I was a parachute rigger in the Army for 3 years and one of our many jobs was repairing parachutes using 'light duty' machines that are similar to this one. We had Brothers, Consew, and Singer machines and all were basically the same duty and purpose as this one. Between all of those machines, I prefer the Juki that I ordered here. I realize that the ones we used in the Army were a decade old or more but even after adjusting/repairing our old machines, they never ran as smooth as this one does.
Now, if you are wanting a machine that does zig-zag stitches or anything else besides a great straight stitch, this is not the machine for you. This is a straight stitch only but let me tell you... It is probably the greatest straight stitch that you could get. If you use one at home for things like quilting or other projects that only require straight stitches, you will never go back to your little home machine again.
I have been used to using industrial machines for a while now so I was not leery of it a bit but my wife was. I turned the motor down for her (another great advantage of a servo motor) and she got used to it very quickly. She hates using the old plastic singer machine now. This one is just so solid. If you've got any questions about the machine just post them like normal on this page and I'll continue to answer them the best that I can but please read the questions that have been posted so far like "Where is it made..".
I love the easy adjustment for seeing speed on the bottom too. It is definitely worth investing on!
It come well in package for safety, its really hard to take them apart from the big screw on the planks but its worth it.
I would have given it 5 starts if the light is working on the table, I think its broken, the light is placed on the sewing machine and plug to the sewing machine, when I use my table light to plug to the sewing machine it works so I'm pretty sure it arrive defective.
otherwise its great! Its not very clear how to open up the machine to pour the solution in so its pretty tricky unless you know what to do, have to think yourself where to unscrew. Good luck and enjoy!
