    It is not a toy but it is a very cute 3/4 size machine - if anybody wants one in a bentwood case for much less....

    Looks like a little Singer 28 or 128 with a Godzilla finish on it, of course, could just be that it's that crusty!

    the greensboro machine is a 128,, that face plate and back plate would have also been black leaving the factory , a 28 is the machine that looks like it has a price tag hanging on the head

    Not vintage but grrrrr.... This is the kind of thing that makes me so mad!! Someone wants to upgrade their machine, so they list it on Craigslist for $700.... Quick Google search shows the same machine is less than $600 online!! So I wonder, who wants to spend $100 more for a used machine? Did they get ripped off when they bought it, and they honestly think $700 is a good deal? Did they do ANY research?! Looks like HSN had the machine for $999, so I bet they bought it there! But they should have gone to Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/SINGER-XL-400-.../dp/B004YEZLVG

    I think the missing slide plate may be in the attachments box. Hard to make it out but sure look like it.

    No, no more room for cabinets, LOL. It would be a nice addition to anyone's collection and a really good price.

    Just looking at the thing, it is hard to believe that they ever used it once purchased.

    1969 was the year I started in with treadles, at that time whites looked just like that one, The two I got last winter were just the same,, in fact many of my singers acame home looking as bad or very close to that one, for 25 $ you'll never beat the price,,,, If you really know a white rotary you would be buying it ...

    I belong to another forum about farm animals and the goat section has a thread just like this one (funny CL ads) except that it's about goats. The people posting on there are as funny as everyone here!!!

    CL seems to attract some interesting people trying to sell stuff. Years ago we lived in rural southern Indiana and there was a local radio station had 'swap shop' every evening. It was so much fun... Some of the ones I remember: "I have a stud horse and she leads real good" or try this one: "I have 5 'bagel' puppies for sale" I can't remember the other funnies but maybe sometime I will.... Can't you just picture 5 bagel puppies???

    This one is a bit off on there pricing , but a great Idea for building your own table,,,They have bought industrail legs, the a piece of counter top with no back splash,,, if you blow up the photo, you can see they cut the top out of a standard type cabinet ,,,, and inset that into the counter top...
    quick and easy, takes the standard home owner tooling..
    but you can buy this type WITH a clucth motor brand new @ 250
