A couple of reasons @dlane , but first the reason I'm interested in this machine is because only one person so far is bidding on this machine and his bid is $100. maybe someone will come in at the last moment and bump it up a little but still it doesn't look like this machine will go for much . I'm only interested in it for the legs , but say it goes for around $100. and shipping was really only $300. It would still be a smokin' deal . There is a guy in my area that is trying to corner the market on vintage Atlas/Craftsman stuff his prices are pretty steep . He has a pair of those legs and he wants $400. firm . The main problem for me is space , so (haha) I have to think small .

Not necessarily, but if so, there's nothing unreasonable about that. Three or four years ago, I bought an MFC (in this case obviously incomplete) solely because it was sitting on one of the post-war steel cabinets. Not as far to ship as in Mark's case but it was in NJ and I'm in Houston, so hardly next door.

Well now I'm a little depressed . $152.50 and it' sold . Really I had no intentions of buying or shipping this machine . Although I was soul searching a bit , I was thinking relieving this old machine of it's legs might blasphemy , but really there is nothing wrong IMO with buying a machine for the legs and then selling the machine . Buying a machine and selling part of it and throwing away the rest now that's a different story IMO .
