    Though the cabinet is neat conceptually...
    I like the design of the cabinet, too. But the wood (if it is wood) is awful. I want one in oak, maple, or other light colored hard wood, please.

    They don't have any plastic inside?

    http://kansascity.craigslist.org/fuo/3988982776.html ~ I bought this for $10. It is missing the power cord from the cabinet to the outlet altho the seller swears she has it somewhere. Cabinet needs works, including veneer work, and needs major reconstructive work to be out back together so it'll hold together. Has a lazy Susan spool holder in the 1st drawer which the seller didn't know about. She did say she'd look for the cord but it takes a regular female end so hoping I can find something if the power cord decides not to be found. Could have also gotten a free kitten but DH said no emphatically.

    Wow! Just those needles are worth 10x what you paid! And there's an old Singer seam guide still in the package! I like the cabinet. I hope the kitten finds as good of a home.

    In the 4th picture, what is the part in the upper left?

    Sheila, it's the bobbin winder. The needles are older milliner needles so don't know if they're for a machine or hand sewing. Will investigate more tomorrow. I love those old seam guides. Very handy. I think it was used to make clothes because there's tape like for a seam allowance but nit a 1/4 inch allowance. Nice attachments too. I am pleased with the purchase and hope the cabinet is salvageable.

    Oh -- I hope there are some machine needles -- is this the machine that takes unusual needles?

    "May need some repairs"? Um, what was their first clue; the gaping hole near the stitch plate? Or the tuft of toilet paper trying to stuff the thread spool holder?

    That said, it does look like a cool machine.

    Dial-o-matic? What's to dial? The tension knob seems to be missing. it looks like they stuck a q tip in the spool pin hole and it fell in! But yes, it's kinda cool.

    I don't know if the machine takes unusual needles...yet!! I believe what you are seeing in the photo are feet and parts of feet. I hope to play with the stuff in the drawers today at the very least and get the cabinet plus machine into the hospital (my living room) today. I will post about the needle packets later. The machine came with a manual so that may clear up the unusual needle question ~ I hope.

    The machine does take the CC1221 type of needles. I believe I have possibly 50 packets of those almost all in one size. So far have only found one packet that's a different size. The machine manual is very interesting to read and the feed dogs drop for darning (yeah right) but also FMQ.

    Does it have a knob under the bed, like the 15-91, that drops the feed dogs?

    Mark;

    There is a thumb screw underneath that releases the feed lifting crank and renders the feed dogs inoperable. The stitch regulator is moved to the neutral position.

    I am wondering if this manual is also good for my other New Home Lite Running sewing machine and if that beast takes the special aka weird needles which I assume are no longer findable.

    "Infrared stylist for pentagrams"

    LMBO!! Other than that though, I suspect that the price isn't that far off of realistic, based on the original selling price...

    I'd say they priced it correctly at $1.
