I am looking for a speed reducer for my Juki 1541s. 

I was wondering what the most reputable and best speed reducer would be for this machine. Googling helps but doesn't come close to those with working experience!

If you're in the States give Cobra Steve or Cowboy Bob a call. I'm sure they can help.

I would recommend a servo motor for nearly anyone who doesn't need a 1HP + motor. You can get decent 550W (3/4HP) and 750 (1HP) motors for less than $150 and $200 shipped if you look. We use ones like this on two lockstitch machines. They appear to be rebranded Consew or acceptable quality knockoffs. They have needle position sensors and allow you to program min and max speeds, speed ramp up, and needle up or down. I quite like them. I have a Rex motor without control unit or position sensor, but that does allow max speed control with a dial on the motor, on an overlock machine. It's good if you don't care about those extra features, which don't make sense on an overlock machine anyhow.
