    #1, that's the cleanest machine I have seen. I can't tell if it's $200 or $300 though. The cord looks scary.

    #2 You put the lime in the car charger and drink it all up....

    the #1 ad http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/bar/4125633824.html is funny to me because I just had someone drop this same machine and case at my house (Because he knows I collect and it was a cool old machine... oops.)

    I don't know there's another $500 sewing machine I'm interested in...

    I think robots are replying. Besides, they send out so many emails they don't have time to look at the item for sale.

    The big flat rate box is pretty big. With a bit more sledgehammering maybe you could fit it in the medium box.

    ha ha ha. For this I am grateful.

    Here's one --
    http://newyork.craigslist.org/fct/atq/4135894498.html
    The seller says
    "This is a working Necchi BF Sewing Machine, MIRA in it's own cabinet as shown. Unit works, and includes some extra belts and other accessories. This machine was used by a relative until she passed away (not from using this).... "

    Me thinks thou dost protest too much! Could she have died from over-oiling the machine? Or tying to set fire to a sewing machine through the oil holes?

    Well, an over-oiled sewing machine is better than the alternative. Those stains would come off easily with just a little more.
