After a little research then searching Craigslist etc... i picked up a Singer 211G165 (no reverse model) with a table and a box of stuff for $360.
It hadn't been used for 4 or 5 years, so after downloading a manual and searching google i got it oiled, setup, running and stitching what it think is good.
Funny every specific Google question i searched led to this forum, so i figured i better join learn......
here's a couple pics, if anyone can tell me something about it please do. how about the year? inside one cover it says made in germany
