    I wonder how much they want for the just the 9 suitcases full of fabric. Do you keep the suitcases, too?
    So how much does the machine alone cost???

    Do you think they found dinosaur bones when they unearthed that poor machine?

    There are times I'd like to email them to ask if they think I have stupid written across my forehead.

    Recently I found a Best Built 15 clone in a cabinet at my local GW for $20. I really looked it over because I had never seen one before. It was in fresh from the barn condition.(Dead Daddy longlegs included) Rust in several places on the exterior and rust stains coming thru the paint including from within the motor. A few days later I'm looking at ads on CL. What do I see .......the Best Built. It has suddenly become more valuable because they slapped a coat of poly on the cabinet. $125 and the machine doesn't work.

    And then you have this brain surgeon. Between the pictures and the text, I am not sure which one is worse. And you can hardly notice the scratches on the lid that they put there with the 2 wheel dolly either. They just couldn't figure out how to get the machine up, so, let's just flip it over and scratch up the top. What does "What is it model" mean? And where is the other cabinet? Does it have duct tape on it too?

    Some pictures that people choose to put in their ads just crack me up. This one gave me a good chuckle. Not only is it just a picture of the case, but the case is WAY over there in this big empty room. Oh Reggie.

    LOL!!! I love it when people call things that were mass produced, "One of a kind". I also like the o.n.o. (must have meant OH NO!)

    And cold and hungry. Maybe I should go there and give it a saucer of milk. Unless it is a Singer Merritt. And yes Frudemoo, they must.
