I came across a Singer 211 White (Think its a 211A) with a table and new servo motor for $650. Can anyone tell me if this a good deal or not? It has a walking foot, large bobbin and reverse.

Thanks for any info.

Generally, a fair deal if it's in good condition.

Thanks! Sounds like they have several, and state they are in excellent condition and the servo motors are brand new. I have asked for some pictures and more details.

What are the numbers after 211A? Manualslib.com has a few manuals. Here is a good description of the various models.

Not sure. He is going to send me pics and more info friday. Seems like he buys industrial machines in bulk and resells them.

Thanks for the reference

Used industrial machines can be very worn since they may have been used daily to sew thousands of items at high speed. If they were purchased new by a saddle hunter, they are probably in great shape. I would want to check the play in the parts if I was spending nearly a grand. For $50, I'll take a chance.
