Saw this one a while back, I think the selling price was around $100.

What's wrong with this picture?  (other than being sideways--can't figure that out)

Ok, I'll play. Missing tension, spool pin, bobbin winder and belt guard. What is that hole in the wood under the wheel between the belt holes? The whole wood assembly looks odd.

Yeah, when I first saw this, my initial thought was, "boy, that base looks kind of messed up...but it's sort of clean and shiny-looking and...uh oh...there's a hose.  Oh."

This is good. Have everyone look for a model 3-110 and maybe I'll get a lowly 221 on the down low. HaHa!

You have a youtube account right? Offer him 50 bucks and postage for it.
(Find out then how dumb he is.)

That's funny the ad is still up.  I should have downloaded the video.  Even my husband laughed all the way through it.  Of course he probably knows more about sewing machines than he wants to, since I talk about them all the time.

I thought this video might have gotten some not so nice comments, that would have prompted it being made private.  I even thought about commenting myself, but there was so much wrong, I couldn't think of a nice way of saying it, so I said nothing.

Okay, not a machine, but it is kind of nice veneered wood (and another of my interests from long ago.)
Had a groan moment reading the headline, though. Close to me. I actually own one sort of similar, but my brother is keeping it for me because of space issues. (even before I started accumulating sm's)

The comments started about 10 minutes after I posted the video on a FW collectors group. Knowledgeable historian he may be, but doing little to no research on the machine before he made a public video like that, well, he asked for it.

BTW, you can see more in his Ebay ad. He's edited the ad at least once, he put the correct model in the title.

A few years ago I sold a table top version for $50 in not much better condition. I don't know if it worked but the tubes lit up when I plugged it in. The guy walked in, threw the money at me, grabbed the radio and ran cackling like he had just found his Precious. I think I priced it too low.[smile]

The only thing that keeps me from posting this in atrocities is that I laughed...

118929115_3700452939983240_4690267099140008075_o.jpg 

Available in Davidson Maryland for $150 the text of ad suggests that it "Has been converted into a nice table/piece of furniture" which I found funny. I would like to think that it originally was a nice table and piece of furniture. It may have been really nice for many years... and then neglected and someone came along and stripped the veneer off the top and front door and sanded down the underlayment and gave it all a nice coat of poly. It probably does look better now than not-so-long-ago, but to suggest it was 'converted' is balderdash, and to allude to fact that it's 'now' a nice piece... is certainly a matter of considerable speculation! Don't get me wrong, they did a half decent job with what they had, and they saved it... but it was better than this originally and not once was it converted.

1886 Singer
For sale - functioning singer sewing machine with table from circa 1886. Electric light & motor still work. $300 or best reasonable offer. 
1886yeah.jpg
Ok I get it, folks fixate on the numbers on the motor. They stand out, and are easy to see.  But seriously who could think that this is from 1886.  Even if you didn't know what a sewing machine was, you can tell this is not from 1886.

I don't usually point out people's errors in their ads.  It would take all my time if I did, but I might send a nice message to this person.

I don't think that's too far off the mark price wise. 99's are bringing $100 easy these days, and the cabinet is probably worth more than the machine.

I had a post here with a photo of a Bernina saw converson, but I didn't read Eddie's restrictions about copying his photos first, so I deleted the post. But, take a look at his site, where he shows what can be done with an old Bernina beyond repair, almost at the bottom of the side:

I don't know where to put this.  I gave sickening laugh when I first viewed it.  Then I realized it needs a bit of wood filler and some sanding so maybe it should be in cabinet restoration.  Then I read all the ad and saw this was a first item seller - explains a lot.  Or maybe it just belongs in Horrors, atrocities and nightmares.   I'll let the collective decide.
