Advice on Consew 266-R Can't Post

I have a lead on this model machine, but at this point I know very little about the different machines. This one looks as though it would be good for harness and container work. Is that a correct assumptions? What would be a fair price for this machine?

I might pass on this one as I am more interested in something I can use on canopies, as this would be my first machine and I'm guessing I'll have more call to do that than harness work. Any recommendations for a good all-purpose, but suitable for canopy, machines? I searched some old threads but they were, well, old.

Are you sure you have the model right? There apparently was a Consew 266 but I can't find a parts diagram or a even a photo of the thing anywhere. Only very passing references for a couple of parts. If that's what it is it's an oddball.

No, I got the model number wrong. It is a 226, not 266. I have not looked at the machine but that is what it is advertised as. Here is some of the text from the add:

Used Consew model 226R-1 industrial sewing machine with WALKING FOOT.* Includes stand (table), Premier II "C"-series clutch motor, bobbin winder, thread rack, and lamp. Comes with extra bobbins & needles, oil, and owners manual. This is a very heavy duty machine, which sews at a much higher speed than a domestic or "home" sewing machine

I've also found this one. From the pictures it looks like a more appropriate machine for what I am looking for, but I am again interested in feedback, it doesn't seem to be one of the model numbers referenced in threads here:

The Consew 226 is simply a Consew 225 with reverse.

Great sewing machine for heavier type work. It will sew up to and including "F" thread.
It also has a horizontal hook.


The 7360 is a single needle, drop feed machine that works great for light to medium sewing repair.

It is a self oiler and when used with a servo motor, is a tame, easy to use sewing machine for the beginner.

This is the same sewing machine that we use in Dave DeWolf's course. We have 10 of them there.

Cheers,
MEL
