Show us picts. if you get it.

    You just can't go wrong if you want a treadle. It looks like a good one for that price.

    I'd go for it at $75 especially if it has a Puzzle Box. My DD and I bought on like it last weekend for $100, but without a Puzzle Box.

    The 15's are really great for free motion quilting. If you are going to get a treadle, having a 15 is probably the best combination. The price is great!! We have $100 or more out here on the West Coast.

    Treadles particularily are being rehomed in this down economy and the price is fair but you may be able to do better with a little bartering pointing out the amount of work needed.

    That's a beautiful Singer 15. Just make sure it has the bobbin case. Great machine for sewing and free motion quilting.
    I'd go see it!
