    For $300 you would think they could post a picture! Wonder if the husband knows she is trying to sell it?!?!

    and. . . "I do not need someone contacting me to tell me how to sell my items." - Obviously she DOES!!!!

    I think, sometimes it's a matter of people who shouldn't - touching things they shouldn't. Some people are great with a level and a drill for instance. The people we bought this house from? Didn't hang a single curtain rod straight. They also did wiring, carpentry and painting with equal skill levels.

    Some people shouldn't disassemble tensioners. I'm one of those people who knows now that I shouldn't have disassembled that main spring clock all those years ago....

    That one's so rude I wouldn't respond even if I HAD to have the machine. I couldn't stand being in her house listening to her prattle on like that.

    Uh... what did that machine retail for toward the end of its run? I thought it was lower than that....
    It sounds like a jackhammer too. I heard one run in a shop a couple years ago.

    ETA: Yup, HSN had t for $329

    I would only consider one if it was given to me. Not worth paying for IMHO. Won't be long before more will be showing up on CL.

    Whoa Nellie is right Caroline! My dad bought me that machine on 7/5/77 for $349.99, I still have the original receipt. My Dad always believed in buying the best, thanks Dad! Nice to see the machine still has value and people still want it.

    Hmmm. I think I will put that Kenmore model on my mental watch list. Amazing that it is sort of like a classic car, it still has appreciating value.

    Were there words like industrial, heavy-duty, sunbrella, boat tarps, leather, etc. in the title or description?

    That's a really popular model. I found a thread at one point I think on Pattern review where they were talking about it. Pretty much universally loved, and considered one of the best "Kenmore" ever made. I had one here, it was a nice machine, if a little complex with the cams (the part where you could change how it looked by adjusting a lever or dial or two), but otherwise very newbie friendly too.

    Thanks. Guess I'll keep an eye out for that model, since people seem to go cuckoo for it. Is it because it is rare, or that it is a free arm machine?

    I picked up an 1802 for $10 from Craigslist with pretty much the same amount of accessories, though it didn't have the embroidery hoop gizmo, or the electric scissors, and it isn't a free arm machine.
