What are the prices? Durkopp-Adler is a Cadillac and Juki is an Oldsmobile.
Durkopp-Adler is German and Juki is Japanese. Both are good machines. I prefer a top load bobbin, but that's just a personal preference.

Dan is the expert here, not me.

I have really loved my Adler though. Everything about it has been good other than the price of parts/accessories. You realize real quickly it is German made.

The good news is, the only thing I have ever had to buy is a foot.

Most industrial machines have 1/2" shafts. The Adler has 3/4" shafts and is made like the Germans used to make tanks.

Price is approx. $1000 more for the adler side load and 1500 more for the top load compared to the juki.

Not made in Germany anymore though. What is putting me off is that accessories are very pricy

I should have said that Durkopp-Adler is a German company, not that they are manufactured there. Yes, parts etc. are very expensive for the Adler. Pfaff also. If it's a question of price, Juki makes a very good machine. You can't go wrong with either one.
