Review:
Lightweight, clean lines, great light, alot of feet with machine, added ruffler foot, this is my new primary machine, Taking owner classes monthly (2 per month), machine is easy to use, perfect stitches, alot of new features, great needle down positioning, lock stitches, new machine from Dealer, weekly use, heirloom sewing classes, has heirloom stitches like "feather stitch", etc, edge stitching, making my own entredeaux trim, faggotting (attaching 2 pieces together with a stitch) large bobbin and don't run out often. Babylock has a great website for classes, functions to use on machine and projects. Tons of needle positions automatically.Has a .7mm width for zig-zag, the most I've found. You can buy a Side cutter foot and use the overlock stitch like a serger.....wonderful, easy bobbin winder and automatic threader for needle......just a killer little machine.

Troubleshooting:
No oiling needed, maintenance free except for making sure there is no lint and thread in the bobbin area. I accidentally put my bobbin in upside down one time and the stitches were not good for 2 minutes until I figured it out. Great light for sewing at night.
