Excellent machine! Solid, heavy, good quality parts. If you want the ability to fill a bobbin without the hassle of interrupting your sewing, this is the way to go. It actually does a better job (by that, I mean a tighter, fuller, and more even fill) than my Viking machine does. And, it is price competitive with alternative bobbin winders (Dritz and SideWinder) - although I have not used these, they appear to be made pretty much of plastic.
