Linesets - bar tackers vs zig zag with jig Can't Post

I'm curious what the feelings are on doing linesets with a classic zig zag machine versus a purpose-built bartacker. Obviously, the speed and quality of a purpose-built bartacker is ideal but for someone not doing the work often, how is the quality and appearance of line set work with a jig?

Do many riggers out there do the work without a bartack machine? I've seen nice jigs that straddle the line and allow the feed dogs to pull the work cleanly.

I've been looking at bartack machines and wondered about this... Without a lot of work on lines, I question the need to spend a lot of money on a machine. Any opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks!
