Frame drop or plunger drop type? For a new machine this is the main question. After 35 years in the frame drop camp, we can confirm that the plunger drop system is vastly superior, especially for todays light microfibre fabrics. The 7100SB with “thread nipping device” (to allow easier removal fo the hemmed fabric) is essential as is our #1 SewQuiet servomotor with synchronizer to position the needle always in the same position. These are key features that you can expect from Reliable.
For hemming pants, skirts and dresses, the 7100SB with “thread nipping device” (to allow easier removal of the hemmed fabric) offers the whole package. Low noise and vibration design, outstanding build quality and reliability.
The solid frame construction on the 7100SB (as compared to a frame drop type machine) ensures less vibration, and ultimately a better quality stitch than frame drop machines.
Adjustable Stitch Penetration
The adjustable stitch penetration dial allows the user to modify the depth of the needle penetration, ensuring that the stitch does not show on the outside of the fabric.
NEEDLE EYE GUARD
To protect your eyes, the 7100SB is equipped with a clear plastic eye guard.
Getting the performance you want out of a sewing machine requires the right motor. The fourth generation SewQuiet 6000SM servomotor is the benchmark in the industry.
UBERLIGHT 3000TL SMD-LED
The perfect add on light ($99.00 retail value) is included at no extra charge for the 7100SB making it both a great blindstitch machine and a great value.
Others skimp on the stand components, we don’t. We use only 100% plywood in our tabletops (not cheap particle board) and our legs are made from heavy-duty 3/32" steel.
