Couldn't believe the asking price and that it was still there on the 2nd day of the sale. People must be blind for it not to have been bought already. Wooden case in excellent shape and no smell. YEAH!!!!!
    Congratulations on your find today!

    It was interesting reading the ads, some are asking a lot of money for sad looking machines. There are some interesting machines in your area, lucky you. Did you pick up that Crinkle machine that the guy said he was going to throw away?

    I have a Pennecrest 3000 (1965) and would like to get a quilting walking foot for this machine. I think it has a low shank and wonder if they make a universal one to fit the older models. This one has cams for embroidery stitches,a buttonholer, and 3 position needle. I hope you will be able to help me. Thanks so much,Jeanne

    If it is a low shank then any universal or low shank walking foot should work. I think Hancocks and JoAnns carries them even Walmart.

    Did you get the cams to go with the machine? It sounds like yo have a wonderful machine and if you would like to post photos of it we would love to see it!!

    Just $2200, and you only need to drive a couple of thousands of miles.:)
    No that one isnt like mine but man they are proud of it!

    Hi! My name is Beth and I'm new here. I'm not sure if this is where I write my post or not. LOL!!!
    I found this Board the other day while looking for something else and noticed the Vintage Machine section. I've been reading ever since.
    About 12 years ago I found my Singer treadle at a garage sale for $25.00. We put the belt on and it worked but I've never done anything with it.
    I cannot find out what kind it is. The serial number is 3149690 which makes year of issue 1879 but there is a panel next to the needle bar that says "Patented USA Aug 2nd 92".
    I meant to take pix earlier when it was light out but forgot.
    Shopped today for the cleaning items and a leather shoelace to replace the belt I broke last night :( (It was really brittle.)
    Thanks for the GREAT board!
    Beth
