I agree with you guys 100%. I just wanted to throw out one other thought for new entrees into upholstery. It is probably far better to purchase a quality used machine that has been professionally refurbished than it is to buy a lesser quality new machine. It purchased a refurbished Adler 267 from a company in Nashville for about 800 dollars with table. I spent another 200 dollars for a Reliable Servo Motor so for 1000 dollars I have a quality machine that should run all day every day with limited maintenance.

I am not suggesting that this is a bargain basement price but it is great to know you have a good machine you can depend on and enjoy.

For those who may not know, The Adler is a German machine similar in quality to the Pfaff but probably not as common and a little pricier when it comes to parts. The good thing is I have never needed a part.
