    Hmmm the cabinet is a Singer Model 40 just like the one I have that my Singer 101 is in. The 101 was made in 1931. OK, if the friend dated the sewing machine as a 1919?, I bet it is an electrified machine.

    That machine is a 66, made most likely no earlier than the 40's, and could be as late as the 60's! All that fluff he wrote only serves to make him look like a fool...

    I bet those CL posters don't have any idea that we have a thread devoted entirely to their misinformed, uneducated, completely full of BS, over inflated priced ads and that they give us such enjoyment!

    Yes, they have no clue at all. But don't disclose it, sure would end our enjoyment for sure.

    You know, if they did just a little bit of research before posting their machines. I'm sure QB would pop up in some search. It generally does when I'm googling just about anything quilt or machine related.

    Some people do... Since there are the "what is my machine worth?" threads from first time posters regularly.

    ok is it just me or are the pictures of this leading me to believe that someone mounted a 1950s cabinet top to a treadle cabinet? Something strikes me as odd with how that machine is sitting in the cabinet.

    Jenn, that's a pre-1900 "Fiddle-base" Singer VS2 in a "Coffin top" cabinet. Decent price.

    this last one in texas, some one replaced the top, the hinges have been move a good inch to the outside , it's missing the center brace, of course the wrong head ,, can't see if the flywheel guard is there ...

    I Think with those drawers that one also had the crosshatch design on the 7th drawer

    http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/atq/3084945048.html You're talking about this one John? I disagree. That's a straight leg treadle, and it looks normal to me.

    The top looks off center to me in the photos, thus why I thought it might be a modern cabinet top in place of the original, especially since the machine in it is more modern than the cabinet seems to be.

    Nope...that treadle cabinet is from the 50's I believe. I could be wrong about the top, but I don't think so.

    Something bothered me about that cabinet top too...the legs look ok, but the top seems weird. It may be the drawers aren't plain like I've seen on other straight legs, or that it kind of looks like one of those "new" or "repro" 15 treadle cabinet tops.

    The fiddle bed is a Singer, it just looks like it's been repainted at some time.

    I've been watching some local CL ads from a collector hereabouts...interesting to see if they get any bites. But this one left me a little speechless. Um...where do I sign up? Heck, I'll even throw in a good cleaning and a treadle cabinet!! http://wichitafalls.craigslist.org/atq/3086301463.html
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    wow someone's mighty proud of that red eye!

    since you're checking out the local ads....I'm curious which machines they have. 2 for 50.00each? http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/grq/3072113564.html "Antique Sewing Machine, in cabinet, one Dated 1886 - Only $50.00 each. *(2 available)"

    Ha, ha...sounds like they want to get someone to their sale or something. Could be a treasure or a dud. I hate it when ads put something like "old sewing machine" with no pic, name, description, etc. They are in the same frustrating league as those who show a closed cabinet and never open it up with the machine showing--another common theme around here.

    well it just goes to show we just don't know what we have.....as far as to the true value of your machines,,

    so many of these sellers are young and grew up in a family that never used a sewing machine, granny dies, mom never used one so they get it , it could be a 60's or 70's style , yet to them it's antique, ye sit's older than they are..

    They don't have any idea on it's value, but the yhave been told new it cost over $500, which in most cases is true,, soif they ask half the cost of new it's a fair asking price..

    The flip side of that ,, yesterady I replied to a local add, old sueing machine ,, no photo ,, nothing ,,, just old machine, I ask the what where when question/s she replied giving those BUT it was sold, she put it on facebook and sold it before her add came out on C/L, the price $24. ok it's a 53 ? 66 in a hall cab.. The best part she has to deliver it ,, meaning she will at least put 10 $ in gas , meaning she got 14 $ , you know very well her and hubby will go,, hit the hamburger stand ,, meaning they will be in the hole selling that machine.

    AND she has to wait til this week to get the money ..
