I picked up  treadle a couple of years ago  for the base and drawers and toyed with the idea of doing a restoration on the machine..I have decided to not work on the machine and do not want it.  I have never used it and cannot comment on it's condition.  I am just hoping someone could use it  even it  is for parts. I also do not want the wooded table tops .  I am  in the southwest suburbs of Chicago and this would need to be picked up.

Hi gmaz,
That is a nice looking Singer 66 "red eye". Looks like it needs a bobbin and a slide plate, both are easy to obtain.
That one would most likely clean up nicely, and make good stitches for decades to come.
I hope someone steps up to get this one. Well worth picking up.

If o wasn't stuck here 24/7 I would be after it to restore. Probably wouldn't take all that long.

If I understand the OP this is an offer for the machine and the top? of the treadle table.  It sounds like the drawers and iron legs are not included so someone would have to make a box or a table and set this machine up with a handcrank or motor.  Am I reading it right?
