I wanted to thank all of you for your responses about the Featherweight I bought from Canada on eBay
I have never received the machine. Since the 45 day limit for filing a case was approaching, a case was opened Monday. The very next day the seller refunded my payment including shipping cost.
I wasn't aware of the 45 day time limit until one of you good people told me about it. Thanks again.
Now the search is on for another Featherweight. This time it will be bought locally or in the States. No more international orders for me.
