    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I am afraid I know some people who would actually love it as a 'still life' picture.

    My eyes just grew to five times their normal size!!
    For some reason it's the fine mist of gold paint that caught my attention first... I think I'm just imaging the vandal, spray can in hand, thinking 'YES - this will do perfectly!'

    Not sure about the "cocktail" but what REALLY frustrates me is when they are selling a cabinet machine and only show pics of the Cabinet. It shows how they perceive it, as a piece of decorative furniture...

    "There are some attachments and the original manual is in a drawer but oil soaked. I have produced a replica that is like new but the original gives the date and number of the machine during production. (See photos)"

    They made a replica of the model 66 manual, even though the oil soaked page said 115. LOL!

    I guess they're pretty much the same machine, they're both black.

    Here is our local "I won't quit" seller. This machine has been up for months at this price. I really do not believe it is an 1873 machine and they would not share the serial number with me.

    They are merely collecting email addresses to sell.

    Steve, I went to look at a treadle machine recently that was being sold on eBay. The seller said to me, "When I told x I was selling it, he said you'd better take the machine out and have a look..." They had been using it as a TV cabinet and never even looked at the machine (which was rusty and broken). Then she said, my parents have got one that's in beautiful condition; I asked if they would sell theirs and she said no. They are using theirs as their TV cabinet as well and never want to sell it

    Go for it! I rarely sit on them more than a few days unless they have those pesky sewing machines in them.
    Seriously, I can sell cabinets all day long, and I can sell sewing machines all day long. Pair them together, and they sit for months.

    I'm finding the same thing - I have some nice machines and nice cabinets - I give them their pick - they pick a case or no case but for sure they don't haul away a cabinet... Cabinet are ssssooooooo not a selling point.

    I got one like that and it is fully equip it was bought by a lady who never used it. Her sister didn't know why she bought it but I pd $600 for it. She really is pretty.
