I went in to buy this today and they have a used one for $799 with a one year warranty. I asked how old it was and they said they didn't know.. I will want an age before I buy it. It's supposed to be slightly used, traded in for an Evolution. Just curious what a good used price is!

I paid $1200 for my Babylock CS machine (new) 2+ years ago. I think that is a good price.

It's a good deal, especially with a warrenty. Used are hard to find.

That's a good price, but you're wise to want to know the age of it. Babylock should be able to tell you based on the serial number. Unless I had a relationship with the dealer and felt comfortable with the information they provided in general, I would copy the number down myself and contact Babylock directly. There's so much game playing in the sewing machine/serger sales, and I'd want to know the date of manufacture for sure.

This sounds like the first version of their CS, and that's what I have. I like it. But just so you know, there's a newer CS2 out that has better lighting and (less importantly) a slightly lighter color housing.

It's a great machine, though, and you'll probably really enjoy having it!

I can tell you used are VERY tough to find, esp the coverstitch machines... once most people buy them, they don't give them up!

Well, I got it. With a plan for three years (which extends the warranty to 3 years) it was half of what a new one with the plan would've been. I'm excited! Now to play with it :)
