    Default Wanted...

    If anyone wants to sell me a treadle operated singer sewing machine that they no longer use, I'd be interested...

    If you get two offers I'm next in line. I missed buying a MINT one in a Perth charity shop last year. It was a hot day and I was too lazy to carry it back to the car. It had gone by the time I got back to it. It was only a tenner too.

    I've got one but you are not getting it, however, the singer repair shop in Paisley usually has them very reasonable.

    If there is something I don't have I need to know now, Christmas is just round the corner

    I have my g-grandmother's 1898 Singer treadle, but one thing you seem to have a lot of in GB I'd sure like are old hand crank Singers. They are seldom seen here - and are top dollar when you do see them.

    I think they still make those in India .

    We have one it was cheap, but took some setting up to make it run correctly.
    It'll be right, trust me, I'm a Yorkshireman.
