    This one really confuses me: did Singer still produce the Sphynx in 1973??? http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/art/4233429034.html

    Perhaps you, Steve, could school them a little bit about their "Gold Mine" they are sitting on. . .

    To bad that all of these adds go away. This could have been fun to look at.

    you have to keep up I guess. You might start at the back and go forward until the ads run out.

    The clue is "Singer 25" a reproduction made in China. You can also tell it is a repro by the not quite right garish decals.

    The other dead give away (a little hard to see on this one, because of the crap on the bed) is the plastic knob for lowering the feed dogs.

    The decals on the RAF aren't that different than the originals. I almost got "got" until I spotted the knob. Then I didn't bother powering it up.

    One more little clue is the tag that says: "made in Taiwan"

    I think that this machine would likely be pretty good. I have had several sewing machines (all Singer clones) made in Taiwan in the late '60s and all were good machines. Chromed, quiet and sewed really well.
    Wouldn't pay that much for one (never paid more than $8 for them), but $250 for a brand new all metal sewing machine is probably a good deal if there weren't so many old ones out there.
    Hmm... wonder what I would pay for a 50 year old 222k still in its box.

    EDIT: Even though the manual might be written in 1973, I think the machine might be newer: Grant was quite correct - Barcodes weren't around until 26th June 1974 and weren't common until 1980 (love your work, wikipedia)

    Nice machine and cabinet/stool. Too bad they went nuts on the price.

    "Has vertical drawers on the left hand side for sewing notions."

    Wouldn't horizontal drawers do a better job of holding things in?? Aren't vertical drawers technically shelves?
