  1. Issues with Juki LU-563

    I am in the market for a sewing machine to increase my production of some items. I've found a Juki Industrial LU-563 in my area for what looks like a good price. I mainly make wallets, watch straps and belts. Can anyone speak to the max thickness this model can sew through? Right now I am hand sewing through at a max of 8 to 10oz veg tan leather. Would this model have an easy time working with garment leather and chrome tan leather? I would like to make totes using chrome tan leather at a thickness of 4oz doubled at the seams. Thank you
