a few specific questions

I've read tons of good info about these machines here on this site, and am about to buy one or the other. I have a dealer who is restoring one or two 98Q's that they took a few parts from for repairs (new machines!) and I think the price for one would be about half or just over for what the 2010Q would cost. That's hard to pass up! The weaker light on the 98 can be remedied, so my main questions are about the foot control thread cutter and speed control. I've tested the newer style foot control, and it is so responsive, I'm not sure I would need/use the speed control (presume the old one is as responsive). Opinions? Also, the heel thread cutter....does anyone have trouble accidentally cutting the thread, especially when you rotate your leg a bit to use the knee lifter? It seems like the 98Q side button cutter would be harder to "oops".

The main reservation with the 98Q, and it is a small one, is that IF the dual component foot controller ever goes, it is about a $300 part, as opposed to the new integrated ones around $100 (that would wipe out a chunk of my "savings" lol). Any heavy users ever have their foot control go out??

Any opinions on these or other nuances between the two are welcome...I'll be jumping on this as soon as one of those 98Q's is ready for a test run and side-by-side comparison with the 2010Q! Thanks!

hI, I own the 2010q and I have never accidentally cut the thread when using the knee lift. You have to presser a little harder for it to cut the thread. I am sorry I have never owned a 98q for comparison with the 2010q but have read that people prefer the 2010q over 98q. If you are concern with price a Brother 1500pq has a lots of great reviews too.

I bought a used TL98E a fews ago for about $495 and I love it. The first time I used it at home, I hit the thread cutter by mistake--so I ended up disconnecting it. Not sure of you can do that with the newer model.
Mine does not have speed control, but I've learned to deal with that by practicing. My Viking does have it, and never use it anyway.
No regrets with the older model and very happy with the price.

I have the 2010q and I have accidentally cut threads when fmq, this is a real pia especially when using aurifil. The cotton thread is not easy to pull through 3 layers and tie off. I have had my Juki for about 7 weeks, love it. The lighting is terrific and the speed control is helpful, although I am not sure you really need it if you fmq already. The replacement of the foot pedal would be something to consider. Raicherts and Ken's have very good deals on the 2010 right now.
