    Are the other 2-3 machines in the photo accessories? I'd take the kittie too...

    Speaking of bait 'n switch. Couple days ago my $5 eBay bid was high on a nice Singer 15 clone so called "made in America." (Was interested in a 15 clone "made in America") Upon payment I was informed it was listed incorrectly. It should have been $50. Am currently trying to get back my $5 and shipping. If the process continues I'm beginning a complaint. The money isn't as important as their thinking I'm a patsy. If it costs more in time and money than my investment I'm continuing the complaint. I'm beginning to think the gains on eBay don't outweigh the frustrations.

    Most finished Ebay auctions are binding to both seller and buyer, not just buyer. I would dispute it on those grounds if you really wanted the machine. They had the option of ending the auction early or just canceling it.

    http://www.azcentral.com/business/ar...nclick_check=1

    "Most eBay auctions -- from antiques to fashion to video games -- are considered to be legally binding contracts, requiring quick payment from the buyer and safe delivery from the seller. Not so for vehicle auctions, which are non-binding and can be canceled by either the buyer or the seller." I bet I can find that in their rules too. This article was more "fun" though.

    The cars are not binding, I would think that a sewing machine is.

    ETA: I agree, eBay isn't worth the aggravation.

    Seems like a simple matter to work out to me. Hope all communication was/is done through eBay messaging.

    So far, but eBay requires we work it out between ourselves first. Is still too consuming. Maybe simple but I've other things I'd like to be doing. I'd best get to them.

    Ok, this one has me baffled. What model and what's with the openings on top?
    Mark is right, but I see it there in the last picture. It is an oval piece and it is under the motor just about to fall into the opening. I bet it was lost by the time they posted it. That machine and cabinet are in HORRIBLE condition. The finish on the machine is crazed something terrible.

    Isn't that a match? Maybe a fireplace one?

    Could be. Seems like it would be awkward to start a fire while holding a sewing machine, though.

    The description seems to be for another machine. Among other incongruent things it says, "Metal parts are free of rust and corrosion and the sewing plate has retained its original luster." The cloth plate and most of the metal is covered in rust. And what is the "butterfly" clamp? I think they lifted the description from another ad.

    Tammi is right -- it's a binding contract. It's strange that they didn't refund your money immediately, but I would request that they honor the contract. If they don't, or if they refund, then escalate to ebay. It's obvious that they were hoping the bid would go higher, not that they mis-priced it. As Tammi said, they could have cancelled it. This is probably grounds for suspension so I would make ebay aware of it. Mis-pricing an item is not a valid reason for cancelling an auction that has ended. A valid reason would be that the item is no longer available ("I dropped it and it broke", etc.). This is usually the reason given by these people who have seller's remorse.

    The hand wheel has more than 4 spokes as well, if you can even call the curvy cutouts spokes.

    Weed is actually a machine brand name. Would like better pics though. Fairly uncommon from what I can remember about them.

    Thanks for clarifying the "Weed" part - I really thought it was something the seller was smoking!

    http://columbus.craigslist.org/for/4087118008.html $250? I'll take two! If I was looking for a beautifully serviced machine that was all fixed up and ready to go, I might call but CL gives you, what now, 12 pictures? Show me something.

    Not a problem. Can't remember where I came across the information but not a commonly found machine from what I remember.

    OK WHICH ONE OF YOU IS THE VOICE OF GOD???????????
    I have a post on CL for a Spartan.
    This is the reply:

    " YOU SHOULD STATE IN YOUR AD THAT IT HAS A .8 AMP MOTOR WHICH IS STRONGER THAN THE LARGER MACHINES, THEY MOSTLY HAVE .53 AMP MOTORS, ALSO THAT ALTHOUGH IT DOES NOT HAVE A WALKING FOOT IT IS CAPABLE OF DOING SMALL LEATHER PROJECTS OF DRESS LEATHER AND JACKETS.. VERY STRONG LITTLE MACHINES,
    IT ALSO HAS REVERSE.

    Weird.....
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
