    But it's black and comes with its own cabinet. Come on ladies, we are just too picky here. Actually, I believe the seller needs a jacket that makes him hug himself and a nice cozy padded room.

    Now...in their defense, if they don't know machine values, and don't want to bother to research, it's better to start high and go lower, because it's nearly impossible to start low and go higher!!

    Here is a "marketing" consideration. What if the $10,000 figure is an attention getter? I bet a whole lot of people looked at the $$ figure just to see what kind of machine would be worth that much. It did elicit some response here on the QB.

    You can make an offer but truthfully, it isn't even worth the $30 they are charging for shipping! They will get more if they take it to a scrap yard and sell the metal!

    Don't forget to figure in the shipping. A $130.00 for that machine is incredible

    Oh, they're high all right! I might could sell some of what they're smoking and make some serious money.

    Well, he/she has reduced the price a couple of times. Keep waiting and it may come down even lower. I am sure that the book would be interesting to have if you a collector but not for me at that price.

    This is a 5 part PDF download for the Students Manual of Machine Sewing. Thanks to Sew-Classic for this booklet and it is free.

    Then perhaps put in nice caps somewhere in the ad: NO PERVERTS! It's been a long week, thanks for making me laugh.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!
