Default Older Barudan

Can't help but notice all the older Barudan's on the market - the kind with the round sewing heads. What's up with these machines? Age means nothing to me - but are these machines worn out, unable to be used with modern software, hard to find parts for, or okay for the person willing to put up with an extra thread break or two in exchange for a very low price tag?

They are called Turret head machines.

There is nothing wrong with these machines, it was just an old-style way of doing things.

Be careful when buying them though, MOST (but, not all) turret heads are bridge machines, meaning they sew flat items only, they are not tubular with a radial arm to put a garment over, They typically use what is called spider-frames.

In the rare event you find a turret head that is tubular, I don't recommend doing caps on them, they have a habit of catching the bill and in some cases tearing it right off.

I still have a turret head in my shop, she's an "old girl" but still gets it done. Its a 1990 (I think) and still going.

Barudan anything will never do you wrong.
