    Glenn, it looks like you had a very successful trip up to Indy to see Miriam. You got some great machines there, and I'll bet you were a great help to her in the process! I love the little hand crank. I'd like one like that too.

    Glenn your machines are lovely, but when are you going to show off that Two Spools. Is it an Eldredge or a National? Either way it's the same machine. I find the Two Spools very interesting machines that are wonderful machines for piecing. Enjoy them all!

    WOW! I WANT this machine, but there is no way I could justify spending $2,000 just because I want it!

    Nancy, I thought I saw one like this on the Modesto CL about a year ago for around $200. It would take a special collector to pick up this one at $2,000. Most folks don't have the space or interests in these machines, even at $200.

    Fun to look at though.

    Here's one that was gifted to me this weekend. I was the first to respond on CL so she let me have it. It came with a vintage, Singer cabinet that needs a total restoration. It took me several hours to clean it up, put on a new belt and repair the stuck feed dogs. 2 parts missing, though. I need to find a bobbin winder tension unit with screw, for the bed of the machine. And it's missing the light. I'm leaning towards finding either a silver, vintage light or if I have to, buying a repro light and painting it red to match the logo. Anyone have extras (a light or tension unit with screw) they'd want to sell me?

    Candace, I could use a few of those myself. Your pictures don't come up on my computer. WAH.

    I'm finding that price to be a leeeeeeeeeeetle high! Could be wrong, but I'd bet it didn't appraise for that much. Not only that, but 1872 does NOT "pre-date Singer" who started in 1851.

    That being said, it's a pretty machine, and would be way cool to own!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Was that a 301? I told my wife what the seller said his wife said, and she said the wife was as dumb as a rock.

    I agree with your wife and that is a 301 from what I can see. I'd be on that like white on rice if I lived close enough.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    You and me both Chris! Geeze, what a nice little outfit!

    Charlee I know that Singer started around 1851 and the person who posted the ad doesn't know much - but, who cares! I still want that machine! It is so awesome looking! I love the weird looking machines!

    Too bad I have my quota of machines right now. That 301 in Dayton is a fantastic deal... Too far anyway.

    I've called about the 301, but there was no answer. I left my name and number and am impatiently waiting for a return call. I love the cabinet and want a black 301. I am trying not to send an email as the ad said no emails. Come on, telephone, ring.

    Okay, call me Impatient, but I called again. A woman from W Virginia is looking at tomorrow, but they don't make connections or she doesn't want it, it's mine. And no, I'm not driving from Northern Michigan. My son is working in Middletown, OH which doesn't look very far on the map. Can't have the big black truck coming home empty. Wish me luck, y'all.

    That's weird. I wonder why?? What are you looking for? Lights or the bobbin tensioners that mount on the bed?

    Pat, I posted a heads up on that one about a month ago. I'm surprised it is still listed.
    Also still listed is the Singer 224 with motor no treadle for $50 in Japantown SF. That has been listed for a couple of weeks.


    The decals on that Davis look very nice, cabinet looks sad. I would ask lots less.

    Oops, sorry, haven't been keeping up! The decals did seem nice on that one, and I think it's the VF model that takes normal needles (but am not completely sure, since both of mine are older Watertown Davises and this is a newer Dayton model). Wonder what's wrong with it? Too bad the pictures are so lousy.

    It's like mine, Davis NVF; and yes, it does take the standard needles 15x1. Those Davis treadles are nice to treadle.
    I already have two Davis NVF. If I didn't, I would see about it.
