    The least the seller could have done was post a picture of the buttonholer valued at $150. . .

    Yep. A sowing machine. A machine for sowing. Spreading seeds and making buttonholes. That's the life.

    Help! Should I buy this? It might be already gone.
    http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/atq/4002070275.html

    What do they mean by "The machine itself now turns on but doesn't operate through the peddle"? How do they know this? Is it possible to plug the motor in directly, not thru the controller? I'm wondering how much I would have to spend to get it working.

    I can't tell if there are any decals left but for $75 it doesn't matter. Also, the spool holder is missing.

    SteveH, do you have one? I'd love to get a hand crank or treadle, but they're expensive. I have to check out the needles it takes.

    It's a bargain, all right, but why do the idiots all call them "peddles". It's actually easier to spell it right!

    I make it no secret that I like Pfaff's. This one is in less than pristine condition and they have the nerve to say,"You will be hard pressed to find one in this condition for this price.". There is another one on CL for about 1/3 this price of $600 and it is in much better condition too. Who are these people?

    Grant I don't know who they are but they are EVERYWHERE... ignorant. I home schooled my kidos. One thing I wanted them to know was how to find information they needed and evaluate that information. They are all good at that for sure. I'm afraid schools teach facts and figures and what to think. I taught my kidos HOW to think for themselves. They just don't know much... LOL

    I replied to a Craigslist Ad for

    http://kansascity.craigslist.org/art/3997643971.html

    This is what I received back.!! I have read it 3 times and still do not fully understand the message he is trying to convey. I can not even imagine what communication with this guy would be like in person.



    The machine belongs to a friend of mine that does not have a computer ! If u call the # I listed he can send some pics to u on ur cell phone ! His name is Kevin ! I CERN the machines and they need a good home ? The machine u want is made of metal ! No plastic parts or pieces on it at all ! It looked like it was in very good condition for its age ! I'm sure tha by the looks of it it was made in the 50's or sixties ! It told him that it was a highly sought after machine for some one interested in sewing heavy materials dot to the fact it had all steal gears and a good motor and heavy belt ! I hand opiated it from the rear ! It all moveced as it should ! It was mint condition ! Call keven ! He is good guy ! He will Probobly give u both machines if u buy the first one listed ! They even had the original foot pedals ! The steal machine was in a nice table aswell ! He will give u good deal if u give them good home ! Tom ! If that is not what you are looking for I have a nice singer ! But it is so old it has no revers ! But it is mint ! It has every thing ! Lower bobbin needle pedal in full operational order ! But I want $100 ! It was made in 1821 !

    Maybe when they said that "you would be hard pressed to find one in this condition for this price" they meant no one else is selling a dirty machine without a case or cabinet for this much money.

    Brunswick Girl - I laughed and tears came out of my eyes. Honestly, that was just hilarious. Every precious word. I am still giggling.

    Still, looks like you could bargain a few Necchis for a good deal from 'keven'. He is, after all, a good guy. ;-)
