    Where to buy this L Shaped Table Top?

    Here is a link to a German company that makes industrial sewing machine tops and stands. https://www.kessler-ergo.com/us-en/table_tops/

    Singer 307g2 zigzag limited

    Could the problem be that the machine had been unused for a long time and is gummed-up? I bought a used Bernina 217 zig zag sewing machine in excellent condition but that apparently had been stored for a long time. Zig zag worked erratically. A sewing machine repairman soaked the machine in a solvent -- kerosine maybe -- and the sewing machine worked perfectly. A few other folks on the forum seem to have had similar problems Try the following in google to see those threads. gummed up zig zag sewing machine site leatherworker.net

    Just got a Sailrite Fabricator

    Wizcrafts seems to be correct. According to the following Sailrite chart, the Fabricator is a compound walking foot machine. https://www.sailrite.com/PDF/Straight-Stitch-Sewing-Machine-Comparison-Chart.pdf

    111w152 through 154 identification

    I also did mostly vinyl and marine canvas for my sailboat. As for the type of machine for that application, I strongly favor a compound walking-foot machine vs a walking-foot machine -- the addition of needle-feed to walking-foot makes a huge difference. My first machine was a 111W155 that could do almost everything I can do with my current Juki 1508.

    The 111w class brochure link in the following thread might help. https://leatherworker.net/forum/topic/88340-singer-111w155-or-singer-111w154/

    Suggestion for a new sub-forum

    Frequently I think that that in general the searches provided by web sites are not very good. Accordingly, I almost never use them. Instead I use google and the "site" keyword, as in: [search subject, which might include quotes for phrases or other arcane google search syntax] site leatherworker.com
  10. Contraire -- what what works for some folks might not work for other folks. The OP seems to offer a repeatable solution for varying situations.that might appeal to some users.

    Tammy, here is a link to very good pdf copy of the 563 user manual just in case you don't already have a copy or the machine doesn't come with the manual. http://keysew.com/Webpages/DemoImages/Juki_LU-563_Instruction_Keyfooter.pdf

    Sewing Through Plywood

    Gymnast, if I understand correctly, at the end of your video you mention a youtube video you made about your machine. Would you please post a link to that video.
