Default Deal or No Deal?

If you all can have a look at this ad and tell me if you see anything glaring that would make you stay away.......
I asked the seller to tell me the numbers on the bobbin holder and it is original.
It is in good, working condition and I will be able to try it before I decide. The price is firm, but it seems like a good price.
Should I add that I already have one and don't need another, or is that pointless with this crowd?
Thanks! Watson

Watson, I laughed out loud at your last sentence.

It reads as a good deal and I noticed the person had good feedback.

Yes, I'm an enabler and not going to tell you or anyone else how many FW's I have as it's embarrassing hahaha

I'd definitely go and see it, Watson. I know, famous last words "it can't hurt to look" lol

And, yes, its pointless with this crowd. I have, I think, seven machines, but if I see another Artista 180 or a green Singer 185, I'll be coming home with me.

Yes, it looks like a decent deal. I find it kind of interesting, though, as it looks like there are two manuals. One looks like it is for a buttonhole attachment and the other could be for the ZigZag Attachment. (I tried magnifying the image, but it wasn't real clear and could be a guess.) I do not see either a buttonhole attachment or a ZigZag Attachment.

I'll give you one guess as to whether I bought it or not.

It needs the black cap that goes over the on switch and the lamp hangs down a bit low...it still works but it isn't solid up as high as it should be. I have a mechanical and an electrical engineer in the family, so I'm sure they can figure it out. The decals aren't as nice as I'd like on the front of the bed, but once I get her shined up I think she will fit right in.
Otherwise, she sews great and everything looks good.

If you do sewing that includes two colors of thread on the same project, you can thread each one with a different color. Oh your project is tri color? Guess you need one more.

Oops, I read it wrong. I thought you saw another one.
Glad you got it!
