Hi All, I am ordering my first industrial compound feed cylinder arm machine, the SEIKO LSC-8B-2! While I have done my fair share of research of this machine, It would be great to hear of ANY advice dedicated to this model to assist me or anyone else interested in this machine in the future. Now, I was in a dilemma on which model to get; the 8B-2 (standard sewing) or 8BV-2 (sychronised binder). I asked SEIKO Japan via email if 8BV-2 can do standard sewing and sync binding, and the response I got was: "In LSC-8BV-2 case, sewing may be difficult by material" ...I suppose LSC 8BV-2 is intended for sync binding only/primarily. However, my local sales advisor said LSC 8BV-2 can do standard sewing and sync binding (I was wary of this answer, perhaps the advisor just wanted me to buy the higher priced model...). I wanted a machine that can do both 'modes' professionally. I want to get the most from a single machine and buying two machines is not viable at the moment; money and space does not allow! ...So I did my own youtube research of both models... There are a few youtube sewing demos of SEIKO LSC 8B-2. As well as LSC 8BV-2, that demonstrates standard sewing (no sync binding operation in sight) and it looks perfect; stitch quality and material feeding are agreeable! At this point, I was conflicted with what I have been told and what I have seen. However, I made my final decision based on SEIKO Japan agent's advice and got the LSC 8B-2. I also read another thread from this website in regards to the difference between sync binding and standard models which also informed my decision. Has anyone else been in this position? Or can a specialist provide any advice? Machine aside, can anyone provide advice for: Swing away binder Where can I buy it online? Any advice with installing? Flatbed attachment Where can I buy it online? I asked my local sales advisor about this attachment and was quoted $1,300 AUD for it... Ridiculous! Suspending edge guide Where can I buy it online? I asked my local sales advisor about this attachment and was quoted $430 AUD for it. There must be a less expensive option... I have searched ebay already for these items with mixed results. Hence my reaching out to any LSC 8B-2 specialists here to provide a direct lead to compatible and fair-priced pieces. Hopefully this thread can demystify this machine. I look forward to any responses. Kind regards Rod
Hello all! I'm having a little trouble making a decision... I'm buying my first walking foot machine and I'm not sure whether I should go with what I'm used to which is a flatbed machine like the Juki 1541s or if I should get the Techsew 2700 Pro which seems to have more capabilities? I mostly make garments but I would like to expand into accessories like purses. So it would seem like the cylinder bed would be great for that and with the table attachment it comes with it seems like a two for one. However, I've never used a cylinder machine and the height seems awkward. Can anybody attest or disagree with this? With the flatbed attachment does the fabric feed as easily as it would through a regular flatbed machine? I was dead set on getting the techsew today since they are having a sale for the holiday but now I'm feeling a little confused and a little nervous about buying something online that I wasn't able to try out... especially with that price tag. I've tried the Juki 1541S and it seems great but I don't want to outgrow it if I decide to make more accessories. Oh, and I'll mostly be working with garment weight leathers like lambskin and plonge... but a heavier cowhide to make purses with. Any comments, thoughts, or answers to my questions will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance
I just ran across new Consew machine p1206RB it seams to have the same capability as 206RB-5 with the same type of feet but for $950 vs. $1250 for 206RB-5 with the table and servo motor, I like that it has built in bobbin winder. Anybody tried them? Are they OK to work with leather? I found in my area they are sold by Vasey upholstery: http://vupholstery.com/wa/p1206rb.asp , anybody have experience with this guys? Is there anybody else selling these machines in Seattle area? Thanks.
