Sold vintage Singer sewing machine Model 15-91. Buyer contacted me saying it was slow. I spent half hour on the phone with him trouble shooting. He at first said the motor was shot. Now he agrees the motor works fine. Everything works fine on the machine other than he says it goes real slow. During our phone conversation he tells me he found another Singer 15-91 with cabinet in great shape 10 miles from him and he purchased it for $49. He wanted to know if I wanted him to return my machine so I could find out what might be wrong with it. My answer is no for a couple reasons. I'm sure he now does not need 2 of the same type machine and paid $198 for mine and thinks I will take mine back not that he has found another for only $49 with a cabinet. I know these machines inside and out and with my troubleshooting there is nothing wrong with the machine. It takes me about an hour plus $15 additional packing materials to ready one of these machines for shipment to see that it is not damages in any way when it arrives. He has already given me a positive feedback but now I see what is happening with buyers remorse. What would you other ebayer do? ps: I will never sell vintage machines with 14 day no questions asked money back refund. That would really be stupid. This is a good example of how people will take advantage of that rule.
