Have you sewn on a Juki household machine? I ask because the model you show is - in my opinion - quite nice. It resembles an industrial Juki in design, which will make it easier to transition to a heavier machine, later. It also looks like a single-needle lockstitch. And, I love that it has a knee lift - I haven't seen that on a household machine, before. And, I tell you, it's the number one reason I don't like sewing on household machines if I can help it - I really like keeping two hands on the work!
We don't get that sort of Juki machine in Germany. The shops only carry the regular brands like Pfaff, Husqvarna, Brother, Bernina and alike.
I have a household zig-zag I use for buttonholes and bar tacks, but the rest are industrial machines I found on Ebay.
The main distinction between the household machines is the hook. There are some with an industrial like hook(Umlaufgreifer), while the majority of the cheap ones have a "swing forth and back" version, which is much slower(Schwingspulengreifer).
I like Juki machines because they are very reliable. the owner of a sewing company told me that they are better than Pfaff machines, and that meant something in those days.
Today most industrial machines are made in China, even the top brands. The lower price is a good indicator.
