Difference in used millies

Recommended Posts

HI

I am thinking if I do decide to purchase I am thinking a certified apqs millie may be the way to go.

What are the differences in the years models

I see they start 2001 on the site up to 2008.

Any advantage of one over the other?

The financing will not be an issue that is in place already?

Does it make sense to buy a used millie and use the difference in the cost for extras?

Is the new a better option with the 1000 off?

Thanks

Eileen

Hi Eileen.

With the New Millie you get the 3 year warranty and the new led lighting system that allows for better visibilty when working from the front. It also has the built in black light, built in laser light, no more plug in module sitting a the back of the machine, new easier to read guages or led readouts for the controls and a centrally located power switch. Some of this may not mean much to you if you haven\'t worked on an older millie.

With a used machine, they have been completely gone over and provide you with a one year warranty. Only you can determine pricewise, which way is best for you. If you do decide to go used, keep in mind that after the warranty expires, replacement parts are not expensive and most things can be done yourself with very limited down time.

Good luck in your decision, you will enjoy the Millie either way you go.

Yes, the 2008 used should have all of the new features with the exception of the 3 year warranty. As of my last update, I don\'t believe there are any 08 used models left. Your rep can check into this when you see her.

The main difference between the used models is the look.

The older models have the red, white and blue dials for stitch length, the newer models have a more modern digital dial and the new 2008 Milles have a black face with red digital dot.

Green Milles are a great buy.
