I've been talking to some various machine dealers of both used and new around my area looking for a machine to sew #8 Cotton Duck Canvas (18oz weight)
Here's a short list of the machine I'm considering and have been recommended by various salespeople:
Tacsew 111 (<--seems identical to the Consew 205 to my eyes)
They're all close enough in price that it doesn't make a big difference. I only really need straight stitch with reverse. And I want the ability to use a binding attachment.
Can you fine folks help me choose a machine or at least help me understand why one might be better than another?

I have none of the ones you listed. Just wanted to point out all the sewing factories that make heavy duty stuff are equipped w/ Juki's.

You should ask aguywhosews about the Sailrite.
