I have an opportunity to purchase a 14 year old APQS machine...I just wanted some advice as to what might go wrong with a machine that old and what to look out for. For the price I'd get a lot more space (22 inch throat space and 14 foot frame) and machine than what I can afford new, and this would be a starter machine for me - my first long arm. It seems to be from someone who took good care of it but I guess you can never really know until you get it home and use it a bit and see if it has any issues. I'll be testing it out a bit before I buy but it's a two hour drive to get to the machine so it's not as if I could go and test it then come home and sleep on it.
I'd be grateful for any advice!
