    Is it a good deal? Not in my opinion, unless it comes freshly tuned up and lubricated by a professional with some kind of warranty. Out of some no-name person's house? I wouldn't pay that much.

    I can agree with that

    I agree it is too much. I paid $125 for mine in the trappy stand with the matching stool. I thought that was too much but machines tend to be high priced in this area and I wanted it pretty bad. I did not try to get the price lowered.

    If professionally serviced and comes with a 6 month warranty, that's not bad. if not serviced, then no.

    I agree with the above. You should find one for around $100.00 check ebay. Always make sure you have the bobbin case. I bought one one time without the bobbin case and the bobbin case cost almost as much as I gave for the machine. Lesson learned.
    You will get what you expect to get.

    I think it's a little high unless it's ready to sew, oiled, lubed and clean.
