    Cool Royal ZigZag, but $225, seriously?

    That first one is a very good deal to me. Good thing I don't live closer.
    If I bring many more home I'll be sleeping under them outside. If I'm lucky I may have another treadle machine in need of restoration on it's way to me this weekend. A friend down in Portland has one he needs a new home for.

    Imagine having that in a store and having someone lean on the left or right side? I bet a lawsuit would ensue after it tipped over and landed on their foot.

    I love these sellers that throw out arbitrarily high numbers in regards to how much they spent for something, and then try to sell it for way less. They could have at least oriented it on the base correctly.

    I have sent a few "what were you thinking" replies to some of those...

    My favorite is the "They are listed on Ebay for $1000 but I am selling this in a hurry for $300"

    So you are in $700 worth of hurry, or you think we are actually that dumb?

    That has to be one of the ugliest reuses ever! In addition to being totally out of proportion.

    this is the pink one I'm hankering for - not sure how far down they'll be willing to go on price though - but doesn't every girl need a pink sewing machine? It would look really nice next to the green White (model 670) when I get that one.

    The blaze orange screwdriver kills the deal for me. There's no call for that, when you know there must have been pink screwdrivers available.....
