Consew 225?

I found one for a good price. Does this machine do 3 stitches per inch?

The Consew instruction manual for the 225 says the maximum stitch length is 3 1/2 to 4 stitches per inch.

I really don't know what the maximum stitch length is for the 111W.

I picked up a Singer 111W head as a backup machine head for $100 a while back. It sews great, but no reverse.

Reverse it great to have, especially if you're sewing for a living, but it's not necessary.
