Commercial Sewing Machine
Posted 12 December 2016 - 12:14 AM
Most indutrials have a single function only, although a zig machine can be set as a straight stitch. There are some Bernina semi industrials that might fit. Cant remember the model number off the top of my head. Be aware these machines have their own dedicated table with thread tree and are usually 2' x 4' in size. They are heavy, and sometimes louder than you think.
Which machine would be best depends on what you plan to be sewing.

Although older industrial machines have a single function, Juki has multi-function machines and they are very high quality. Many manufacturers use them.
Although Bernina makes high-quality machines, their semi-industrial machines is very expensive compared to the commercial machines. My home sewing machine machine is a Bernina. I have several and like the 930 best. I have a Consew industrial that only straight stitches--no bells or whistles. They are well priced and work well.
If you're buying an industrial machine, talk with your local dealer. Often you can buy a used machine. Like any machine, a dealer that will service your machines is critical.
