    It depends on the condition. I have one ain't worth squat - it is a parts machine. I have a couple probably worth a couple hundred. If you find one worked on by Ray White or Mr. Arbuckle you might expect to pay $500 or so with all the attachments. The attachments/disks are expensive.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I really enjoyed your contributions of pictures and photos. I think we can all learn from this information.

    I have 3 of these IRON LADIES.........the 128 is in great shape, no rust, no dirt, etc..........came from a display at a quilt shop going out of business ($63.00)............the threadle is the Sphinx design, got it for $50.00 with the treadel cabinet that is in pretty rough shape (water damage, I think), and the little brown one, a 301 from Anderson, SC came for a thrift store for $32.00......it sews so well, have been using it all day on a quilt.

    Cool Pfaff 60 treadle picture

    Here's a picture of my new toy. Its a Pfaff 60 straight stitch treadle, industrial cabinet that came from Germany. Everything is in very good condition, has some attachment feet,bobbin case and looks like it uses class 15 bobbins. I got it to sew using the hand wheel, sews a lovely stitch. I can hardly wait for the belt to get here so I can start using it.
    I'm the second owner. I bought it locally from someone on Craig's List.

    Picked this one up from Craigslist today. 1902 Singer 28. She is missing a few parts but otherwise the machine is in pretty decent shape, the cabinet, not so much.

    Oh quiltingweb, I just LOVE these decals! In fact, I want to get one to display near Josephine, my 127 treadle with Sphinx decals. Unfortunately, all the Franklins I've been finding are in treadles too, and I just don't have the space. (I also like the decals of the Franklin Rotary with their Art Deco lines.) And yours was FREE! I'm green with envy over here!

    Don't know what the C-Clamp is for, but the other is a tension wheel (the thread goes between the two disks). It almost appears that it may well go with your machine, because it does not seem that the tension wheel is on the machine.

    Hello,

    I recently purchased a 1936 singer model JB970671 with a singer 40 cabinet for $25 & a 1915 singer model G5580946 for $50 dollars. Both are operational but the electric needs to get the timing fixed and the treadle needs a new belt - I think That said, I don't plan on using the machines, they will stay tucked away in the cabinets. One will be used for my pressing area, I have a small ironing board that will rest nicely on top and the drawers will store fat quarters. The other one will be used to place my computerized Pfaff which I use everyday. It is totally inspiring when I quilt - to think who and what were made with this little peice of history! Love, love them.

    Ginny, those are both lovely machines, and you got great deals on both of them. I really like the cabinet for the treadle -- are those RAF decals on that puppy? Very nice indeed!

    Correct! I posted photo of what the RAF decal looks like, which stands for Royal Air Force in honor of the Brits.

    Thx for the info! Didn't know. I am going to have to set them up and take a closer look at these decals. Which one is the model 115? The treadle? Or the electric?

    Regardless, I wished they made things like they use too. MDF and plastic will destroy the world.

    The treadle is the 115, and you've GOT to sew with it at least once!

    I haven't been here for a while. WOW! I love your Franklin! Free is cool too.
