    I don't think it's a coincidence that there are 0 hours on it since the rebuild. I don't remember... does a 237 have plastic in it? If it does, with that motor, the bang will be spectacular!

    Or something like the Singer book that shows you how to make lace on a straight stitch machine....

    I don't understand the lack of punctuation in so many of these ads.....do some Craig's List cities charge extra for that or something?

    Wow,.. and I've been looking for another 15-91. Of course the last one was 1/30th that price. I guess I'm still looking.

    What's the white thing in the bench with the cord? It looks like it might have a Singer badge on it...

    I wondered the same but I think that it may be a very old, and might I say useless, electric scissors. I had something that looked like that back in about 1970.

    Ahh! Thank you! I've never seen them before. I had a feeling they might be something like that. I guess there's a reason there's not modern version of them at the store these days.

    I've seen many a pair of these at garage sales. Most of the time, the seller will tell me that they aren't that wonderful mainly because most users wound up cutting the cord while using them! I do have a pair of battery operated scissors. I haven't used them in years, in fact, I'm not quite sure where they are!

    Ha!! That's funny, I wouldn't have considered that, but yeah,.. I had the same problem as a teenager with the electric lawnmower. Though, I think that might have been on purpose - Run the cord over enough times, you don't get volun-told to mow the lawn anymore.

    Possibly today those would be deemed "too dangerous" to be on the market by the lawyers.

    The knotty pine paneling in the background sure brought back memories. We had that same paneling in our house when I was growing up.
