WOW WOW WOW !!I have an old REX blindstitch with the table and the big clutch motor and the whole nine yards, My wife Carolyn saw this machine on here and mentioned it to me, and I figured, I know REX is good so lets try it, this is one neat machine, it is same material( i think cast iron) and it is as strong and sews as good as my big one, it has a neat lil motor packaged in the back of the machine. I dont care if you'r a tailor like my self or dry cleaners or whatever, if you need a blindstitch get this one, you dont need the big one anymore,thats it..
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I'm using this for custom drapery making and it has already saved me tons of time versus hemming with my sewing machine. It was a little sticky when I first got it but this has improved with oiling and running it. However if you don't know already knowhow to use a blindstitch hemmer you will definitely NOT be able to figure out how to do it by reading the supplied printed instructions as they have been so poorly translated from chinese as to make very little sense.
I have been sewing (clothes, drapes, curtains,etc.) for a long time and used to do the hemming manually to make it look descent. This machine is great and saves me a lot of time. My work now looks professionaly done. The only thing I had a hard time is threading the curved needle.
we own a mens clothing store an needed a new blindstich machine for hemming pants. everyone we looked at was very expensive, $700.00 an up. i did a search on line an found that you had one at a very good price!!!. i ordered it an my husbend and myself are very pleased. we attched it to a work table and it is everybit as good as our old table modle. it is not big but sturdy and does a very good job. i would order this machine again and highley recomend it to others. thank you overstock you came to my rescue agsin.

I have been using this machine in my alterations and tailoring business for over 5 years now, with absolutely no problems. It has followed me from an at home part time business, to a full time downtown business without a hiccup! The directions were not good when I purchased mine, maybe they have improved. There is really not much to know, I have taught several helpers in a matter of minutes.

I am a tailor for a large, well known, top end clothing store and this machine compares to what I use at work. I do some alterations at home for clients and this machine is going to cut my sew time in half, if not more. The only down side is that all the oil had spilled out in transit, but that was an easy fix.The instruction manual isn't as good as I expected, but it explains some things. I have already suggested to other tailors to buy this machine for their homes. I am very pleased with it so far and have used it already.
