The NC1 single needle compound walking foot machine is a fantastic machine for the weekend warrior, hobbyist, or beginner! One of the industry’s best entry level machines, the NC1 is equipped with class leading 10 mm stitch length and 15 mm pressure foot lift and features a reverse lever, a large bobbin and safety clutch. NC created a machine that is not only reliable but also affordable, and The Lucky Needle brings it to you at a great savings! Don’t be confused by other clone machines on the market! These low-cost machines are outsourced and made with cheap parts, that often times did not pass Quality Control! In addition, these cheap machines rarely come with any warranty or support! The NC1 is by far the best entry level machine on the market, manufactured with quality parts, tested and backed by a company that offers warranty and support!
Here’s what John has to say: The NC1 is a great hobbyist or beginner machine. This machine comes with a great servo motor that is easy to control and learn on. I usually don’t recommend low cost new machines, as the quality is just not there. The NC1 however, is a quality machine, and at this price it’s a great deal for anyone just starting out!! If you are a weekend warrior, hobbyist or just someone who will do a few projects a year and wants something affordable, this is the machine for you!! However, if you plan on doing a large amount of upholstery work or are looking for business purposes, a higher quality machine, while a bit of an investment, will be well worth it. The NC1 is an entry level walking foot machine, and while the quality is there, it does not compare to the Juki 1541, NC6 or NC1508NH all of which have higher quality parts.
