Reliable makes their own motors to their standards.

If you want to buy a Consew servo motor and save the money, by all means do so.

Thanks for the info. That's what I have been missing. I read each of their specs, and they both read about the same.

I don't mind spending the extra money for something that is worth it.

1Bad67 So the Sewquiet really is better than the Consew?

I read all the specs, and couldn't find a big difference. The one thing I noticed that I didn't like about any of them is that it seems the speed control is located on the motor. I wish it were remote so I could mount it next to the power switch.

DanTwoLakes You are missing the fact that all servo motors are not the same, just like all car engines are not the same. Some servos are just bare bones without a lot of features. I sew for a living, so I need something that's reliable. When I first started looking for a servo motor, I did a lot of checking and comparing before buying. I have three Sew-Quiet motors on my sewing machines, including one that runs my extra heavy duty long arm Singer 144, and none has ever given me an ounce of trouble.

Servo question

Which one should I get? Consew is about $85, Sewquiet is about $150.
I was going to go Consew, but eveyone I see is using the Sewquiet. What am I missing?

Thanks,
Eric
