I know where TAT is coming from. I had no idea what to buy, and found a local sewing machine dealer near to me in the MIdlands, and I asked him. He pointed towards a chinese import machine (a Wimsew W3300) This machine is useful as it will sew pretty well anything I throw at it, is walking foot and carries the majority of the samr parts as a Highlead machine. It is a highlead - rebadged.
The clutch motor was too much for me to get used to, and so I bought a Jack servo motor to replace it, and now I have a machine that I can use. Overall I have spent around £600 on my machine, and now I actually know better I would go for an Durkoppf Adler 291 machine, but these are trade machines , quite expensive (~2k GBP) and rarely come onto the UK market.
