Here are a few pics of an Adler 105 - not sure of the exact model. It is a compound feed walking foot with a shuttle….
I am looking for a machine capable of low volume, precision stitching on heavy boots, leather bags, belts and harness leather - most work will fall in the range of 3.5 - 10mm.
I have heard varying reports from those in the industry and on some forums about how thick these machines can sew and would appreciate any testimony from anyone that can identify the model from these images, that has used this model or similar model machines or who would know what its basic capabilities are. Also an approximate year of manufacture.
I am aware the machine needs a couple of parts related to the tension assembly though is otherwise in basically sound condition.
I work on a range of machines aged from late 1800's to the mid 1950's so am not afraid of the older models…..
Your experiences will be valuable for me to determine if this machine may be suitable.
Thanks and regards, JBY
