    Same seller from Porter. Instead of Where's Waldo, it's "Where's the Singer?"

    Singer 1900 Sewing Machine w Floor Pedal Shelf - $995 (Porter)

    Original all parts with dark wood cabinet and full metal floor shelf pedal. Must see to appreciate. $995. Items in storage hard to photograph but will gladly show. 918.557.8944
    Wouldn't take much for the machine to be in better shape but no matter how good it ain't worth the BIG $$$$$$$$$$$

    Very old singer sewing machine (Tulsa Area) Very old Singer sewing machine. But negotiable on price. .

    Selling my moms sewing machine - it is very very old, but is in mint condition on the machine itself.
    Cabinet needs some TLC, but is not damaged. Restoration would be very easy.

    Getting way too many fake requests to remove ad from Craigslist... it will never be removed till it is sold.
    Any request to remove it will also be ignored. However I will consider anyone who shows up to look at it
    as priority. Those who are wanting to buy it without even looking at it must be fake efforts as I also wont
    sell blindly to anybody either. you will have to pick it up, there will be no effort to deliver or ship it.
    Will sooner keep it forever than go thru all of that.

    Am considering restoration, but hoping to find value on this.
    Estimated per seeing similar for $850 minimum as is, or $1500 if restored.

    Must be cash only, and you must pick up.
    You can test it all you want where it is in the garage.
    Negotiable though. Any request for delivery or non-cash. will be ignored.
    Now is the time to get a very high quality Singer Sewing machine that needs some TLC.
    This unit is in a lot better condition than similar newer ones that sold for a lot more.


    Serious inquires only... Will consider taking it to auction when restored, and I already know it well sell for more there.. But thats next year, Im selling some of my stuff to help on cash to help put more $$ down on a new house.

    Picture to be provided asap.

    HHHMMMMMM false advertising? Good deal though. I wonder if it works to advertize like that?

    What a nut job!! What is the deal with people going on so much about "serious enquiries only"? Is that a CL thing?

    I figure you couldn't see the lettering on the treadle clearly against the floor, so they grabbed whatever was closest that was a light colour! .... OR.... they went all the way back into the house to go and find the perfect thing because they thought it was really important, which would be even weirder

    So, if the tension's borked, there's no bobbin, no belt... how does the person know that it "still works"?

    I report ridiculous ads to the quilting board.

    Speaking of which:

    Missing a slide plate and a drawer pull. Is that a Singer? I can't read any words on the machine - way too blurry - but it doesn't look like it says SINGER. The cabinet looks like there is wear around where the machine goes. The petal doesn't say SINGER either. Was that the original machine or something else? Yeah something isn't quite right. Maybe it is a knock off.

    Ahh.. I only just saw the larger picture. Definitely weird. The whole machine body is a weird shape, plus the badge looks too large as well. Maybe that's just my limited education

    See, and my first thought would have been how about if I sweep this floor to remove the straw and turn a light on....

    but I'm weird that way.

    My gut said that it was a 3/4 machine. Their dimensions always look a little weird. It's a rather ornate cabinet for a little one though. Still, it's a funny shape, the pillar especially, to my eye. I don't think the cabinet is a singer. Can't tell on the machine either

    Not sure whether this is Giggle-Worthy, but...

    Isn't this an amazing-looking machine?

    I have a Minnesota with a snazzy cabinet... It has a 3/4 size head, too.

    Do you mean weird in a "doing a reasonable thing and charging a reasonable price for it" kind of way?

    I think it is to make the details on the pedal show up. It looks like this cabinet has wooden legs? Did Singer make a cabinet like this? I saw one in an antique/junk store a few weeks ago and it had wooden legs. The cabinet had a Singer in it, but it was an electric with the centennial badge. I thought they had taken the iron legs off and scabbed on some wooden ones.
