    They may have the case and just didn't think it was important to include in the photos... That's a good price for what you're getting, and if you check on ebay you can find a case for $50 to $60..
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    It looks great! Would you get an opportunity to actually try it out?

    It looks like a good little machine. Good luck and let us know if you get her. Don't worry about the case. I keep mine in a rolling Yarn tote from Michaels. It just fits fine, as the regular sewing machine rolling totes are too big.

    I bought a Featherweight on ebay, it looked good so I bought it for $240.00. When I got it, I took it in for my sewing machine mechanic to go over it. I ended up spending about 120.00 to get it up to speed. So for the total cost I think I got a decent deal, but beware there could be hidden costs when you don't get to try a machine out.

    I agree with Rosewood9. My first one I didn't get to try it out first but the sale was good and the machine too! Thank goodness! I have added 6 to my collection (all different) and bought local, listened to them and looked at the stitching and how the material feeds through. Ask to make sure their are no pits and scratches on the machine-other than minor wear from useage. I don't usually use the cases when traveling with mine. I have another softer case (from Cabella's) with pockets and more room to carry everything in one. Makes my life easier when going to classes or weekends away. Congratulations if you do get it!

    It looks like a terrific deal! I bought mine on eBay about a year ago, no problems except a musty smell in the case. But I can live with that.

    You can get cases on eBay, either new or vintage. And, you can find almost any part you need on eBay as well. A word of caution, though. I bought some new "featherweight" bobbins that don't work. They are slightly too thick and break the bobbin thread. So, if you need more bobbins, try to find vintage ones.
