I'm looking at a Consew 118 for sale locally in Portland.
I haven't been able to find much info on this machine.
The seller says it's a walking foot and has reverse.
I'm wondering what the biggest thread size I can use with this machine?
About how high does the foot lift?
I would plan to put a servo motor on it.
Would it be good for my purposes of sewing webbing and 1.2mm leather?

I found that thread earlier, but had to look again to see that he lists the thread sizes -- Thanks!
Anyone have any experience sewing with one of these things?
Could someone recommend a servo motor that would fit?

OK - as a general reference I'll list what I know about this machine
It has a walking foot.
It will hold needle sizes 14-25.
That should allow thread up to 207, but it is listed as a light-medium weight machine in it's description in the user manual.
I'll hope to run 138 in it.
The owner of it says it has reverse -- but I couldn't find anything in the manual about it.
Max stitch length is 4 stitches per inch. (6.35mm)
It uses a 6018 bobbin -- is this a big (M) bobbin?
Servo conversion info ?
