    Sure, $900 seems reasonable to me... after all, it has a 6 Amp motor (really?!?) and the owner hates to part with it. If s/he loves the machine so much, maybe s/he can draw a heart, or spell some love initials in the DUST that is all over it...

    "I have for sale 99K Y Series Singer Sewing Machine (Manufactured June 21, 1924) Roughly 5000 were made that day. This sewing machine is in excellent condition, works flawlessly. All parts, belt, light and bulb are authentic Singer. Comes with the Singer 6Amp motor that it was sold with. The machine was assembled in Scotland, and the motor in England. This is a portable unit that takes up very little space. This is a one of a kind collectors item that I hate to part with. Asking $900 o.b.o. considering several factors such as age, amount still in existence, condition. "

    5000 that day! Super factories!

    "5000 were made that day", but this is still a "one of a kind collector's item"? Maybe for collectors born on June 1, 1924...

    Although the Singer 15 "wings" pattern machine you have is way too new to be part of my museum, I do have a friend who likes these vintage "electrified" models. Would you be willing to accept an offer of $50 for that machine? That seems to be about the standard for machines in this incomplete/unrestored condition. Cash of course.
    Thank you for you consideration,
    Steve"

    we'll see what happens

    I got a phone message from this person expressing a willingness to meet to buy it.

    PM me if you are interested Joe.

    It's sleeping- definitely a night owl. I find such ads annoying. To me it's like looking at the garage and guessing about the car inside. Could be almost anything in mystery condition.

    You'd probably have better luck "sawing" with it.

    $5000!? What in the world? That is way beyond dope smoking and dreaming, and into sheer lunacy.

    It's an interesting concept, and I almost bought one for the novelty of it, but the CL seller got stupid and tried to turn it into a bidding war.

    I can't even comprehend how someone could pull that price out of their rear end, though.

    I really wouldn't give him $50.00 for it considering what it needs, but let me know if he responds with any sort of intelligent comments. He was very evasive the first time he responded so I really didn't expect to get the machine.

    It isn't like you are playing Donkey Kong whilst you sew. The Game Boy is used for sending stitch patterns and fonts to the machine, as well as creating your own stitch patterns.

    It's similar to what the fancy, computer connected machines do these days.

    I give them the benefit of the doubt: "White Rotary" really must mean "Singer" in some language somewhere in the universe

    My mom does Sears kit homes id'ing and it's VERY common for any kit home to be called a Sears house no matter what it actually is.

    I assume it's the same thing with Singer. All sewing machines are Singers.
