    So I contacted the person to let them know that they were the owners of a rare movie projector type sewing machine....

    He wrote back thanking me and saying he got the pictures messed up for this ad.... he knew what it was... yeah! BUT it is still wrong online....lol

    Sorry but those tractors are ugly. I'd buy that machine for 15.00 just to rescue it though.

    LMBO!! I guess technically if you turned the bracket upside down, it could mount.... I'm guessing it has a "shredding belts" problem though, with the location of the bobbin winder. Why on earth would "Singer" design it so badly? Looks like a replacement motor too, so the bracket could be just completely wrong.

    No I can't imagine making a tractor of this machine. I have a New Companion and it sews great and use it often makes a wonderfull even straight stitch. Mine is in a parlor cabinet.

    Maybe the motor turns backwards.

    You know how it is when you "just want it gone"... Of course, that's how I feel about most of the $100's in my wallet

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I don't see any sewing machine either! Nice cabinet though! I found one like it a few years ago that I had made into a bathroom vanity.

    Good eyes!

    I have NO interest in these machines. The machines I am interested in were considered Vintage/Antiques when these ZZ's were new..

    I love the Art Deco case/ sewing table/chair for the Pfaff. I wouldn't mind hanging that - pretty and lots of storage in the chair. Still - pricey and too far away.
