    I checked the serial numbers = they are all from 1950.

    Weren't the remakes all from Alphasew? If that's the case, they wouldn't have Singer numbers anyway... I didn't know there were remakes of the featherweights, I knew about the 15s and 127s, etc...

    Okay the first one - doesn't remember how to thread it but able to answer questions; I think we should write them and ask "How to thread it" . . .

    2nd ad: the light distressing brings out the NATURAL aging of this beautiful piece of furniture. . . Wouldn't NOT distressing it actually show the natural aging BETTER???? Another case of a lot of words that mean nothing!

    I love it:


    -holding doors open in windy rooms
    -a place to cut photos on for scrapbooking
    -long term 'I have to iron this one day' storage
    -hiding snacks that you shouldn't have
    -covering horrible flooring miscuts
    -vacuuous black hole to dispose of things I can't identify or assign another logical place for
    -assuring people that at one time I was remotely domestic (aka Mother-in-law placator)

    But it's talents do not end there folks!
    add a leaf blower engine and you have transportation (will pass E test)
    add ice; a place for your libations at those cramped holiday do's
    move daily from room to room; BAM! instant work out machine
    hours of fun for the kids at soapbox derbies (they still have those, right?)
    don't know what to get that tough to buy for eight year old on your Christmas list? POOF! years of therapy!
    If you put your ear up to it, you can hear the ocean as clear as if it were 500 metres away
    Great revenge on your husband for that chop saw(still in its original box) that you consistantly have to step over in the basement to get to the dryer.
    Comes with a wide selection of attatchments and accessories that I couldn't begin to describe or even vaguely wrap my head around as to their use.

    Please do not force my kids to inherit it
    They have suffered enough

    1st ad, bonus question: Where do the bakelite cams go? Which "door"?

    2nd Ad - I'm distressed just looking at it. I think not painting it in the first place might have shown the "natural aging" a lot better. And that paint doesn't look distressed, it looks chipped off (look at the wheel)

    At our local Salvation Army, they have a Machine very similar to this one that they "did research on." They have a card on it with lots of information on it and have dated the machine as 1798. They are asking $375 dollars for it. After seeing it there for a couple of months, I talked to the manager and told her that there was no way possible that the dating of the machine was right and all the other information on the card is incorrect and that they will never get $375 for it. She thanked me and asked me what a reasonable price would be and I told her she would be pushing it at $100. A month later the machine is still sitting there with a $375 price tag!!!!

    They're out in force today:
    A 127: http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ530287094 $225

    A 99 only $500 seller obviously knows a lot about it: http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ530459658

    And last but not least, in fact the most "valuable" of them all: A 15 for $1000, love the background items too.

    Anyone in Melbourne want a nice green 319k in a cabinet for next to nothing?

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/singer-se...-/141077767657

    A clear picture would have made a massive difference in whatever it goes for.
