Inferior copy products are widely advertised on the internet. Some are easy to identify because of their low price, but others are less obvious.
As a retail & trade supplier for over 50 years; we try to offer goods to suit most budgets, but we have found a lot of copy & "look alike" products in our sector are of poor quality when compared to the genuine article. Some do not meet with European safety requirements even though they falsely display a CE conformity mark.
Our workshops receive many repair requests from people who have purchased copy products elsewhere: only to find once they fail, support is not available because of poor build quality or safety issues.
As a general rule, in the clothing & textile industry, cheap copy products are usually cheaply made with cheap components.
If you are unsure of what product to purchase, give us a ring and we will do our best to recommend a product which matches your requirements.
If your budget does not allow for a good quality new machine then a good quality second hand or reconditioned machine may be better than a poor quality copy machine.
Cheap does not always equal value for money.
