    Buy it, but be sure it is running good. and about to buy a juki tl98q and that runs 1200 dollars. they are great machines. Mine will only do straight stitch, but that is ok with me. I need it to stipple quilt. great buy
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    this is an industrial model typically used in the garment district.

    the best advice i can give you is to go and try it out and see if it will work for you and the type of sewing you do in your life.

    i have 2 juki machines a 98Q and the F600 and i love them both but i do not have an industrial juki and i have never wanted one because i prefer their consumer models for the type of sewing i do.

    You know, I'm thinking against it then. I'm barely out of the womb with quilting and just don't know what I'd do with it!! I'd be hard pressed to come up with the money for it, and while I could probably come up with it, don't really know if I'm ready to jump in to buy something that I'm not sure how I'd use. I had hoped it was not industrial.

    That looks like a good deal to me. I have a Juki industrial, and I love it. Other Juki owners who I know also love Juki. They are real workhorses. Not fancy stitches, but with quilting, those are not needed (may be nice for those who like to embellish, yes; but not necessary).

    That machine looks brand new. If you decide to pass on it, why not start a topic, on "Where to get a great deal" I bet others in your area who be interested in it. (I would be, if I didn't just get my Juki. I had mine shipped to me for $200 from up north, so the fact that it is industrial, doesn't stop everyone!

    Yes, it's industrial and looks to be a straight stitch machine only. To be honest, unless you're planning on doing full on 8-10 hour a day sewing, you can get an all metal, straight stitch, vintage singer in the $50 range that would serve you just as nicely as a piecing machine.
