Thanks alot for the info. That's the kind of information I was hoping to come by. As I said earlier in the post I don't know much about this machine and finding information has been difficultJuki . So if I read your response correctly the Juki DNU 241-HS would be a similar machine? I'm concerned about the maintanence. There are oil holes all over and I don't want it to fail because of improper care. Would a manual for a Juki DNU 241-HS be close enough to cover these things?
