    I have a Juki TL98QE, straight stitch only, works great for me. I sew 8-10 hours per day lots of days and it just keeps going. I don't know why you wouldn't want to buy the industrial, if all is well with it.

    I would buy it in a flash. have a Brother (that was made by Juki for Brother) and I think it is the best machine I have. I am going to look seriously at buying an industrial Juki for my next machine as well.

    I'm thinking about this one. Any experience or suggestions?

    Check the site Allbrands.com ... I think I've seen a similar machine there for under $1000 but I could, and probably am, wrong. I'd suggest seeing how fast it sews too. One I saw sewed super duper fast so if you are newish to sewing machines it might not be such a good idea, but I do love the extra large throat space.

    I have the TL98Q also...and it wasn't anywhere near the price you are quoting...
    Maybe you should do a bit of research on the machine before purchasing...

    I love the commercial machines, have several vintage machines both commercial and home. I would say go for it, if you need to slow it down there is a motor that can be purchased for about $200 that will help control it from 1 stitch to full out speed. Just got one for my walking foot Singer 111W and love it! I do make a lot of different things so I like having a choice and not breaking any more of my other machines because I am doing too heavy of work. Go try it and see!

    I'd buy it for that price! It is a straight stitch only machine but it also has a built in walking foot. The speed can be controlled by using a smaller pulley on the motor or by installing a servo motor with a speed control built in. That is a fantastic price for a machine that looks like it has never seen the inside of a factory.

    The table, lamp, thread stand and motor are close to 450.00. A Juki industrial head starts at around 1200.00 to 1500.00. Buy it and resell it.
