    Is that grey paint all over that poor thing? It would be a beautiful cleaned up. There's a lot of nice detail in the castings and the woodwork.

    Man, I would totally go get it, if it was reasonable.
    Why is there always one on Ebay selling for a lot more money?

    They also say the legs don't come with the machine. My guess is they're going to turn the old girl into an end table or something.

    And the "legs" don't come with the machine! I assume they are going to make a lovely robins egg blue table with them.
