Hi John. Welcome to Hotrodders.com. I assume they come with tables and motors. Do they have clutch motors or servo motors driving them? 145, 545, and 1245 are all basically the same. The smaller the number, the older the machine. I learned on a Pfaff 1245, and they still make that model. An older 1245 will go for $1200 from a dealer who has it in good working order. That's too much for the 145 or 545, unless a lot of stuff (like extra feet) comes with them. Pfaff makes excellent machines, and they are worth more than the Singers and Consews of the world.
No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
