    Is that a Singer remake? The decals just don't look right to me.

    Yes it is. Made in China. See the feeddog drop knob on the front of the bed, just past the upright arm?
    That knob is the giveaway.

    When I don't see a price I figure they just want an arm and a leg - after all it is gold plated.

    This one doesn't really have a machine - he just wants you to feel sorry for him and give him some money...
    The Ad:
    "old singer sewing machine (greenwood)
    I need the money just moved. 350$ obo please contact me via email also still works"

    I'm glad their email also still works...
    No pic of the machine - you can imagine that one...

    I don't see a price on this one but I love the pea green color. My granddad had an Oldsmobile that color, and when he bought a new one he gave the green one to Mom, about the time I started driving. I liked driving it and it would HAUL.

    Once again, I am wanting to ask where they got the impression that it was a Singer. http://chicago.craigslist.org/sox/atq/3839519397.html
    Here too. http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/atq/3879665343.html

    And there is an epidemic of "Ask-whatever-you-want-syndrome" here.
    http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/atq/3860111115.html (great discription!!!)
    and, http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/atq/3886796447.html (Is that pedal supposed to flop down like that? It must have been used in the dark.)
    and, http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/atq/3886815380.html (Must see,... only from across the room)

    All sewing machines sing. So does my 18 month old DGS... does that make them singers?

    Grant; I really like the cabinet on the first link. That's a nice looking one and yes it's frustrating that all old machines are Singers.
    Miriam, I agree with you that they sing but some are better than others.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Saw a setup like that at a garage sale the other day, though it wasn't anywhere close to that price.

    now my DGS, Wilbur, would love it if you could lift that lid and watch it make coffee...

    That's a well-educated guess and probably correct.
