    Is this a commercial machine? If so i use to sew on one for years it was a good machine. 400.00 is a very good price. In fact i need one lol. I had an upholstery shop for years.

    I'd buy it.

    it sounds good, if the table is one of those thick wood tops, you're very lucky. What condition is the machine, etc?   Missouri Sewing Machine Company in Kansas City is my fount of knowledge for such questions.  1-800-257-4989

    btw, if you haven't sewn on commercial machines, you're in for a surprise.  you'll get the hang of it but be prepared, it's a tad different.

The DDL 8500. is a high quality, single needle, straight stitch, industrial machine. If it is still in a good condition and the present owner is prepared to guarantee it for at least 3 months, it is a good buy. Retail for app. $790.00 new.

Good luck

I am a swimwear designer and just got a juki ddl 8300n did I pick a good machine? How can I adjust the machine for a more stretchy stitch?! What number should my stitch dial be on to get a stretch?

Perhaps a manual would be helpful:

You should probably contact the manufacturer with questions. Hopefully, you did some thorough research before purchasing this machine. From the info I found, it appears to be a straight stitch only machine. I don't know anything about this machine, but I would be hesitant to purchase a straight stitch machine for sewing swimwear. Usually, swimwear needs a stretch stitch or zig-zag capability. Just my thoughts...

My bobbin stitch is too tight on my Juki DDL 8500-7, how can I fix this?

Hi LJ,
Look on the bobbin case, and see if there is a small screw. Usually that is the tension of the bobbin. You can adjust that until there is only slight tension on the bobbin thread.
Hope this helps
