Hi folks,

Has anyone had any experience sewing with a Brother Exedra machine? I found a local one for a really great price and I'm trying to figure out what types of fabric it excels at sewing. This would be my first industrial machine.

Thanks!

You would need a model # instead, that would most likely be on a metal plate on it someplace. It might start with DB possibly. Exedra means not much more than just Brother. And they make a whole lot of machines! Once you had your exact model # instead, then you would know class and type of machine, and could look at it's instruction book, and see what it's specifications were. But even then, since it could maybe be set up different ways, with different feed dogs and plates and such, and even made/adjusted for different sized needles and such too, just because something is a particular model #, does not always tell you all that, if there were more than one feed dogs or stitch plates or such, that a machine could be set up with. But that is where you would start, with the model #.

Thanks for your reply. I contacted the owner asking for the model number and found that they are unsure. Given that this would be my first industrial machine, I'm going to pass. Thanks for your input though, I didn't realize the Exedra brand was so homogenous.

I'm looking to find a machine that I can switch up and use shirt-weight denim all the way up to denim and leather. As I understand it some machines are capable of this switch but it will require some time to switch it over.
