    Red face What do you get for $15?

    Two 401A's!

    One was $5 and the other was $10 - purchased at different rummage locations but on the same day.

    Cams 1-5 and various attachments were included with the $10 machine.

    My girlfriend was positive I couldn't get 2 cabinet machines in my SUV. I told her I have gotten 3 in there before in one trip.

    I have NO idea where I'm going to put these........ plus....... I already had a 401A.

    I will probably oil them up a bit and send on to new homes.

    Shari,

    Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed them. Pick # 1 answered a question we had about the drip panel on our blond cabinet.

    And we realized that IL is not the place to find bargains on sewing machines. We need another 401A, my wife and I keep arguing over whose machine it is. It's mine, no... it's mine ... we need another one.

    OMG! Milwaukee. I've been looking for a 401 for my daugher who I converted to vintage with a 201. If you're seriously thinking about selling one or both, please pm me.

    I think you got a really good deal. I have one just like those that I bought in 1961 and that was top of the Singer line at that time. Seems like the price was about 300.00 which wasa lot at that time. Mine is not for sale and I hope my daughters will treasure it one day as that was the machine that made their clothes as the were growing up, including prom dresses.

    You got a great deal with those machines and the cabinets. I got a 401A for FREE! It was in a yard sale out in the country this summer when it was soooo hot here that people didn't go outside unless necessary. It had been priced at $1.00, I'm told, and didn't sell. My hubby had told a local shop owner that I liked old machines, and his mother brought it in for him to give to me. It's just a portable, but that's OK with me. All of my machines, vintage and newer ones are portable. I'd love to get one in a cabinet some day. Love your cabinets, especially the $10.00 one.

    Loved seeing the pictures.
