Consew 118

5 posts in this topic

Hi All,

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?

Thanks!

Thanks Red,

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?

Thanks Tejas --

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)

Questions:

It uses a 6018 bobbin -- is this a big (M) bobbin?

Servo conversion info ?
