Don’t be put off from trying some lighter leather projects with our “modified for leather” sewing machines just because some alleged authority says that you can’t.
Aside from the higher price tags on commercial/industrial sewing machines, they are also very heavy, hard to move and take up considerable space in a domestic setting.
The smaller, modern day sewing machines designed for home use, especially inexpensive new machines, aren't set up to handle heavier materials such as upholstery, leather, denim and canvas.
Our skilled technicians have thoroughly cleaned and lubricated these heavy duty, all metal sewing machines and with a few technical modifications have been successful in re-engineering and upgrading them to produce strong durable seams and professional looking topstitching on heavier materials.
These beautiful vintage workhorse machines are used worldwide by skilled Leather Crafters to sew items such as Upholstery, Purses, Belts, Holsters, Knife Sheaths, Dog Collars, Moccasins, Golf Bags, Book Covers & Guitar Straps.
You can use our machines to sew Marine Vinyl, Heavy Denim & Sailcloth. Our machines are very versatile and also do a great job with fine fabrics such as Cotton, Silk, Tulle and Lace.
Speed takes a back seat to accuracy and correct feeding of the work under the presser foot. Vintage machines with a simple handle attached to the hand wheel (not a geared hand crank) is ideal. As we offer as an option, the crank handle, there is no need for electricity and it's a great take-along for camping trips, on your boat, or anywhere else you prefer to sew.
With our machines you never have to worry about electronic or electrical parts breaking down or costly repairs, in fact these machines will last for several generations to come, with just a little oil every now and then.
With our machines, you also get a solid Poplar Wood base for added stability. A new aftermarket 1.5 amp motor can be added for an additional $49.
Treat yourself or give a Fantastic Gift to someone you Love!
DISCLAIMER: Even though our machines are heavy duty and leather capable, they are not marketed as, or represented as Commercial or Industrial Machines.
