That's the same as mine, but not what I call it!

Well if he has the manual then he should know what the machine is actually called.

I expect that's what his mother called it. What is that in the third picture? Doesn't look like anything I have.

And in the first picture as  well @Greybird , looks like a hook of some sort with a ring on the end. Probably don't have a clue and  more interested in the selling and money than looking in the manual to set it up.

That looks like a 4 thread overlocker type machine to me, perhaps because I haven't looked for one 1 I wasn't aware there was a true feller available for domestic use. If you have a look on eBay there are a lot available but 99% are industrial machines and not even in my wildest imagination could I compare a proper one to that machine above. It beggars belief how people will try and con you doesn't it?

I checked the model number and it is described as an overlocker :[

So what is a "true feller"? The 9200D is indeed just a 4 thread overlocker.

Google says

In sewing, to fell is to finish a seam by sewing the edge down flat. In this context, feller can refer to a person who finishes a seam in this way or to a sewing machine attachment that does it.

An overlocked seam and a (flat) felled seam don't look anything like the same though, do they?

Are sellers on ebay subject to the Trades Description Act?

Confusing an overlocker with a serger might just be acceptable - technically I think that serging means using the cutting knife as well as forming the stitches whilst overlocking alone doesn't; but generally it's just UK-US terminology - but to call an overlocker/serger machine a felling machine must surely break the law. 

Sowing machines and sawing machines also also technically incorrect descriptions, though most literate people will see that as spelling errors rather than a trully misleading description
Brenda.  My machines are: Corona, a 1953 Singer 201K-3, Caroline, a 1940 Singer 201K-3, Thirza, 1949 Singer 221K, Azilia, 1957 Singer 201K-MK2 and Vera, a Husqvarna 350 SewEasy about 20 years old. Also Bernina 1150 overlocker and Elna 444 Coverstitcher.

If you type in felling machine in Google you get machines that .....fell trees!   :)
Other results are for blind hemmers . 
This Janome is definitely an overlocker as I’ve sold and demonstrated loads of them.
