    Any opinions on the singer 9217? Is $75 a decent price?

    Sounds high to me I would look for an older heavy metal machine you should be able to find a pre 70 machine in usable condition for $25 or less unless you pick a popular model.

    It would appear the customer price of the Singer 9217 is somewhere between $150 - $350 depending on vendor from the research I managed to find. I would be seriously concerned about the condition of the machine if the asking price is $75. It would be wise to look carefully at that machine _in person_ to determine its condition. If it is from a reutable sewing machine repair shop that's one thing. From a private sale... move slowly and carefully.

    Check my "guidelines" thread in my for how to proceed. Other folks seemto have found it helpful.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
