There is usually a machine or two in the $500cdn range and then lots above that. There is an old Singer with no foot on craigs today for $175cdn. No model number and the guy says it works. Has a 1/3rd hp motor, knee lift for the foot. Fairly new looking motor. Has a number of pictures but I am just posting a couple. My questions are, would this work for sewing sheaths. Is there anything I should be checking for when I see it? The guy said he used the foot from his wife's light duty machine on it and he was able to sew canvas and other heavy items. Should I bring a foot along to test it? I don't know much of sewing machines, so any help would help.
