    Nah, it is it's own piece of junk. I know, I know, somebody has one and just loves it. It was the beginning of the end of the good machines. Some of those can be repaired some can not. If the front plate comes off, the gear can be replaced if not, it can't.

    So, what do you suggest I do with a Singer Stylist 457 with gears that have crumbled? Built in 1969. I have the manual and buttonholer. I don't really NEED to have this machine. I don't love it...can I just donate it to a sewing machine repair guy for parts or something? I know I can get the gears and replace them...I just don't want to. What should I do?

    Look...only 500.00 and you can own one of the first machines ever made...complete with electrical and all. I emailed this idiot long ago informing them how misinformed they were but they keep posting it day after day anyway.

    Yikes! There is one of those just posted on my local cl for $300 with tons of feet, walking foot and cut and sew attachment. If I had the extra cash right now I would pick it up myself.

    Looks like a bunch of machines I found in a junk shop about 100miles from the city. I think I mourned so much for them, I made him an offer he wouldn't accept. Probably good for me.

    Poor guy. I called about an ad on cl with many singer machines. This guy has 20 of his moms machines to sell, mostly in bentwood boxes. He has no clue about any of them. He has 1 221 with no case or attachments and his dad is insisting on no lower than $600-700. I told him I couldn't get anywhere near that, lol.

    This one looks good. Overpriced and someone ruined the cabinet.
