    $25.00 for a rocketeer......

    FREE? Did you say FREE? You lucky thing, you!

    My grandmother had a Singer treadle that was converted to electric. I put my name it for it when she passed away, but I don't know what happened to it. :?

    I now own a, "new fangled," Slant-O-Matic (Ca. 1960?) that I would never, in a million years, give up.

    My new "Boat Anchor" is a White, and the guy that gave it to me said the man who gave it to him had made a coffee table out of the irons. I thought at the time it must have been a tall coffee table. Maybe it was one of these short set ups. I have never seen one. My White was made in Sept 1903. Thanks for posting this !!

    It's been cut down!!! Look how close to the floor it is...

    Maybe for a child?
    I wondered if it could be raised up some way.

    I can't remember if I posted pics of my 185, so here is Julie. The girl I bought her from got it from her mom, and her mom's name was Julie. I have only sewed a few feet with her, but she makes a nice stitch. And I love the color!

    Yes, I paid $20 for it

    Pedal looks like it was never used

    Case is a bit beat up, but not horrible for its age
