  1. The Mitsubishi has been rebuilt from a reputable dealer (to my knowledge) who sells a lot of stuff online. I haven't found any bad reviews on the company. It's just set up how I need it for $1000 I just can't scrounge up any more cash. And i will likely make no more than 20 bags with it this year. What machines do you see on Craigslist? Mind sharing a link to then
  2. I have a rebuilt Mitsubishi cu 835 I can buy for $950 with table and motor. I just purchased my juki 1541s a month or so ago so hard to throw it down like that again so soon.
  3. I'm looking to add a cylinder arm machine for bag making. I have a juki 1541 but think the cylinder arm will help a lot and I'll also use it for edge banding. Where can I find a good offbrand machine or more preferably a refurb unit from a reputable shop. Walking foot, minimum 138 thread. That will handle 5oz of leather/canvas mix, and then the edge band. Would like to stay under $1000 if possible
  4. I need a quality edge banding attachment for my juki 1541. I see many that see to be universal but I can't make heads or tails on the quality. I'd rather buy the best for ease of use. Thanks!
  5. Thanks guys. I was thinking the same thing. Somehow it touched the foot too much. I'll adjust when I get the new one.
  6. Last night while sewing, my needle bar thread guide broke. Has anyone had this happen to them? Just curious why it broke. The only think I can think of is that there is too much top thread tension, but the stitches look great on both sides. I have to get one to fix it then I may try loosening up the bobbin tension and re adjusting all looser from there. any input on this is appreciated, this is my first machine. Only a few hrs on it the machine. Juki 1542s sewing a mix of heavy canvas and leather. Thanks, here's the part I gotta buy.
  7. Here's a video of me sewing with it.
  8. No. I cut the bracket that bolts the 3 bolts to the bottom of the table. You can see it in my 3rd picture
  9. Got into installed. Once I figured out how I wanted to do it. (With advice from a friend) I cut off one ear for clearance and mounted it in less than 10 minutes. She is super slow stitching now. I love it. I'll upload a few photos. Thanks for the help
  10. Above is my machine. Here's pulley Ok will not let me show another photo yet. I will try and upload to imgur
  11. Can anyone post pictures of how your speed reducer is installed under your table. There isn't much room and wanted to get some ideas about the best way to go about it. I have a juki 1541s if that matters.
  12. Who sells the 441 clone? I'm not familiar with that machine.
  13. Thank you all very much. The cowboy 3200 and the techsew 2700 look great on the top ads. I've watched videos of them on YouTube and both seem like solid choices. Glad to know they have great support here.
