Smile Bailey quliting machine anyone?

I have a 20 year old Kenmore that I have set on my handiquilter11 frame. Works wonderfullly but I think my machine is starting to leave us , slowly very slowly , which is good for me. I am looking at the Bailey that seem affordable and comes in a 13, 15 and now 17"

http://www.baileyssewingcenter.com/bahoqupro15.html

Does anyone have any experience with this machine? I can't afford a Tin Lizzie or the like so this is the option that I have and looks decent. I would appreciate any direction , I tried used but at $8000 I am not sure I would get the use out of it.

Thank you for any help!

I have a Bailey 15.I love it,its a work horse.I also had a 13 and sold it to my cousin.There is a new board for Bailey....join up ask questions.I think you should see if the is someone near you so you could try one out.also look and see if someone has one for sale on the board.I purchased both of mine used.call Chuck tomorrow and ask if he has a used 15....If it were me that is what I would purchse again....the 15-17

I have a baileys and it has served me well. As with anything there is a learning curve. In the next couple of weeks I'm going to be making videos about the machine and posting them on youtube and my blog. So you might want to keep a look out there. My blog is posted at the bottom of this post. Also as mentioned above you might sign up for the Baileys group http://bhqbaileyhomequilter.proboards.com/index.cgi? theres a couple of machines listed there for sale.

Thank you for all your replies I appreciate the time! I am a Canadian Snowbird so it is likely that I will purchase
the machine while in the south, no one seems to own one around my part of Ontario. Thanks again
