we run our tajimas at 700. I figure that is not bad for an older machine... I am not sure what they are recommending for a new machine. I would be interested in finding this out.

Our brother machines we run at 500 for some reason any more than this we have problems. My guess is if i spent the time to tun it we could run it faster

I am running my older tajima 2 head at between 800 and 900 everyday all day but this machine is only used for tackle twill so it is only doing zigzag and running stitches. Our 8 head runs between 650 and 750. We run all of our Barudans (12 head, 2-6 heads, 4 head and single) around 650.

This is a "definite maybe" situation. It depends on the job. I have 2 tajima NEO2's that I use to take with me as a road machine to festivals, events, bike weeks etc. and I usually run it anywhere from 700 to 900. If I am doing a thicker canvas bag I tend to run it around the 700 to 750 range, a fleece sweatshirt or a knit beanies, crank that puppy up to 900. Caps I don't like to do on my tajima, but in the event I do them, I keep it around 550 to 600 max.

I have a 99 4 head tajima that we typically run at about 750 to 800 for fleece & polo's

Typically I have found that tajimas don't like to run (or at least not well) above the 850-900 ish mark.

I just bought a 2009 8 head stretch barudan. I run that thing at 1000 all day every day for fleece and it will rock on all day long. I am actually as I am typing this running a 82,000 stitch job at 1000 spm on denim jacket backs, and haven't had a thread break yet. and I've been running this way for 2 days. I can run caps at 800 and it purrs right along.

On a personal note ... I do think that tajima makes a far superior single head machine than Barudan, but when it comes to multi-heads, I will never buy anything other than a barudan.

thanks for the feedback, i wish i had a single head tajima, i have a few zn's my tajima is a 6 head and ive been running it at 850 and im finding it runs better than if i was to run it at 700 but its at max speed. so im going to see. my zn 15 barudan is insane! that machine is a horse. my 4 head zq i run at 1000 all the time. like you, so i know this machine can do that. i really like barudan, sews so much better..
haha

why do people think your nuts?? do you do alot of applique and such??? if so and you have the money and the demand, for the stuff why not. very few people have this machine. exp$$
ive done maybe 4 applique or twill etc jobs in my whole life. im a left crest and bag kinda guy, so i bought a automatic bag hooper, haha, people thought i was insane, but honestly if your doing alot of one thing, its best to be the BEST at that thing. i think if you need it go for it. i wanted to get a chenille machine just for my own personal fun, see thats stupid. your idea works
