Absolutely fantastic machine
This is a straight stitch only machine. 1500 spm, but it does have speed control. Great throat space and easy access to the needle bar to change feet. I sew apparel, quilting and home Furnishing with no issues on this machine.
This machine sews everything for me from fine fabric to heavy layers. I have not sewn leather on it. But I have sewn multiple layers of vinyl, material, interfacing. Not a problem. The machine comes with a variety of feet which is excellent value.
Caution: remember to oil this machine often, daily if using daily.
Purchased in December 2020.
We will get along perfectly!
After having owned a number of Domestic Sewing Machines, most of which do not last due to the type of products I make; mainly handbags. I opted to purchase the Juki TL-2010Q.
It arrived last Friday, so over the weekend I was able to set it up and try it out, with different kinds of fabrics, Vinyl and Leather.
What can I say other than it is great. I tested out with around 12 layers of woven cotton, there is no chance that I would ever need to push this through a machine, I was doing it as a test.
OK I had to take is slow, but seriously, ...
Wow, why did I wait so long to get one of these? Sews everything with ease and fast. The unusual threading, thread cutter and bobbin seating take a little practice but once used to it you're away at full speed. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Questions & Answers
I am looking for a Maschine that will sew leather and I like to use a thicker thread. Do you know up to what size needle this Maschine will take?
There are a lot of different models of Juki. the Tl2010Q is a semi-industrial and I wouldn't recommend it for sewing leather. Look for something designed for the job or you'll be disappointed and waste your money. Elizabeth Machine Co in Melbourne and Sydney would be able to help you with this.
Throat space please
The throat space is 8.5 inches or 22cms. It's sold as a quilting machine and I've done small projects on it without any problem. I don't need to do bigger ones because I have a Gammill longarm. I love everything about this machine which I've owned for about 18 months. It's used almost every day sometimes up to 14 hours. It does have to be oiled regularly but I don't find that's a problem at all. I added an extra lighting strip because I found the existing light inadequate. Otherwise - love it!
