Default Thinking about making a CL list. Need advice

I believe this is a red eye in need of help. $25 for a new project (since I just got Trouble sewing :-)

How about a 15-90 (?) clone for $30?

Is this a Martha Washington cabinet (with machine) for $15?

Yes, you are correct, that red eye needs help. If you are looking for a new project, it would be worth your while to do it, and the price is good. Does it come with attachments? That is a back-clamping 66, and attachments are not as common as for most others, although they can be found.

I never got a call back on the red eye.

I did get the blue clone. It came with a ton of attachments. Unfortunately, they were for an international. The lady who sold the machine said she had three machine and needed to get rid of some; one from Mom, one from sister and this one from the ML. She said she thought the attachments were for this machine. They aren't.

I also picked up the $15 white rotary in the Martha Washington cabinet. It was so beat up and sad I couldn't let it die slowly in this man's back yard exposed to the elements. I figured for $15, if I couldn't help her, I could at least give her a respectfull end. The cabinet is weathered. The top is shot. Hopefully my new son-in-law will be able to make me a new top. Got the machine out and cleaned her up. She's crinkled. The internet says she was born in the 1920's. A major surprise is she appears to be electric with a knee control. I need help to remove her from the cabinet and I'll be able to tell more.
