    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Small size
    - Easy to use if you know how to use a big machine (not too hard to figure out from the Engrish instructions otherwise with help from the pictures)

    Cons:

    - No good way to start or end stitches
    - Your hand will get tired from the squeeze action

    OtherThoughts:

    Right handed design (cannot be used with left hand)
    I leave a length of loose thread at the beginning and end in order to 'end'. At the last stitch, I use a regular need to feed the extra loose thread through the last loop on the bottomside- this will lock the stiches in place.

    Bottomline:

    Good for light jobs, such as hemming pants and seams. Wouldn't recommend denim, curtains, heavy linens.
