Extra Needles Thread Stand 2 Screwdrivers (1 Philips head- 1-standard) 5-piece allen key set 1-Tweezer 1-Plastic Oiler 2- Machine Clamps Electronic Foot Speed Controller Knee lifter 2-replacement brushes for the motor Instruction & Part manual. Specifications Speed, Up to 1200 Stitches per Minute Stitch Length, 3-8mm Needle: LWx6T Presser Foot Height: 7mm Motor, 110 Volts. 5.0 out of 5 stars. Amazing hems for a great price. The hems are neat, you cannot see them on the right side of the fabric.The machine came oiled but will need oiling soon so if you are thinking of purchasing it, make sure you have some oil ready in the storage. The machine has a strong odor but that should go away in few weeks. It works great on thin as well as thicker fabrics.
From my experience, it catches hem easier if the fabric is not ironed. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants clean hems (curtains, blankets) or clothing alterations. I learned how to use it by watching You Tube videos and reading manual.The hemmer is sturdy and heavy but small enough to move around and set up whenever and wherever you need. 4.0 out of 5 stars. So far, very satisfied with this machine. It does a GREAT blind hem stitch.
I used white thread on black pants, and the stitch was still practically invisible. This is my first blind hem machine, so I was intimidated a bit by the look of the machine and thought It would take forever to figure out how to use. I was up and running in 10 minutes. The only downside of this product is the smell of machine oil.
It reminds me of the smell at a car mechanics shop. Other than that, the machine is worth the investment.
It arrived when it was supposed to. Great little machine for the price. Others mention the "translated" manual and are accurate when they say it is horrible. Veterans will love it and newbies will grow to love it.Worth more than I paid IMHO. Portable blind stitch machine RX518. This machine arrived quickly, although it was oily, as if something tipped or spilled over it. It was small and easy to set up. I had a difficult time getting it to work correctly using a medium weight thread- it kept jamming- but it works beautifully with a light weight clear nylon thread.
It runs very loud and the plastic pedal is not as good quality as the sturdy machine itself. It runs very fast which takes getting used to. The manual is terrible translation and is worthless- but you can find similar machine videos on You Tube to assist in set up. Overall, it is a good, relatively inexpensive very sturdy machine, ideal for home or small business use.
I have already recommended it to other people who sew. However, we decided to take a chance anyway.
She has over 30 years' sewing experience (both industrial and home sewing), and I have about the same time working in IT. We figured that we could get the thing going between the two of us.
What follows are some of the issues we encountered getting the RX-518 to work, and how we overcame them: 1. This machine came with the worst manual that I have ever seen. Do yourself a favor and immediately throw the manual away before setting up the machine--it'll save you at least an hour's worth of frustration if you do. Watch a few YouTube videos on setting up the machine instead; they'll have you running in just a few minutes. I still rated the RX-515 a solid 5 stars, even though the supplied manual is horrendous, because the machine works so darned well once you get it running!
I can't get the machine to do straight stitches! Although this is a small machine, it is industrial-grade, designed to provide thousands of trouble-free hours of service. However, the machine will NOT work correctly if there is anything wrong with how it's threaded. The thread must run precisely along the intended path, with no tangles or twists.It has to go through the tension discs correctly, and be routed UNDER the needle. There are some excellent YouTube videos that can show you how to properly thread the machine. It is essential that you get this right! At first, my wife was having problems getting the machine to work right. She thought she had the machine threaded right.
For a moment, I was afraid we were going to have to return it. Then she noticed that the thread had worked its way under the cone on the supply reel. This is an amazing machine.
I just couldn't get the professional result on many of my blind hems with my regular sewing machine, but this machine does the job beautifully!!!! It's very easy and fast to thread and it's very easy and fast to operate. You definitely should look on youtube for a video tutorial because the instructions aren't very good, as others have said. I did and I had mine up and running in 10 min. It is smaller in size than I expected and that's a bonus!The item "REX RX 518 Portable Professional Grade Desktop Blind Stitch Sewing Machine" is in sale since Friday, July 21, 2017.
