    Steve,

    Actually looks like nothing is wrong with this one except that the drawers are in backwards. Visualize yourself looking at it from the otherside and then have the drawers face the you.

    Well, it is difficult to get interested in a Futura 900 for $200.
    Based on that and the jacket (other items for sale), I'd say it's safe to assume most of the items are overpriced.

    Ever feel like just emailing a link to the pertinent part of this thread to the posters?

    Why not? It's not like anyone ever changes their ads when we email them and say, "Not your retirement plan, here's why....." We can still laugh (It's not like we can edit our comments after 5 mins anyway ) , and maybe they'll get an education...

    They're coming out of the wood work lately! The cranks, not the treadles.

    The price isn't bad on this one, but it reminds me of those pickup trucks you see, the ones with the different colored boxes.... or hoods...

    That second one looks like those transformer toys they used to make. It looks like if you pull it side to side it might turn into a long arm monster.

    That would certainly make it a must have for me for the price. I wouldn't have to dedicate all of the space all the time to a LA

    A Zinger? Wow, they got ripped off if there's any truth at all to what they're saying

    actually a good deal if you know how to fix ones that break thread... I wish I would have seen these years ago.
