Need to you invest in a Sailrite Sewing Equipment?





This 7 days we do a comparative critique of the our new Sailrite stitching equipment and the old workhorse Janome.
For people of you contemplating no matter if or not you have to have one, we hope we response some critical concerns about the suitability for boats.

Thanks so substantially for observing! Make sure you subscribe, go away a remark and give a thumbs up.

  3. Thanks for the honest review. Quick question as I am interested in making my own cockpit enclosure, what was the approximate cost of doing it yourself? Is it worth spending the money for the Sailrite and materials and doing it yourself? I know nothing about sewing and would have to teach myself from YouTube and trial and error. What’s the learning curve and therefore the cost in time? Thanks and always looking forward to your videos.

  4. Good review. I had never wondered about that issue on my sailing plans.

  5. Thanks Nick, Nicely reviewed and this comes across as a 'fair and honest appraisal' of the two machines from a 'Sail User' perspective, particularly the Sailrite LZ1.  I also think you have 'hit the nail on the head' with regard to Sailrite 'quality disparity'. Chances are Sailrite source their accessories (possibly even the machine itself) from various Chinese manufacturers and market them under their own label.  I think its likely your 'Embuggerance' term derives from the well known and very English term of  'Buggeration', namely degree of 'frustration factor'.

  7. I just bought the same machine to convert my headsail for roller furling and I knew from previous experience neither of my Janomes could handle it. It worked wonderful. Right tool for the job. In your video you were applying binding. With your Sailrite you should have got a binding tool. If you learn how to use it (it’s not hard) your binding will go on perfectly and the finished job looks professional. The whole process is fast and almost fool proof.

    I agree about the light! Also I wish they had put an integrated thread cutter on the side. Even my old treadle has one. It is a pain to have to keep scissors handy. That’s my rant lol. Otherwise this is a great machine.

  8. Our sail rite was one of the first things we bought for our sailboat SV Nellie Jo. We love it and it travels with us everywhere on the boat. We have used it for installing luff tape on our two head sails and the sacrificial cloth. We made sail covers and others things. Again we loves ours and they are built tough! Thanks for the videos!

  10. Thanks Nick for the review, I've had a the same Sailrite machine for a few years now, I've done multiple large projects. I agree with you that this machine will sew through almost anything. Also, I agree with you about the light needing a plug on the machine. But, one of my biggest issues is that reverse/forward lever is very clunky, and the seam length setting is on the same lever. This caused inconsistency for me. The other issue is working with large projects is the "throat" area of the machine can limit how you put together a large project. The last issue is it would be nice to have a thread cutter attached to the machine like most sewing machines. But with this all said I would still recommend this machine. And I think Sailrite is a great company supporting their customers with great how to videos.

  12. You are so cute with your sowing. On a more serious note your hand work is great and you impressed the wife and I am sure all your fans so much. Great work mate. Wish I was that handy sowing. As always love you two, and your videos, two real people, lots of love from both.

  13. Nick, you are the only person I know that can casually use the phrase “sentient being” (in reference to the sewing machine) and not have it sound pretentious. Most of the folks I’ve met from the UK have a richer vocabulary compared to Americans but even so your vocabulary is impressive. Well done. Oh, and thank you for the useful sewing machine review.

  14. I can’t believe I’m watching a video about sewing machines. What have you done to me?!?!?!

  16. Nick – what have you done bro? Reviewing two sewing machines and you are neither cursing nor drunk. This is fucking bullshit. (said with all good intentions of course) I love you guys! Peace!  PS – review the damn lifting keel already!

  17. Nice job Nick! As guy who has spent plenty of time with a sewing machine, and watching you as you went along, I came pretty much to the same conclusions as you have here. Very nice review and hopefully Sailrite will take the information in the productive light that it was intended and clean up their issues.

    Happy New Years and for your resolution in the new year, go easy on your lady as she is a real prize. (FYI: I'm older than you and I've been married twice)

  22. Great honest review, thanks guys. Hopefully Sailrite will take on board your comments which sounded like they were valid and easy fixes. I would love a machine so one day. Question, these machines have a huge spool of thread on the outside but I assume the bobbin under the base is normal size. In a big job how often did you have to refill that? Cheers. Andy, UK

  26. A;most all my tools have rust. Not that I've mistreated them, it's just the environment. Will this new addition resist the tendency to rust?

  27. I thought about a Sailrite, but upon further research, it's not much different than a much less expensive Chinese industrial machine. I won't claim it is the same, but other than the color, mine looks virtually identical. The Sailrite is definitely more polished and works perfectly out of the box while the Chinese version needs a fair bit of tuning, but if you have worked with machines before it's not hard to tune and polish all the bits and the result is a machine that runs just as well for about the same price as the Janome. My Chinese machine only came with a cheap plastic case about the same size as the Janome case vs the heavy duty case.. Super powerful- I use it for Leatherwood and it goes through nearly half inch of vegetable tanned leather as easily as thin cloth. I agree that for clothing, a domestic machine is better – I use a Husqvarna myself but have had a Janome in the past..
