Short & to the point review. If this machine didn't have a triple claw and silent speed, I'd donate it to the good will.
It takes a specialist to thread these damn machines. They are rock solid tube machines, but they lack user friendliness. There is no way to advance the frame a bit when needed in threading, and no loop restorer. If you have a bad splice you better be quick to shut the power off.

They had a good idea when they designed the 540, but they used this one instead [set5_b/set5_b/biggrinjester.gif]
