    Question Thinking About This Machine

    Found this White model 651 on our local classifieds
    http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=218...wing%20machine
    Can anyone tell me about this machine?
    Is the price fair?
    The seller tells me that she plugged in and it worked and it has two bobbin cases but no other accessories.
    I don't want to waste my money but I love the idea of this machine! LOL

    I'd pay that in a heartbeat for that machine. It's awesome!

    I'd be on that one like a bee to a flower! Neat machine, and you can find attachments!

    I love the color and the retro look. For $30.00 I would have to have it.

    OK, ya'll have convinced me! LOL
    I will give her a call in the morning and hope to pick it up if she still has it available!
    Bye the way where would I get an instruction manual and accessories?

    Hi Cathieinut. I'm in Utah too. Murray area to be exact. I love surfing KSL classifieds. Don't worry, I won't go get that machine! Definitely post more pics when you pick it up!

    You probably won't need a manual as it looks pretty basic, and the attachments will all be available based on if it's a low or high shank machine. They're standard and easy to get. I would assume it's a low shank machine as my vintage White is, but good luck!

    If it were not so far away I would add that machine to my collection, I think I would name it The Green Hornet

    Picked up the machine yesterday evening and it is still in the trunk of the car LOL
    I am going to be doing a quilt shop hop for the next couple of days so I will post a report on how the machine works in a day or so.
    I am going to have to buy some class 15 bobbins for sure as my Viking uses it's own brand of very expensive bobbins.
    Thanks for the encouragement and I am still hoping someone will have a manual they would be willing to share with me

    I have a question - what makes a vintage machine vintage? Seems like I see fairly new machines being called vintage. I'm asking because I think all of you have given me the bug and I want to look for another machine. Went to a few sales last week but didn't know what was vintage and what was a good price. Any help out there?

    Nancy, "Vintage" is relative. For most of us, "Vintage" is pre-1970....I'd have said "pre-1960" but there are some pretty good machines from that era (The Rocketeer, etc) that I consider to be vintage as well.

    Technically, the word "Vintage" should be accompanied by a year, as in: "Vintage 1950", or "Vintage 1933".
