Items For SaleI have found that I rather badly need to get some dental work done and since I don't have the money, I am selling sewing machines.
These are going for the best reasonable offer.
They will need to be picked up or ponied from northern Wisconsin and I can bring them to he Loosen and Lube or River Rats TOGA to get started on their way. Let me know what you are interested in and I will get pictures for you. My sister has a camera and is willing to help. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
1939 Singer 3/4 Treadle with two heads.
I will include the 1939 model 28 with manual in Dutch that came with the treadle base and the 1950's model 99 that I usually use in it. All of these items are in excellent condition, clean and ready to use.
1886 Singer IF or 15-1, whichever you prefer to call it.
This is clean and in good working order, in the old style treadle with wooden pitman. There are some decals left, (little yellow flowers) and there are extra bobbins. No attachments.
1901 Singer 27 with sphinx decals.
Needs some work but is in good condition. Center drawer of 7 drawer stand is missing. I have not seen this particular cabinet anywhere else, but it is an open side model with nice carved appliques. The finish is very dry and about gone from the top, but it's solid with no veneer problems.
1912 Singer 115 with Tiffany decals in a seven drawer treadle with embossing on the ends of the cabinet.
1916 Singer 15- with Tiffany decals in Drawing room cabinet. This is in fair to good condition, with both head and cabinet needing a little TLC, but will be very nice with just a little work.
1921 Singer 66 redeye in a plain parlor cabinet. Machine is excellent, cabinet needs minor work
1920's White Rotary in parlor cabinet.
This machine is set up for dual operation. It is a treadle, but can be operated electrically using the treadle pedal as a foot control. I would not use it electrically without having the wiring looked at. Otherwise it is in good condition.
1934 Singer 15-30 with added hand crank. RAF or wings decal. Excellent condition in a beautiful bentwood case.
I also have a few heads only
J-15 with Wisconsin decals - has warranty and accessories
Singer 248 zigzag with attachments and 300 series cams that can be used in Singer treadle base.
Singer 66 with textured non glare finish
Singer 99 with textured non glare finish and some blued parts
2 Necchi Supernovas that can be adapted for treadling, one green and one pink
J-15 Montgomery Ward zigzag machine can be treadled in Singer base
J-15 New Home Zigzag can be treadled in Singer base J-15 White straight stich can be treadled in Singer base

Wanted: Willcox & Gibbs Chain Stitch MachineI have a bunch of needles in my Boye Case so I guess I need a machine.
Must be complete and working. Does not need to be pretty.

WANTED FOR 1888 New Home 'A' type Treadle MachineDesperately need a needle clamp for this machine to enable it to sew! The needle bar is flat but judging by the few photos I have been able to find, the actual clamp is rounded. Any help or advice to complete this lovely treadle would be very much appreciated.
Please email me, Margaret email@example.com.
I live in the Scottish Borders, Scotland, UK
White rotary treadlein the mission oak cabinet. $75
Sews a very nice stitch. Has it's accessory box with feet.
I'm only the second family to own it. Email for photo
Likewise located in the SF Bay area.
I can hold a bit for a pony express but need house space, so not indefinitely..
WANTEDBobbin Case for Singer 319W.
My 306K bobbin case does not seem to fit. I purchased the green 319W emachine, and it arrived without bobbins or bobbin case.Thank you.
Looking for a 201 with an aluminum body to convert to a hand crankIf you know of some other lighter weight machine that could be converted, I'm interested in that too.
The condition of the body and electrics is not important. The only requirement is that the machine sews a nice stitch (or will with small adjustments).
Also looking for a Featherweight to convert to a hand crank; same requirements as the 201.
WANTED2 drawer pulls for an 1882 White.
The pulls have round black wooden knobs and fancy round gold metal facing covers.
I can send a pic if you think you have a winner.
Thanks for looking.
Bill in VA
Wanted Singer 99 and/or 201....with aluminum body. Neither has to be a hand crank (though it would be preferred) but need to be able to have a hand crank added.
