That's what i heard. Never have even seen one till i bought mine. Dan you know more about these machines then i ever will. If i had it to do over. I wouldn't buy the servo motor i have. I'd get one like yours Dan. A Little more money. But i hear its much better motor. Only about 20 to 30 bucks more. They charged me 99 dollars extra for this one. My machine does have bobbin to the left and is a pain to load a times. Is a pretty cool toy.
