    Would anyone have a clue about this machine? It's a 15, I know, but it looks like one of the newer Taiwan ones, but in a bentwood case? This is confusing to me....????

    Looks like they mounted it in an old case, doesn't it....unless the numbers they are listing are not right.

    Is that one of the replicas that were made in the 80's -- the badge that is on it isn't actually a singer badge I dont think

    I just found this awesome group a few days ago and am only up to page 35, so I've got a LONG way to go but have learned a lot so far. The only vintage machine I have is one that my mother made my baby cloths with. I got it out this morning and worked on cleaning it up. I did not take it all apart (am Chicken) but did the best I could and am happy. I myself could never make this machine work. Mom said I did not have the right wrist movement !

    In the one picture I have placed an old iron so you could compare the size. I use this iron to hold down the end of my cutting ruler when cutting strips, so it won't slip right at the end.

    Have always wanted a treadle machine and will now look a little closer at the ones I see at yard sales. Even if it is a really bad one just so I can learn with it.

    crewsejm, what a cutie machine, but I can see why it might be tough to learn!

    I have not seen this machine in person yet. It comes in a box type cabinet, couldn't download picture. I really don't know anything about it yet. It belonged to his grandma. He is asking 250. What do you all think?

    crewsemj, what an interesting looking sewing machine and iron. Once you learn you will really enjoy sewing with the oldies but goodies. Kathie

    Don't know about the cabinet, but I got my Red Eye (machine only) for $25. It's not a rare machine/decal pattern. I think 2 others on this board picked up Red Eyes the same weekend. :)

    So, I guess it depends on what kind of cabinet it is and what that would be worth to you. How's that for a half-way answer?? :)
