    Thats right kids I am on the hunt for a certain vintage machine right now and I am thinking you guys might can help me out. I am looking for a Russian made Singer machine made at the Podolsk factory when the Communist took over.

    The chances of me finding one here in the states are more than likely slim to none but there has to be one out there somewhere. So thats where you come in to play, I need help in finding one. If you run across one then let me know because I really want one of the machines. I am including a couple of photos of a Russian Singer so you now what to look for.

    That is a gorgeous machine! I have never seen any machine like this in my State wanderings of CL and I don't go hunting on ebay very often. Once I do see one rare machine like this, I will send you a message. Any other machines your are interested in? Be glad to help.

    Okay I am good but not that good, here is Russia's eBay site. Everytime I put in the Cyrillic version of "Vintage Singer Sewing Machine" it converts back to English. :evil:

    I dont understand it I type out the Cyrillic version on my WordPerfect then copy and paste it and it comes back as English. I will try one other thing and that is change the language in my Windows XP on my laptop and see if that will fix things.

    Impressive! Just seeing the machine quickly brought back memories of my trip to Russia especially St. Basil's Catheral. The machine is truly beautiful. I hope you are successful in finding one.

    Price range will be dependent on the condition of the machine. I want to find one that the decals are in really nice condition but again if I can find one that half of them are legible I would jump on it also. So the price is up in the air really.
