I recently received into the workshop a Bernina sport 801 sewing machine for a full service.
Bernina Sport 801 sewing machine :
These are great machines, and pretty much bullet proof in my opinion! They are nice and compact, which is ideal for taking to lessons and courses, and produce a very good stitch. As usual i open up the machine to inspect all of its parts and run a test stitch to check all the zig zag movements are fully operational. The shuttle area was very dirty so this received a good cleanup. Any debris in this area can affect the smooth running of the thread and therefore you end up with stitching issues. In the photos you can see the stitching from the machine, front and back, and as a result the tension is beautifully balanced (even if i say so myself!)
