Singer Model 6233, used
Singer Model 500A (all steel parts), used of COURSE
Brother PC-210 PRW limited edition project runway sewing machine, new
I could get either singer for $150, or the brother for a little over $300. Should I check into the singers? I know the guy who services them and he could tell me about them, also I would be able to sew on them to see if I liked them. But I also like the idea of the Brother. I just need to upgrade to something that won't need servicing very often. Right now I have one of the more expensive walmart singers from maybe 5 years back.

Maybe this review will be helpful:
In choosing a machine, you most need to consider the kind of sewing you do. If you do (or plan to do) machine embroidery, or freemotion quilting, you need to find something that accomodates those applications. If you are primarily doing straight seam stitching, a more basic machine is for you. Older, belt-driven, machines tend to need regular oiling and servicing. Do you use/need a lot of different presser feet? Might you want to add attachments later? Things to consider. GL :-)
