As you may have read, I’ve taken my first real steps in to bagmaking. Rather than scratching the itch, it ignited a new level of obsession in me. In order to truly understand the craft, to really GET the art of making bags, I wanted to do it myself. And my experience, though short, was incredible.
So I’ve decided to buy an industrial machine.
The machine I used last week was the Juki 1508N. That was an incredible experience, but $2,000 is entirely too rich for my (or my wife’s) blood.
So, dear readers - does any one have any other suggestions? Any advice or things to think about? I’m considering the Sailrite LS-1, but the 1/10th HP and the smaller size does make me a little nervous.
