    There are more but I'll stop here.
    For Pete's sake, make up your mind and change one of the ads or delete it! I fell off the turnip truck a while back, not yesterday.

    I hadn't noticed that they were the same machine, I just noticed the ridiculous price both sellers wanted. There's also an ad (not listed here) where the guy is trying to sell a Minnesaot A plus other things to provide Christmas for his child. A reasonable request, if true, but the latest date on that ad is yesterday's. I think it's a scam!

    Don't you love it when they say "comes with a table"....without the "table" it wouldn't work....so, is it not a necessary component? As opposed to something it would just sit on? Wow...people are dense!!! LOL

    I loved the ad where it said the needle still moves up and down so obviously it must still work. Hellooo!!! I've several machines where the needles move up and down but they don't sew because they need some more work done to them.

    COQ, that second listing, the 99, They aren't bidding on the machine as much as they are that extension piece! Still...that's pretty high...as nice as it all is!

    That's interesting--neat way to design an extension. I bet they didn't hold up very well over time if it was just that one hook supporting it.

    Wow! What a gorgeous cabinet! The machine is unique. I'm showing my ignorance here, but might it be worth what they're asking?

    I don't know what the market is like for this type of machine, but it does seem like it could be worth what they are asking for. I'm sure at one time this cabinet and machine would sell way over a thousand.

    I would say strictly a collector's piece. I am sure it's worth it for its rarity, age, condition.

    Super special 301A

    Now this one is special. Just read the entire ad. Now this machine may be worth what he's asking but.... I just don't know so I'll let other experts on here decide.

    But, if you're looking for something portable, have I got a deal for you! http://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/atq/2780368780.html.

    Umm...I just don't see how you could convert a sewing machine into a pottery wheel? http://dallas.craigslist.org/mdf/art/2779149122.html.
    I'd rescue the Singer 306 just to save it from being turned into a pottery wheel?? How is that even possible?
    Maybe I need some of whatever the seller is on?? ROFL

    This one is still listed - I called about it. She wanted to know what questions I had -I asked if it has a spoked wheel (I want to make a hand crank machine) - no. I asked what she wanted for it, she said to make an offer, I said I would need to see it first, but from I could see $30 tops. She complained that it was a rare antique machine. I told her that it wasn't a 15, it was a 66, I could tell by the design and from the serial number I told her the year and that 50,000 were made from serial numbers assigned during just that assigned day. She really wanted to have more (a lot!) - and to have me close the deal before even seeing it in person. I have no idea of the condition and she wasn't willing to let me check it out. She told me to text her when I decided. Haven't texted her and I don't believe she will sell it. I did buy a La Vincendora from eBay this week, so I need to play catch up and restore the NewHome and put a crank on the new one before I even look at any others!
