    I had to. I responded. Likely nothing will happen, but what the heck.

    Said I had to have it, I've been looking for a FW with a potted motor forever!!

    Kidding.

    "Uh… that's a 15-91 like it says on the Original user's manual…

    Not even CLOSE to being a featherweight. A featherweight is a 1/2 sized machine, weighs 11 pounds, has a flip up extension to the left of the needle, has a belted motor, and is made primarily of aluminum. They also were only produced starting in 1937.

    A 15-91 is a full sized machine, weighs about 30 pounds, has no extension, has no belt for the motor, and is made of cast iron."

    The 15-91 is CERTAINLY not a featherweight.

    I've never seen one with the fancy scroll work on the stitch length selector cover plate.

    This one looks like it has silver parts where there are normally black parts. Might have to see it in person.

    Don't know if this is giggle worthy or not, but it has been listed several times at the same price. Not sure how rare the fold out card table is.

    "Anitque Singer Sewing machine is over 100 years old. Still in very good shape. Machine is useable. I have no use for it. Price is firm. This item sells for a higher price than listed. "

    $800.

    Not on this planet it doesn't.
    It's also a 115, Wings decal. Good chance it's not "Over 100" either....

    The cabinet doesn't say 100 years old either... I have a 1913 cabinet,.. it doesn't look like that.

    C'mon people!!! (sellers).... You want $800?? How about a decent photo?

    This one makes me think of some old guy in a chair on his front porch with a mouth like a cats bum, flipping the bird at passers by with a sign that says "$800 for a smile. Take it or leave it."

    But come on, it is a sowing machine. Wouldn't that make it an industrial (with all that sowing and all)

    It's in a van (maybe a 66 was considered portable in 1925, when women were *real* women)! The cabinet has been painted white!! "looks complete" (the empty slide plate hole is screaming "look at me!!"). See what I mean when I said that nearly all 66s are missing their slide plate?
    In case you're wondering, Googs are eggs.

    It's one of those "exercise desks". You try and write something, it falls on the floor, you pick it up and start again. By the end of the letter, you've performed a large set of touching your toes! $100 is cheaper than a gym membership.
