I believe the Redline comes out of the Feiya plant which isn't a good plant.
This is completely untrue. The Feiya plant does not produce the Redline. Everything in the world is marked up, Redline just simply doesn't mark up as high as other companies.

And many machines, even the biggest brand names, have changed to having their machines or parts from their machines made in China.

They have a couple of facebook groups, one for owners and one for lookers. I'm a member of both and they let me stick around the owners page because I give good advice and don't trash their machines even though I don't own one. They use Tajima hoops and I believe are at least partly made in Japan. They claim the machine is mostly metal, very little plastic and that they're easy to work on.
The company has been around for 6 years now. Original owners are still with their machines and still pushing out production. We have big businesses here in Florida running these machines 16 hours a day, 6 days a week and they are holding up.

If you are interested in a new SWF shoot me a PM since I am now a distributor for Sunstar. I would take a Tajima, Barudan or SWF even a Happy before I ever thought about a Chinese machine
This is completely untrue. They are not ran out of their house/garage. And the man selling them IS a technician, has been since 1992. They have demonstration machines out of a house in Florida. The one in Texas is the distributor and that is where they come from.

And you might want to find out more about the brands you are promoting. Most these days are actually using parts and having their machines assembled in China.

I guarantee you they are a great machine! The plant that manufactures is a private plant and one that is great at their job. These machines are going every day into high production and the owners are running them long and hard. And they hold up to the production.

I'd love to tell you more.

I don't know a lot about machines, but I know that there is no way a Chinese machine is anywhere near as good as my Barudan. I had a SWF and I would probably go as far to say it can top a SWF but not a Barudan.

I have customers who have both. Yes, Barudan is a great machine. But people who own both are still happy with both machines. And they are similar to the Tajima machine. Some companies go above and beyond to make a good product, Redline is one of those companies.

I got one about 2 months ago after using a home machine for 2 1/2 years. The manual is unreadable Chinglish. They don't tell you what the parts are that come with it. I was left wondering how to even embroider anything with it. The 'support' is pathetic. They refer you to their You Tube channel and don't specify that most videos there are for a previous model. The woman at Redline does not provide useful help. I called once and was transferred to Orlando, their tech. He was very defensive and unsympathetic and just said nobody else has any problems. Well, I do. When confronted with the fact that I wasn't made aware of a dealer an hour from me before I bought directly from them, he forwarded me to the dealer. The dealer/tech has been out here twice. I keep having the same issue when embroidering something that uses vinyl on both front and back (I do in the hoop embroidery, not shirts and hats and stuff). Constant thread breaks/shredding and birdnesting on the back. I took out my old $300 Brother SE400 and made the items with no problems. Their return window is 15 days with a 15% restocking fee. They are apathetic at best. I am a small business owner, and the unreliability has hurt my business and made me dread having to make anything on it.

They are a rebadged tajima. I have a highland 1501c which is the same machine. Very durable and easy to work on. Have not had one part break or issue that wasnt operater error. The one i just bought 6 months ago has a break away recipacator which means wont break in event of hitting hoop. So see which model it is. I am very happy with mine.

Btw way i got mine from mesa and they have machine and software help. They use skype to walk u thru issues such as first setting machine up. I have had to use them one time in 6 months and that was cause i had thread/tension wrong. Otherwise i have not had to buy a part for it other then needles. Check out mesa.com they also sell refurbed for around 6

You get what you pay for is a fair description of the Chinese machines but when you break that down is that really a bad thing? I say not.

When we got into the embroidery business in the mid 90's The best price I could find on a new 6 head machine was $30,000.00 and that was a year old display model that the head of SWF US operations in Miami was willing to sell me. He explained that he could probably sell it for half of that if he didn't have to include the warranty but His head office wouldn't allow him to sell in the US without it.

I then came across the Chinese machines and I was about to buy one from a factory who's name I've forgotten but their machine was not ISO9001 certified. I then found Feiya. The machine, landed in our shop (with about $4,000.00 local import taxes) was $16,000.00. That machine paid for itself 100 times over before we sold it for $7,000.00 about 10 years later.

I'm not claiming that they're as good but they are definitely worth their price, and that was then, I imagine they've improved a lot since.
