I was checking on featherweights and came across the website from a fellow who refurbishes featherweights and has a 221 for $800 which is completely gone over from top to bottom, case is refurbished and like new comes with 5 bobbins,instruction manual
oil,several attachments, and more.

No I would not. There are plenty of FW out there in very good shape for a whole heck of a lot less than $800.

I totally agree with this. You can find them all day long on eBay for $225 or so. And in very good condition with all the attachments and a good case.
