sewing machine advice

I am in the process of purchasing a sewing machine for some winter projects. I will start small and go from there. In a second hand shop here in town there is a machine called a TacSew that was originally to be used in an upholstery shop. It looks barely used and comes with a table to mount it on. As near as I can tell the only controls on it is a fast/slow knob and and on/off switch. Will this machine do different kinds of stitching. Also on another downside the machine is run off of a small motor underneath the sewing machine. The guys is asking $300 for it, but I think he is subject to taking quite a bit less. I tried to load some pictures but I kept getting an error message saying I had a security token issue.

On another note Defender has a Reliable Barracuda Sewing Machine
listed for sale at a decent price. How does this machine stack up to a sailrite.
