I'm getting a little frustrated with the old Singer machine I have and it'll cost enough to have it serviced that I'm not sure it's worth it (it was not well-cared for and has some corrosion on internals). I've seen advice that older machines are better, but are there any basic contemporary machines that merit a recommendation? Brother machine for ~ $150 seems to have good reviews, and that's about the range I'd tend to have in mind. Mostly, I'm going to be sewing ripstop, silnylon, mesh, and other light stuff, but will want to be able to sew through light webbing for tarp tie-offs, e.g. And of course, I want something that has reasonable durability, but it'll be more like a couple projects a year than a couple projects a week. Recommendations?
