    Sole stitcher that’ll do double row stitching!

    I suggest you check with Robin Industries. They make machines for the shoe industry. I have dealt with them in the past and was very happy with their customer service.
  2. Would really like one of these, if they are available. Wondering if it’s something Rolls Royce had special made?
  3. + 1 TAC has done all my binders and they are terrific. Contact them and they can get you setup with exactly what you need.
  4. No. If you go back and look at my post you will see it was not you I quoted.

    Great stuff Ferg! Thanks much for posting it here.
  8. I have both Seiko and Pfaff machines in my shop. There’s no question in my mind which one I’d keep.....the Pfaff. I’ll take a Pfaff over any other make whenever possible. Just my 2 cents.

    Definitely not a Pfaff. As stated above a copy of a Seiko.

    what is it? is it worth it?

    That’s less than I paid to get mine that came straight from Hong Kong. They are usually very rough and require quite a bit of time cleaning, de-burring and polishing. That said, after mine was given a make over that took longer than I expected, I had a machine that did a surprisingly good job of sewing. It handled a rather wide array of materials using several weights of thread consistently. I ran 69 all the way up to 207 and it worked great. I picked up a stand for about $30 at Harbor Frieght and was just right to mount it on. If you don’t plan on doing a lot of sewing this machine can fill the need quite well...if your willing to take the time to “personalize” it.
