    Maybe, but with shipping, it will likely be over $100 by the end of the auction.

    It would also depend on the availability of parts for that machine, if any are needed.

    The HC looks like it has no "finger". It attaches to the stop motion knob and the bed of the machine (not to a HC boss). Also, they said "Mounted on oak wood base/table/stand (looks like the base of a portable machine)." I wonder if it doesn't fit the base or if they just didn't set the hinge pins in properly.

    I wish the pictures were better. I would be wary of the rust, but maybe that's just me.

    I'm in love with this, but the price is kinda high. Anyone familiar with this model? Brother Pacesetter circa 1956 or 1957. I'm wondering if there is any plastic inside.

    Nice. I'd like one of those, too - it is old enough I highly doubt if there is plastic - aluminum maybe.

    I'm in love with anything that's inside its case with all the bits like that. Cool case too!
    It's one of those ones where I would go and see it, take a screwdriver and a comfortable amount of cash and start to find all the usual dirt, lint, threads and stuff that would be expected and wear a very concerned look on my face throughout.

    I have one of those I'll sell for $6. Of course it needs some TLC... AND I doubt if I will get any takers.

    I like the name of this one... Electro Hygiene... I bet is is a good one.
    Electro Hygiene must have had some reach - from what I can tell there was a vacuum cleaner co with that name, too.
    I have an Electro Hygiene that looks like a Singer 128 - kind of a cute little black machine - well made.

    Now I know I will be in trouble with you all here, I had a Brother Pacesetter of the plastic and computer style circa 2000 or so. Love that machine of mine, and if this is it's ancestor I would be one it in a heartbeat! Helps that its so cute.

    Bye the way, I sewed onmy pacesetter it till just this past spring. The shop I deal with couldn't believe that it lasted all that time. With the new ones 5 years is considered a life span.

    I would buy the Bell if I lived near there.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
