    Where's the Crank? "Some oxidation" ??? The rest of the text in the ad is a strange way to sell something.

    Potentially pretty cabinet but looks like it is on crutches. And then they have the gall to suggest that it would look nice with a pretty new electric machine sitting on top...where is the beautiful grand old lady that belongs INSIDE that cabinet?\

    good grief - I wonder what a good offer would be on one of those? I have 3 to get rid of - I highly doubt if anybody will spend $500 no matter how good shape...

    ok - yup it worked last time he used it - must have been in 1970
    kind of pricy for a project machine

    "BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT IT HAS BEEN MANY TEARS SINCE I USED IT."

    Those "tears" must have fallen right onto and all over the machine.

    That looks pretty nice, and the table looks decent. I might go $50 on it if it worked. Maybe a little more.

    You know, those are exactly the type of chairs I had imagined before I hit the link! I thought a square top on the treadle legs though; the oval shape is different!

    I guess in 1950 they wired the light to the front of the machine? It is a time travel machine... a 1920's machine with a 1940's owners manual...........

    Singer Treadle Sewing Machine
    appears to be from 1920's
    Has original Singer series 1940's manual and other original documentation.
    Includes original key to lock the drawers
    Still in working condition.
    Has other associated sewing hardware.
    This is a rare and highly collectible item

    I guess he went to the school of "part it out and get more money for each piece".

    no sign of the machine.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Seller's definition of Great: It would be GREAT if you gave me $700 for this!

    $100 sounds like a bargain until you look at the pics....
