Re: Sailrite LSZ-1

I have an LZ-1, it's a great machine... I found a good deal on mine years ago, but based upon the current prices, I might be looking for a less expensive alternative if I were buying again today...

One you might check out is this Barracuda from Defender...

Reliable Barracuda Sewing Machine



I have never seen one of these myself, but at least to my eye from the pics provided, it appears to be virtually identical to the Sailrite in most respects... have no idea about the weight of the balance wheel in comparison, but it might be worth investigating, or asking on a sewing forum whether anyone has any experience with one of these...
