If you go to there is a Brother PE Design 150 embroidery machine for sale for £550 ono. If it doesn't come up from the search word, go into the "Office & Business" section then select Business Opportunities. The machine is in Wishaw. I don't know a thing about them so I don't know whether this is a good buy or not, I just remembered having seen it in Wednesday's paper.

Best of luck.

If you can't find the ad give me a call.

you can buy a new single head for approx £7k

the last 2nd user machine I saw was a 6 head for £6K.

We looked at 2nd user machines, but were put off by how much some machines were used. Some were being used 24/7.

The new machines have a quite running mode/modifercation. I wish we had waited 3 months more, and our machine would have had this feature. A real ear saver..

So we decided to go for a 4 head/12 needle SWF. 2 years parts and labour.

"Tajima" and "happy" are good makes too. Theres brother & melco too. plus a couple more I can`t remember.

I think the model mentioned is a hobby machine/add on to a home sowing machine. £500 way too cheap for an industrial model,unles its a dog.

Don`t forget you will need specialist software to "digitize" your designs, or you can go to a design bureau for the designs/logos. Signlab is £cheap compared to embroidery software. I was quoted £12k @ printware and promotion show, by wilcom.
