Another featherweight that was stored in an inch of water. That convertible machine is nice.

Oh good grief! "The pictures are not the greatest because we were not going to drag it out of the Store Room to take pictures. If interested come and take a look. "

If you can't be bothered, why would I go to find out it has mice living in it, there's no machine, it's a rust bucket, etc?

I can’t see any signs of mice, but it think there may be a spider on the bottom left drawer hanger. He doesn’t look dangerous.....

Oh man! Spiders! I nearly dropped a purple Kenmore on my foot over spider. He popped out of nowhere and I couldn't put the machine down fast enough. Didn't buy it that day, even for the $5 they were asking. And we don't even have any of the really bad spiders here.

The price is reasonable if it's not missing a bunch of parts, etc because of the type of cabinet, but I feel unmotivated by their lack of motivation...

Where was this machine made? Last I checked, Italy and France were two different countries.
