I shot a quick video of my BL9 just after I cleaned and oiled it.

It is not up to my usual video quality because I quickly grabbed my iPhone to capture it. Hopefully, it will be helpful anyway.

To my surprise the frame and all moving parts, except for the rotory gear, was metal. Very unusual for an entry level machine these days.

VERY unexpected!! I sewed on one years ago and thought it was "different" (as in better). I knew it was a quality machine by the sound and feel of it. I had the same feeling w/ Janome's L-108 which is now the HD1000. I would bet that one is similar under the hood or possibly it is just the metal frame that makes it feel that way. This is great to know there are so often people wanting just a basic solid, capable machine at the under $200 price-point and this one looks like a winner! As I watched your video, i thought how cool it'd be for a machine to have a clear plastic housing bc that was beautiful to see! Thanks for sharing!

Maybe because it's Babylock? I have an entry-level Bernette that is solid metal inside.

No, not that it has any particular brand name on it. My surprise more came from the low entry level cost.

Thanks! The insides impressed me too when I unscrewed everything. I love being able to go in and get everything cleaned and oiled on my own.

Thanks for taking the time to do this. I'm also impressed with the quality from the low price range. I know, at times, they even have them on special for about $100.

I am glad you all found it useful.

I'll try to remember to do the same on the other machines when I tear them down for cleaning.
