Durrkopp/Adler is top of the bill quality.

At least here in the Netherlands you can buy any part for it.

The Adler is less than half that, but I am not very familiar with the brand. (Most of the info I find on the internet is in German or various Scandinavian languages, which I don't understand, beyond looking at the pictures.)

Are these good machines? Will I be able to get parts/service for it, or would something more mainstream (like an old industrial Singer, or new unit above) be a better choice living in the Eastern United States?

Thanks. (Long time lurker - finally took the plunge...)
