Looked on internet and cannot find any source for parts or service! It's your $$ glad its not mine! Seriously, be very careful and prudent, wait and I'm sure something better will come along. I would even go for a home machine first.

Never heard of that embroidery machine before. I use SWF and that is what I would recommend.

yeah I looked online for hours as well . Only thing comes up is someone selling them on alibaba.com . A international trading site . price is $15000 .
I dont think I will even bother going to look at it . She also told me that it need to be set up before using by a tech ???
Anyway there is a emc6 black head somewhat local that i will be looking at this monday .
Can anyone give me some pointers on what to look for while inspecting the machine .
machines hasnt been used in a couple of years . comes with software , hoops and cap attachment . for under $1500

See it run both caps and flats and check sewouts. Run your own files. Ask about maintenance and repairs. Would the seller be willing to have a tech look at it? How old is the software? Can it be loaded on a newer computer? Is there any support if you have questions? Is there machine tech support in your area?

It is one of those China machines, stay away from them the life span on them are not long, you will have nothing but problems. Go with the major brands, Melco, Braudan, Toyota. Myself I am going for the Melco Amaya XT on Tuesday. I have been looking for 6 months. I am going Brand new, but I am located in Costa Rica and not much choice if I want Tech support which is very important. But lots of better used machines out there then this machine. Hope this helps.
