Thanks for the link and info, greatly appreciated! What do you think of the Nakajima 181L-2? Is it a good machine if it's in good condition? which they say it is. They're selling it for $750 which includes the machine and table.

That's pretty pricey if it's from a private seller. Does the machine have reverse? Is the motor included? If it doesn't, I'd steer away from it and wait for something better

It does include the motor and it does have reverse. It also has a new hook, new bobbin case, new needle plate with feed dog and is completely rebuilt. What do you think? Is it still pricey?

Thanks for all your help.

If it was rebuilt by a professional sewing machine mechanic, it would be a reasonable price. Try to get them to come down to $700.

Nakajima 181L-2

Yes, the guy who is selling it is a professional repair man and rebuilt it himself and seems very knowledgeable. Do you think I should still talk him down on the price?

It can't hurt to try. $50 is $50. If he says no, pay him the $750.
