Review: I've been waiting a few years for JUKI to get this machine. Air threading! Yeaaaaay!
The first JUKI I bought back in 2006 was the mo 734 De and I loved it so much! A couple years later got the JUKI 735 combo.
Needless to say I was thrilled to get this NEW JUKI 1000
Right and left needle auto threader=LOVE/easy
Fast!=1500 stitches a minute
Easy width adjustment
Differential feed & length adjustments
Improved design for serging corners
Bright led light
Takes regular needles:NOTE (does not take special serger needles)
2thread rolled hem lever=easy(no extra part to loose)
Knife swings up=easy
Tension reliable! Usually all knobs set on 4
Beautiful stitches! Just amazing! Gush gush ;)
Thread cutter=poor:NOTE(you'd think with this new JUKI they'd improve the cutter?)
Thread may get caught in air threading tube
When switching from 2 thread back to 3 or 4 make sure you disengage the converter lever Or the machine won't sew correctly......(ask me how I know?)
I did have an issue with the air pipe being clogged(my error) so I called Ace Sewn n vac,Where I bought it and they paid to pick it up.I wasn't charged to have it "de clogged"
I did pay for the return shipping though.It was only $21.00
I think I probably could have fixed it myself but I lost the tool to do so and that canned air wasn't working.
The other reviewer had an issue with the foot control But I haven't had a issue so far?
One thing I've learned about the foot controllers, don't drop them on the floor!
You know.... you kinda toss them down and don't think anything of it? Well the inside parts can break or come apart.It cost me 95.00 to replace one on my JUKI 734DE
Final score on the JUKI 1000= A+
