  1. I have an amazing Juki LU-563 walking foot sewing machine for sale. Heavy and solid cast body, made in Japan. The entire machine was overhauled by Sloan Machinery in New Hampshire about 3 years ago. They replaced the internal parts that had any signs of minor wear, installed a Sew Green Servo Motor, and changed the drive belt. They also mounted it on a good sized, very sturdy table. Mounted beside the machine is an automatic bobbin winder that runs while you sew (it’ll fill a full bobbin before you’ve used half of the one in the machine). You can also wind bobbins when you’re not sewing. The machine has been meticulously maintained and is in excellent condition. It’s always been used and stored in the climate controlled portion of the house. Every time I use it I oil all oil points with the included sewing machine oil (all oil points are marked so you’ll never forget). The Juki LU-563 is a workhorse of a machine. I used it to make leather bags and accessories, sewing up to 3 layers of 4oz leather with ease. I bought it for $1500 and am including a bit over $100 worth of thread, needles and spare bobbins. They run for about $1500 on eBay in similar condition so I’m asking for $1300 cash. I won’t ship, but I’ll gladly meet you around the Hartford, CT area. Please let me know if you have questions or would like more pictures - I can send as many as you'd like!

  2. Hi, Is this still available?
  3. Hi, up to this point I've been handstitching my leather goods (mainly wallets) by hand thinking my target customers cared about that craftmanship. What I've realized is they don't - they care about the look of the leather and the design of the wallet, so I'm now in the market for a machine stitcher. I'll start making wallets and simple leather bags, ranging from 2 layers of 5-6oz leather (rarely vegtan, normally softer chrome tanned or combination tanned Horween leathers) up to 4 layers of 4 oz...so from 10oz up to 16oz of total leather. I have a few designs that will be 2 layers of 5 oz tolling and bridle leathers, so those will also be stiffer. I want to make sure this machine could accomodate some of my future ideas, which include duffle bags, backpacks, and camera bags. From my reserach, I need a walking foot leather stitcher with triple feed. My preference for appearance sake is size 346 thread, so I'll need a machine to accomodate that. I have a specific budget that I think is fair based on looking at more recent(ish) listings that sold off here, so as long as you have a well running machine around that budget I'd be glad to chat. Please let me know if you have anything that'd fit the bill or if you have any suggestions where I could/shoudl look. Thanks! Jeremy
  4. Thanks! I'll have to check that out. Only issue is that I need a black variation...kind of like an urban camo...as well. Appreciate the help!
  5. Hello all. I'm relatively new to this forum, but so far have found it incredibly helpful. I'm currently on the market for camo leather in woodland (green/brown) and black/white color ways that I can use for making watch straps. I only have experience using vegtan and Horween Chromexcel, and don't know where to go for camo printed leather in the thick enough (5/6oz) for watch straps. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
