    How about this one:

    Twice what the price of it is new, and no pesky warranty to worry about.

    Perhaps not. I sent a "reply" to their ad:
    A friendly note:
    Walmart has this machine on sale for $115, down from its regular price of $127. Singer's site says it should be priced at up to $149. That would get someone a warranty as well. You may want to revisit your price.
    Or one of the newborn suckers out there grabbed it.

    Sowing machine will work in spell check ... strangely enough my husband and I own a company that manufactures sowing machines

    "You absolutely will not find another machine this pristine from the 1960's period"
    I beg to differ! I bet I could find grime all over it. I haven't seen a machine yet from the 60s that couldn't stand a little loving from a wash cloth!

    So that's what goes with my 90!!! You better believe it you can find dirt and grime unless it has been gone over it has dried oil or a stuck tension or something too. Seems like those perfect ones have something wrong somewhere or they would have been in use.
