Elna or Euro-Pro Press machine
I am planning to purchase a “clamshell” press. I do a lot of tailoring, and am wearing myself out fusing with my iron. I want a press with a vacuum feature. I have located the Euro-Pro EP5500–sounds interesting. However, local dealers have worned me that these presses are unreliable, that the heating elements go bad, and that it is super difficult to get parts/service. Any suggestions?
I have had a Euro-Pro Electronic Steam Press (EP5100) for about five years. I hate to bate the Gods, but I have not had one bit of problem with this machine. While I don't use it regularly, I always use it to fuse tailored jacket interfacings. I bought the press on-sale from Montevilla Sewing Machines in Portland, OR. Whenever I am looking for a "deal" I always call Montevilla even though I live 5 hours south in Ashland, Oregon. Montevilla has an 800 number (800 854-1430) and they are a great place to comparative shop for prices. Beverly
