It's best feature would have to be the superior 'role-ability' of the casters because I would use those to push it down an extremely steep hill never to be seen again!

    Good design should combine usefulness with beauty where possible, as the old sewing machine manufacturers seemed to understand pretty well

    I messaged the seller and confirmed there is a sewing machine in the table. I haven't heard back from my request for a picture of the machine.

    I checked. The price includes airfare for two from Missouri to California and SUV rental for return with the machine. I'm not sure it isn't still overpriced. What do you think?

    It is a 15 clone and looks clean but the blue foot controller is something else. Worth the price too.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    $30 for a 15-91 is a great deal. Looks like it might also be a centennial edition.

    Does it have a foot pedal/power cord?

    I'd probably get it either way.

    You can see the cord in the picture of the original listing. The drawer is open. I'm picking it up tomorrow morning.

    My ebayfu claims $50 might be too high.

    One in good shape is worth a bit less IMHO but they can be good machines. I had one for years and LOVED it.

    I have never had one of those turn into a parts machine.

    I've one I'd sell for $70 but that desk is something else. If I had the desk I might make my Supermatic my go-to machine. No way to put a value on the desk.

    Ohhh!!! I'm just listening to my heart! thump thump thump thumpity thump....

    Edit: hmmm,... "I double check everything before shipping it out and cannot be held responsible for any damage caused or any loss in the package during the delivery process.
    All items are shipped with a return address and have insurance for the value of the item or items. In the unlikely event of your items gone missing I will provide you with details of proof of postage, you will be responsible for chasing after the item yourself."

    Misinformed seller. Only the shipper can pursue the carrier for restitution. Also he has to pack it right or the carrier WON'T honor the shippnig insurance. Caveat Emptor.
