    Wow, if what he says is true, I feel really bad about taking advantage of the lady who sold me one that is in great condition with multiple feet and the manual for $30!

    I'd be willing to bet his mail box is over filling with mail..

    is there such a thing as a japanese necchi ??

    well I'll be... I just check'd and sure enough there is,, so his machine must be worth 500 meaning my necchi cabinet must be worth a 1000

    here's one that placed local to me, it's been running for 5 to 6 weeks now each week they relist to stay on top..... The norm here would be 125 $ for a hand crank...

    I can zoom in 400% and see it missing alot of the beds decals and the serail number ,, one letter and 7 numbers, I can't make out what they are ,,,

    I'm guess it's a 128.. today I looked up the 128 I got mine is G 7614214 1919, The add on mine said 1908 .

    in checking number I found anything with 7 numbers was from aroung 1905 /6 to early 20's.

    so this one is starting have scam written all over it ..I mean come on.. they want to sell it ,, 350$,, but email them and the deal is off , get real.. some how I don't think they have a computer. maybe not..

    Still overpriced.

    It is an odd cabinet. Sort of a clone of a treadle base and parlor cabinet. Is the twelve step program working?

    I'm wondering about that w/g's base also,, it must be missing it's side pieces, otherwise whats which the drop Door ...

    he has repainted the stand, the hean looks very clean,, But the tops colors don't match. I was thinking parlor also, but there is spacing to fit drawers on each side. ??

    Yeah. AND I'm going to drive 40 miles one way to see the sewing machine that was used to sew the Emperor's new clothes?

    the Emperor must be a party animal. I mean call any time, what about 3 am , to demand a photo..

    The new home looks pretty good,,, I'll trade them 20 bucks worth of gas, to haul it here and another 20 to pick up a gallon of actone, keep the change,, 3 days later that cabinet will look brand to new,,

    Obviously not very bright - posted his address and directions straight to his house! Maybe he should have prayed for some guidance in pricing this machine???

    The pain is from the price and the pin pricks from the cloth wrapping used as a pin cushion.
