    Charlee, these willamitte's, I've look several times , all I find is that they were made for M&F, what I read could have been "M&F in portland" there Hq was in portland...maybe not meaning made there ...

    so I'll put this on the list that say's the gold decals were real gold LOLOL...

    ya no, it is true these are semi industrail machines. semi meaning = almost. I'm semi handsome in a frieghtliner kinda way ..

    Yep, can only see a glimpse of a blue sewing machine lurking in that cabinet. I can NEVER figure out why someone would advertise a sewing machine and not show pics of it. And the price is ridiculous.

    actually it is the one they used to sew the emperor's new clothes - otherwise it wouldn't be so expensive.

    I don't see a glimpse of any machine! I can't figure out why someone would bother listing anything and not show a picture of it.

    What I don't understand is...Do they really think their stuff is worth that much or are they just trying to scam people into believing that a tin of attachments or an invisible machine is worth that much? Are there people out there that will pay that much?

    That might work!
    We had a car for sale and we just wanted to get rid of it, so we listed it at a very good price. We didn't get any bites, so I listed it for a few thousand more and sold it the next day for more than we bought it for!

    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    This is the same sewing machine I learned to sew on! I was on a mission about 6 months ago, trying to find one. I found one in the exact same table as this one for $4 at Goodwill! Cost me $49.99 to get it serviced and doesn't have a manual or feet. So, for a $53.99 investment, I guess I am sitting on a gold mine, huh???

    so...i have this machine for sale for 300.00...its from the 1890s. here's some pictures, but they aren't of the machine I have, they're of some other machines... oh, and I really don't want 300.00. I want a dirt bike or something.
