Singer Mercury 8280 Nutznaht Sewing Machine (Household Goods)

Customer Review

I watch because of my height do not appear in the target market scheme of the apparel industry. This leads when buying clothes more or less always the same problems, especially in pants. Because it really starts at 32 length, these parts are too long even though they fit me prizipiell otherwise super. So that stuff has to be almost always shortened to me. For sewing / hemming by hand I am too impatient / clumsy and always to run for Änderungsschneiderei's too annoying, so the purchase of a sewing machine.

The Singer 8280 is a simple mechanical sewing machine with just a few stitches. Priced at less than 100 euros, the expectations of quality of materials and workmanship were not very high (in my case, "Made in Vietnam"). Here, however, surprised the machine with amazing sound metal structure under the plastic cover and decent processing (called "reference" is used here an ancient "Veritas" my mother from the GDR era, the years had experienced intense use). The durability / precision of Singer 8280 for a long time is probably another thing, here are higher quality and significantly more expensive machines (sewing machines), of course, give a much better picture.

For me as an absolute beginner and man on top of that but there were absolutely no problems in the first time operation (Install, connect, winding yarn and in's "boat" began, threading the needle thread, ready for the first test seam). Point deduction can be found here but because the packed in a plastic bag, extensive accessories including sewing machine oil was soaked in this very simply because halt any such a little Vietnamese (hopefully not a child) had the oil bottle is not turned off properly.
But with plenty of paper towels to let the back reasonably clean, just was just no more oil in the bottle it left where it really belongs to and from time nähmlich to the mechanics of Nähmschine.

The Nähmschine himself sews good (good sewing assuming!) My first reduction actions ran itself very well. The engine can be metered easily and runs nice and quiet, all controls provide solid quality. The printed on the housing Notes on thread guide permit commissioning without manual study. In bad sewing thread but there often annoying salad at lower thread, which always results in seam demolition. So for critical seams, etc. before the "Compatibility" betw. Yarn and machine NEM old cloth / T-Shirt test.

Conclusion: Much sewing machine for the money, decent quality (tactile and optical), attractive appearance, no unnecessary bells and whistles, as Haushaltsnähmschine and even beginners won't ideal and recommended. Who wants to devote the tailoring trade or be reference to specific sewing and embroidery techniques which engages anyway for something completely different and of course teuerem.
