    I'm just wondering what you all think of this and is it worth the price. She sent me more pics and the case is pretty bad and is even duck taped together. She has is at $275.00 but told me to make her an offer. So everyone I sure do need your help here.

    I think it is too much but it is all according to how much you want a machine like that.

    Too much. I waited patiently and found one in almost perfect condition with case and book for less.

    I was thinking the same thing. I didn't know about offering less or not. But after your postings I think I will just forget it. Thanks.

    Well it does say "or best offer", you could make your offer (whatever that might be) and see how it goes.

    Make an offer! You should be able to find a new case.

    My philosophy in life is "it never hurts to ask"; so I would definitely lo-ball her and let her come back with a counter offer. As long as the machine works, you don't use the case that often; and you are not committed if you don't like the price!

    I'm with TraumaRN, except that my philosophy is, "Never pay the asking price." She's offering it OBO, so make an offer.

    Around here, they go for much more, even at auction. And with shopgoodwill.com, you never know how much work it will need. In addition, some of them do not package their machines well which results in more problems.

    But seriously, if I were you, I'd make an offer. All she can do is say no.

    Thanks everyone I already told her I wasn't interested. Too much work to make it look nice.
