This machine is simple yet powerful for sewing through heavier projects.

alert Dislikes

Very few cons mentioned in online reviews. Some users experienced thread bunching problems or the machine giving up on leather. Other reviewers remind users to always replace the needle that comes with the machine with a new needle and be very careful with the threading. The threading instruction picture in the instruction book is a bit tricky. Don't forget to thread the little bracket that is above the needle. It is step 7 in the book, but not obvious in the picture and not obvious on the machine. The thread first goes through the fairly obvious metal holder in step six, then it needs to go in that little tiny bracket, a small piece of metal that is laying on top of the needle mount. If you don't thread that, the thread will ball up underneath and mess up your sewing and lock up.

Summary

For a simple, heavy duty machine under $200, this machine is a great choice.
