I cruise eBay daily. I have purchased four machines on eBay that I had shipped to me. Two I had to send back. The packing was pretty bad and the machines broke in transit. I lost some money, but learned a lesson. It is best to avoid buying heavy, fragile (yes they are) machines on eBay unless you can pick them up, or you know that the sender is a really really good packer. So I search within 100 miles of my zip code.
I do, however, buy parts on eBay and today I "won" an auction for a "lot" of 206 parts. The Tale of the 206K is coming up. In it you will learn about compulsion, blind obsession, denial and charity. Check back later. I will have photos and the story.
