    Ask a person who sells used machine. They could tell you what the machine is weath.

    look it up on ebay and see what the asking price is. don't factor in the extras, only what you were thinking of initially, because that's not what you're really buying. then decide if you think it's a bargain. you have to decide what it's worth to you.

    May I ask how you arrived at this figure?


    I can't find any of these machines on a "completed listing" search on ebay. pfff. I will try calling a dealer I trust tomorrow when he is open to see if he can give me an idea.

    Thanks for the suggestions. :)

    That package new runs about $2,500. And the Grace GMQ Pro frame is strong enough for a larger machine. The Quilter's Cruise Control alone is $500 and you do want that. It is a stitch regulator for quilting on the frame. I paid $1,500 for a similar setup used, only mine is a Pfaff with a Grace frame. Mine had just been serviced, before I purchased it though. If you can try out the machine and it sews fine, the most it should need is a good oiling and cleaning. Or maybe a new needle.

    You can buy this machine, brand new with free shipping for $900. The machine you found has not been serviced and it has no guarantee or under warranty. It's worth 1/3 the price of a new one with warranty.

    I have 2 Juki TL98E They work as long and hard as I want them to. They are heavy duty machines, I gave 699.00 for each. I have FMQ a lot of quilts on 1 - I keep the other in case I need it. I don't see how you could go wrong. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: My came with the straight stitch,compensating-makes a perfect 1/4" seam,FMQ feet. 2 screw drivers - 1 regular 1- special - you will need this one- a disc to put on the top of small thread spools and I can't remember what else, I'm at work and can't look.
