    Pin rash is a horrible thing much like baby rash. I don't know why they had to do this in the olden days but a lot of machines have them. My Franklin I am doing for the tut has pin rash.

    I really don't know the value of the treadle with that lovely cabinet, but I sure would love to have it! It's been on CL for a while so maybe they'll relist it as a cheaper price? That would be nice.

    Yup. Stand up straight and pull your pants up. That must be gold plated. A real gem.

    The Red Eye for $50 seems like a nice deal... maybe I have a soft spot for Red Eyes? (disclosure: I just listed a RUSTED Red Eye on CL for 20 bucks and no interest. lol)

    In EXTREMELY RARE cases....yes. In this case? Nope.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    My DD and I own two 29-4 patch machines. Paid $150 for the first one and $400 for the second, it came with lots of needles and leather pieces. She uses them to sew patches and do leather repair.

    this is near my sister and trust me...they had to go to ebay because nobody in that area would pay more than $50 for this one! In fact my sister bought a lovely White for just $25

    Either that or were checking their prices against ebay. What's up with that lately!? I've been seeing high triple digits for machines that I know aren't worth that.

    Of course if they are going to be worth that, I guess my retirement plan is in my sewing room. 13 machines and growing.
