    Dang! That's a pretty good deal with all the accessories; and not hardly a scratch on her!

    If I were closer I would buy her.

    You have no idea how lucky you are finding all these great machines. Just found a slant 500 here and the asking price is $400. That tends to be the number you see when looking around here.

    Pfaff 1245- for the heavy duty sewing of straps using thread that will support your weight. Replaced the drive pulley to gear down the speed 1/2- I'll never be able to sew as fast as factory workers!

    Bernina 217-08 Swiss made when it meant quality Bernina does not manufacturer industrial sewing machines since this model. This is the machine that makes me money. It has a built in 3 step zig zag, regular zig zag, reverse, uses feed dogs but has a factory puller. This machine will sew fine and up to medium heavy fabrics.

    If you had the money to spend and wished to manufacture a product this would be the machine I'd recommend. It makes me look good seam-wise

    Juki LH-3188 This is a medium duty 2 needle machine. It can be used with either needle alone. If you are sewing along an edge and need to turn a corner, the inner needle can be stopped while the outer needle sews around the longer seam and then re-engaged together again

    Juki MOG 2800 series industrial serger. I say industrial because of the needle sizes and the thread that this machine will use. Also the cutter will chop through almost anything. Great machine- pain to thread

    Singer Slantomatic 500A with every accessory possible, even the pink singer case. I bought this machine when I first started sewing, it was not heavy duty enough for repairing sailboat sails. I never use it now though it sews fantastic. PM me if interested

    I'm a huge pfaff fan here. Nice bernina as well, what puller are you using? have you had any problems with your twin needle engagement clutch? We just got rid of our juki twin needles because of that and replaced them with brothers. I do hear ya about the right setup making you feel/look good. My first nice machine was an Adler 120 and I instantly felt like I was sewing better.

    I do wish some of the domestic technology like jet air threading on overlocks and coverstitch (babylock) would be more common on industrial machines. I ran my lower looper out of thread yesterday and I almost quit for the day rather than rethreading.

    Hi Pag

    My Pfaff is my heavy hitter. If I can get it under the presser foot, the machine will sew it. Plywood is not out of the question. It is so simple in its mechanism, and the bobbins are huge. I bought it out of a pawn shop for $300 table and all! It is a compound needle feed.

    The Bernina is just the sweetest sewing machine. It has feed dogs and also a puller on a big roller that makes consistent stitch length easy. I need the zig zag for repairing sail.s. It has a pretty small bobbin and parts are almost unobtainable. But nothing ever breaks.

    The Juki 2 needle is a really nice machine as well. I have not had clutch problems, but I got the machine from a factory at almost zero time brand new. I have 2 sets of gauge blocks, 3/8 and 1/2 inch spacing. Cost $1400 and I hardly have used it. When I sew a long seam perfectly spaced it seems worth it. Again it makes me look good.

    I am using v69 thread in the serger. The previous owner used it for making insulation blankets for welding on the Alaska pipeline. It will sew and cut 4 layers of strapping no problemo John S
