    I am not really in the market but I just wondered if any company makes them that way. My mom is looking for a old viking 1 for me .. she said they have all metal.. I just wondered if any others do ? And our they way up in price

    None of the new machines have metal gears....all have plastic or nylon.

    If you're wanting a machine with metal gears then start looking for an older machine. You'll need to look with freecycle and craigslist.

    I am a costume designer. My first machine was a singer 6 something and it lasted 30 plus years. It had metal gears and was rebuilt several times. I had a Viking next. Super machine and now a Pfaff. I am now in the market for a new machine. I spoke to a Bernina rep yesterday. She did tell me that they had metal gears. Got to check this out. If so then it will be the Bernina.
