    I have bought out deals like that before - well the deal I got was a different mix - they all need wiring - they all need a lot of TLC - expect to smell cat pee - no cases - tables do not go away once they are in the house - people leave them and take the machine - that said - I have LEARNED a lot from the hoard - an awful lot - I have been pleasantly surprised at how many of them have been able to work - maybe less than 5% did not ever work but then again I'm not done yet. All in all that lot would be some real work.

    That also said it is a 5 hour drive one way from my place - with gas prices it would jack the price up something terrible. It might take two trips or involve a truck rental. I think I'm going to pass on that one.

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Best of luck to him/her. A lot more than I would have been willing to pay even if I had the time to deal with all those machines.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
