    The 40K I found on ebay for DD4 arrived today.

    I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
    No word yet from the seller.

    Please notice that although the machine itself was wrapped a layer of bubble wrap inside its case, the case itself was "cushioned" by only a handful of plastic grocery sacks.

    1950's plastic is not the most pliable out there.
    HELLO.. brittle anyone?
    I'm just a tad bit annoyed. :thumbdown:

    Skip the seller and go straight to file the claim.

    Oh my goodness, that is terrible, so sorry that has happened to you. I had the same thing with something I bought that arrived in 100 broken pieces and luckily the seller refunded my money but it was nothing so precious as this gorgeous machine. I hope they come to the party and you find another another one, I would be heartbroken and very annoyed.

    It only just arrived this afternoon..
    I'll give them until tomorrow to respond.

    I don't want to be a witch (nicely put) about this..
    all I'm asking for is for them to make it right.

    The collectable aspect of the machine is greatly reduced, in my opinion by having a destroyed case.

    I'd like a refund and paid return postage to return it to them.
    Their choice.
    Not too much IMHO to ask.

    Yup, same thing happened to me on a Singer 99 from E-Bay. I was refunded by the seller. Then I got a Featherweight which I really wanted anyway for a few $ more. No case, but my husband can make me one to tote it!

    Awful, if you don't hear from the seller by tomorrow, late tomorrow afternoon, I would send another email to the seller telling him/her that unless you hear from him within 24 hours, you are filing a claim with eBay. Sometimes things happen with people and they can't check their emails; on the other hand, in this tech age, there's really no excuse...at least within 2 days.

    Did you pay with PayPal? Isn't there a method that you can reclaim your funds????

    I remember when you posted the first pics of this cute little machine!!
