Okay so I JUST got my new Bernina, but before I was surprised with that machine I purchased a JUKI TL98E off of craigslist.
The cost....$100. The woman's mother quilted, and she had it sitting in a closet for 5 years and finally decided to list it. It has the thread cutter on the foot peal as well. Although she did tell me that it was broken on the pedal. (Turns out the wire was cut, so I spliced it together and it works just fine now.
So here's my question, my original idea in buying this was to get a quilt frame and try quilting that way. However now I have my Bernina with BSR....so do I still need this? I believe the throat space on this is bigger that my Bernina.
