    I'm sorry I messed it up.
    BTW Glenn has a reasonably priced REWIRED potted motor Singer 15 for sale. If anybody lives between Indianapolis and Huntsville give a holler right quick - he's headed south soon - I think he has a very reasonable price. Nobody smokin' anything. If you want it and need it shipped we'll pack it so good you'll have to get Houdini to get it out.

    actually good stuff... It would be a field trip for sure...
    Road trip to far away for sure. I sure wish someone on this board would snap her up. $25 is a great price.

    Poor little thing. Likely was not stored well. Those damp San Francisco salty fogs are not nice for sewing machine.

    This one is a good little 3/4 size machine made by Jaguar - it is not mine but my sister did get them down to $50 which I think is a good deal. Somebody needs to go for it - I think it zzs and some other stitches too.

    Singer has the centennial badge. Mostly, here in KC, they do tell you what they will take in barter. Interesting that this poster didn.t
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Muast be the lack of the usual accompanying patina (aka dust) that makes it so valuable.

    things "R" gett;n better and the price reflects..

    I swear the last 10 times this add has ran there price was $500


    I feel so sorry for that poor little pfaff hooked up to that big a$$ motor, spinning it 10 x's faster that it's desigened to do. but it should be ok since it's again semi industrail and only used a few times every 30 yrs or so.

    2 k LOL ok thats right . well 1200 that about the price of a pound and it's almost harvest time LOLOL....

    drop it down to 200 and they might be smok'n, but hell you can get a full time industrail for that price, none of this semi crap..

    about aweek ago I goy a 31 - 15 and am useing the last two night putting a king size together... I don't know how or why I bothered sewing these kings quilts without a full on industrail machine, It's just easy on these things..

    It's a decent Necchi Mira, but there's no telling whether the rods that connect the Wonder Wheel to the controls are still there, and the cabinet most definitely needs work. I'd say it's at least $150 too high. :-/

    I've seen this add before ,, They did have a photo at the time. seems like it does look nice.

    IF I were a real collector , I'd go for it because of it's name, in there last add they claim it was made in Portland ?

    keep in mind portland was a ship building port way back when. meaning there was foundrys lining the streets..
