I use this for minor repairs to complicated fabrications. Of the four Husqvarna Designer machines I own I love the SE! However, the one manufactured in China is pure GARBAGE! It required a brand new tension module with only 12 hours total time and a new display screen only three weeks later. I own: 1 Platinum 750E, 2 Designer SE's, and 1 Designer Ruby. The Platinum and one "SE" is manufactured in Sweden and they work great, require very little adjustment or repair and I love them. The other two were manufactured in China and neither work right. I've spent thousands of dollars in repair plus struggled with dealers and the Husqvarna Company trying to find relief. Only one dealer within 50 miles of where I live has been honest and dependable with me. She repairs my machines without over charging and helps me any way she can. I only wish other dealers would be so good! Another local dealer charges for everything even when she doesn't fix it. I've caught her padding my bill more than once and her technicians are not good. All in all, it's a night mare for customers when these machines malfunction because every repair is extremely and where I'm concerned, the China made machines keep breaking down! I am definitely buying Brother or Bernina next time, that's for sure!!!
