    It would also depend on the availability of parts for that machine, if any are needed.
    I comes with shuttle and bobbin. I could drive to pick it up. I have a Free #5 and they look quite close to each other in type.

    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.
    Good idea. I found one on a blog:
    http://susannaryan.blogspot.com/2010...-pun-here.html
    It has a straight stitch plate and foot. Check out the bottle of oil -- it looks like a perfume bottle.

    ""Robert's Rebuilt Singer Machine" (a previous owner has attempted to obscure the first two words)" ??

    I think the cabinet is similar to one Macybaby is looking for, except missing the appliqué?

    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.
    Seems like I am suddenly seeing and liking the old girls with the "robot" face plates...

    This poor thing looks like the machine and the table were both hosed down with black spray paint. . . http://fortwayne.craigslist.org/atq/3996943943.html

    Good grief. That is the most somber looking ad ever. That price doesn't help any, either.

    And they don't even know what it is, other than "Vintage the Singer manufacturing machine 1950". The word "sewing" is not in the ad, though I think ebay will find it if someone searches "sewing machine" because it's in the right category.

    Today I discovered that it's worthwhile to search "sowing machine":

    I agree!! Gorgeous! I'd be all over it if it wasn't several thousand miles away and a border crossing to contend with.

    Pawn shops are always good for amusement:
    http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ512776479

    $400? Really? http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ512752823

    This one though, I like... http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ512580486

    Sheluma, this one's for you: The manual is a 431, but that's not a 431.... looks like a chain stitcher though: http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ512544196

    Ha!! I totally missed that! It's in beautiful shape as far as the decals, so possibly not a lot of use, but still.

    It does look nice. I found a 15-clone Montgomery Wards machine at the Salvation Army, and it was in excellent shape as well, though I payed a heck of a lot less than $400 for it.

    I don't think a lot of people are going to pay $400 for this one either...

    Speaking of....I guess this one's a steal at $300...

    Though the cabinet is neat conceptually...

    There was one of those on the local Craigslist selling for $70 for the cabinet and a Singer 600.

    The Singer 600s & 603s can be good machines. They are closely related to the 401 and 500 internally in all but the bobbin winder. They are pretty much all metal machines. I can't get wild about the bobbin winder...
