    The machine seems like it is well built. It's heavy. Some of the cons: no light on the machine, the knee control is sort of short, and the directions are horrible. I can't believe a company like Rex would put out such bad directions. Took me over 3 hours to figure out how to get the threading done right. There are very few youtube videos on this model. The only saving grace is that many blind hem machines are made similarly to the Rex, so you will have to search for help by just entering blind hem machines.

  • 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..

    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.
