This is a repeat of my mesage posted under general sewing information. Thought I would try it again posting it under equipment and supplies.

I have been using steam generator irons for the past few years. I make handbags and use a lot of iron on battings and heavy interfacings. I also like the powerful steam for pressing seams on the heavy tapestys that I often use for both handbags and jackets. I own two Bernina steam generator irons and have spent way too much money keeping them repaired. Before that I had a Euro Pro and had the same problem. When they work they do a great job, but there are too many repair problems and it is getting prohibitively expensive to keep using these irons.
Does anyone know of another reliable brand of iron where I can get good steam pressing for adhereing heavy interfacings and good all around pressing on heavy fabrics, both for prepressing the fabric and for pressing seams while I am sewing.
Would appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.
