Re: Sailrite LS-1 or LSZ-1?

We also have the LSZ. My wife does all of our canvas and is working on redoing the cushions this winter. She also checks each of our sail panels on each sail for thread degradation every winter.

As far as using a cheap machine, thats fine, but the portability of the Sailrite machine copupled with the heavy weighted wheel have made it a must for cruisers who may need to sew without electricity.

We have had zero probelms with our LSZ1 in 6 years and it has already paid for itself 5 times over just in sail loft expenses.
