    Yeah, I love those 99's and 221's that show up on ebay and they want $499.00 for them. You think, wow this must be really special, click into it and realize that it's in deplorable condition. Really love the ones with the white motors on the black machines. Somebody sees it at their house and says, man, you should sell that they're getting hundreds of dollars for those now - they don't bother to look up what other people are selling for how much - they just throw one or two pictures out there and give it a "pristine" price. I've gone as far, as sending them a message that they should really compare theirs to the others they're competing with and reset their price at something more appropriate.... (I know, I'm bad - but they really are wasting their money paying for Ebay ads for nothing).

    What is sad is that other sellers see those prices and then they think they can get that.

    I like this one. It's cheap.They make it seem like you are getting a great deal since it comes with attachments and manual, and cabinet looks very nice, but it's just missing the treadle pedal.
