My Janome 7025 stopped working after 7 years because the hand wheel jammed. I got it repaired and serviced and the belt was replaced but it stopped working again soon after. I wanted to find something around £300 that will last hopefully, I need it to free motion quilt so I'm thinking I need a more powerful motor, I suspect that's what wore out my Janome.
Will a Janome 7025 Even Feed Walking Foot work on a Singer Heavy Duty 4423? I read that even though in general they're compatible and they're both low shank, Janome have proprietary feet. They are sometimes interchangeable but Janome have the hole in the needle plate slightly further back than other kind of machines. Will my specific model's walking foot will fit?
Also any other machines close to this one in price or better value that anyone would reccommend over this one? I was looking at this model as well (if I can find it cheaper):
