    I have a suspicion it might have been the word "industrial" that did it. New industrial machines sell for thousands, so perhaps the buyer thought they were getting a bargain in a slightly older model??

    1906 Singer Sewing Machine W/ Cabinet
    Good Condition
    Looking to trade for a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. It need not be new, just working and have the 3 most common attachments. (Whisk, Flat Beater, & Dough hook.)
    Guess they gave up sewing for cooking??

    Funny, I gave up cooking for sewing. I think they have it backwards. :-)

    This is definitely a VERY cool table. I don't know what a reasonable price is for a Necchi, but I'd pay a bit of premium for the table.

    "Pin Rash" = definition: When a person wraps a length of fabric around the neck of a sewing machine and uses the fabric as a pin cushion.

    Results of "Pin Rash" = Pins poke through the wrapped fabric and scratch the finish on the neck of the sewing machine.

    This machine has a SEVERE case of 'pin rash'. Normally, on a Singer that has pin rash, only the "S" and "i" show damage. This machine has it so bad that "S-i-n-g-e" and most of the "r" are gone.

    LOL! Like the old Wendy's Commercial "Where's the Beef!" Where's the machine? Who take a picture of the bottom of the foot controller?

    Sure would be nice if they shared a picture of the machine - ESPECIALLY since the "AH" number they showed is a 7 digit number and the "AH" list I have only goes up to 6 digit numbers.

    For only $120, you would think they would just keep it. $120 won't get them very far even if they are able to sell it.
