  1. weldwood here too, goes on smooth and no lumps. and the edges stay solidly stuck...........
  2. Looks like the real thing, from back in the day, to me! thanks for posting.
  3. My attempt at a holster for hip or chest use. Carries nice both ways.
  4. Hi ruffwerkz , Thanks for the info. How do you separate the base from the head? It would make it a little lighter, I think to pack in the old suv and drive 2300 miles and take out and setup again. Could this work? or just to much monkey business to do. i'm also looking to get a binder attachment, please update this thread when you do get one. george
  5. Thanks Wizcrafts, I wasn't knocking Sailrite ha , I was impressed that it was portable and that I could sew sunbrella / canvas with 92, light strapping wit 138, and heaver material or strapping / leather with 207 . It looks like it would do everything I now do by hand but, a lot faster and more accurately . I like the fact that it could be 110v (at home) or 12v when I'm in the desert areas during the winter months. george
  6. I think this machine is just about perfect, for the person on the go. Is there anyone that has one? Maybe someone has more info.

    I travel to Wi for 1/2 of the year and to Az for the other 1/2. I like the 227r and think it will do everything I want to do. I'm just wondering if these type of machine's travel well? I drive an suv that has the room , if I break the unit down. Thank for your time in this matter, george
