This is a vintage (possibly 1951) sewing machine, made in Italy. This machine is sewing perfectly, as it was made to do. It sews straight-stitch and zig zag. There are three needle positions: Left; right; center. You can create a buttonhole with just the machine, but I have added a Singer buttonholer that makes it easier to make buttonholes. It is a low shank machine, so more machine feet are easy to find and buy, if these two are not enough for your needs. One distinctive thing about this machine is that it is heavy, internally all metal and weighs 35 pounds. This $65 includes the machine, carrying box and accessories. If cared for, this machine will last for another 72 years. If you are interested in using it in a wood table, I can add the one in the last two photos to the deal for $25 more. The wood table could function as an end table or night stand when the sewing machine is not in use.

This machine was made in a time when you were expected to maintain your sewing machine yourself. The manual has illustrations showing where to oil. This machine can also be installed in a Singer treadle table without any alteration. The manual explains how.

Cash only. I live half-way between Laurel and Park City. I will delete this post promptly once it has sold, so please do not just contact me to ask if it is still available. Send me an email with any other questions. I'll try to respond promptly.
