Well....tried to sew a scrap piece with my Consew 225 that I just paid $389 to have serviced. Besides all the trash inside of the door on the left, the door was so loose it was about to fall off. He didn't even attempt to tighten it. There was no signs of fresh oil in there either. I told him I was a complete novice and would like a variable speed motor put on like one that my brother had put on his machine. He assured me it wasn't necessary. I assumed the stock one would start slow and speed up with pressure on the foot plate. Boy was I wrong! This thing runs wide open, which is way too fast for me. Machine is going back to the store owner so he can see what I am talking about and hopefully understand my request for at least half of my money back.
