Please point folks you might know who'd know about this at the post, if you'd be so kind. :-)

There is a White treadle machine available locally for $50. The machine is in working order, though the cabinet is in rough shape and missing a couple of drawers.

My main issue is that (and I haven't heard back from the seller yet) it looks like it's probably a vibrating shuttle model.

So, what's my best option?

1. Walk away. It's too expensive in any respect, given the poor condition of the cabinet.

2. Only worth it if it has ALL the feet, manual, shuttle, and multiple bobbins

3. Go for it as long as it has a shuttle and at least one bobbin

4. Grab it. Finding the missing bits won't be all THAT difficult and it's a steal of a deal - even if it needs to go in a new cabinet later.
