    The second one you posted, the Necchi is not unreasonable for the machine in cabinet. The seller is not asking too much IMO.

    I have to agree Candace - seems like a good deal.

    Candace, I do agree that it's reasonably priced but DH would kill me and bury me with the ashes and bits and pieces of all my vintage machines if I get another right now, especially one in a cabinet. He has also threatened to start bringing home a Mastiff for every vintage machine I bring home. He wants me to thin the herd which I've agreed to do. Easier said than done when most need cleaning that also need rehoming. Yes he has way more tools than I do sewing machines but I've recognized the need to thin the herd prior to his asking.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    O.K...I think we were confused because this thread is basically to poke fun of sellers who have no sense of reality and one of your links really doesn't follow the theme of this thread. But, thanks for explaining.

    I almost fell out of my favorite chair looking at that price. He must be out of his mind.

    Yeah...I'd be concerned about anyone who tried to *plug it in* to make it run.

    Oh I wish I had a magic motor - it is truly rare. I wonder if his mother invented it?

    yeah - that one looks sort of like a very modified 185 or something - I bet those machines don't look all that good if they are using stock pics.

    "Vintage Hand Crank" model? isn't that a motor in the picture?

    http://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/hsh/2762558068.html

    I'd kill for the carrying case though. . . I bought a Red Eye at a garage sale last year but it is in a Pfaff carrying case.

    Stealing a page from Miriam's book....it's a magic handcrank! LOL If you don't plug it in, you could hand "crank" the wheel....

    I like that one to

    I do like that one a lot but the price is high but I think those machines do go for a lot, Hope I'm wrong about that though. I need a garage sale with people who just want a few bucks.

    I paid $15 for my Red Eye at the garage sale. It needs a new cord. The decals are almost perfect and it was sooo clean. I think $80 is too high.

    Looks like a Singer 99 - won't fit your redeye - maybe you can only hand crank because he means the motor doesn't work.
