To all the members, I just saw a video on the new Consew 2206-14-7 sewing machine . It looks like a new machine based off the Consew 206. This one has direct drive with functions, 8mm max stitch length and get this, 14" of work space. I have seen them for sale from $1799.00 to $1995.00. Looks like a winner. Anybody have one or sewn on one??? glenn
Okay so.... I am getting a new machine with almost full cart blanche allowed. Here's the setup. I have a Janome Horizon 8900 from my sewing days which does everything fabric related and light garment weight leather. I also have a 20 year old Chandler DY-337 which can sail through canvas and light leather, BUT its presser feet leave horrible marks on the leather if its something like veg tanned so only the softer ones will work there (if you know of a model that interchanges where I can find smooth presser feet I'd love to know). Also, if you've ever used one, there isn't much presser clearance and its not a compound fed machine. So here's where my work is and where it is going. I currently love doing leather bags, everything from 2/3 up to heavy buffalo, and smaller leather goods. The issue is I don't have the maneuverability I need for bags with the flat bed, so a compound feed cylinder arm is in my sights and I am moving towards veg tanned pieces such as inlaid leather belts, spur straps, chaps, building custom orders which could include heavier layers such as skirts for welders and such where a cylinder arm will come in handy. I want the freedom of torque to attempt all manner of projects from saddle bags to tack, but I want a reserve, so to speak, so I'm not running into the upper limits of the machine. There aren't any saddles in my future so there is a limit. Something that could handle smaller projects like wallets (because I'm not a fan of the Chandler mainly because of the feet), but also have the thread capability to run through belts, and 2-3 layers of veg tan. If there's not a machine with that range I understand. I've seen all manner of suggestions between Techsew 2700, Juki, Cobra and Cowboy models. There seems to be a dilemma between clones and other models and everyone has there favorites, but is there actual issues with some brands over others? I don't have much of an option to find a good used machine. There aren't many crafters up where I'm at (NW Montana) who have spares laying around, nor am I going to risk buying something online. I have the ability to buy new so I'm asking you all, where would you stick your money if you were me? I need dependable, smooth, quiet and easy maintenance. I'm handy at fixing when things need it, but I don't want a fixer every time I set up a project. Thank you all for your due diligence in these forums. You spend so much time helping us out and its most appreciated.
I purchased a cobra class 3 leather stitcher about 4 months ago. I do leather work by hand and wanted a stitcher to speed up the process. I can't figure out how to use the thing so it's just been sitting in my studio. Unused and untouched. It's essentially brand new. Still has warranty from manufacturer. I have receipts of purchase for you. Costs new $2195 plus $200 for shipping. I'm offering at $2000 which saves you $400. This is for pickup only. It's VERY heavy. If you really want it shipped contact me to see if we can work something out. I will NOT ship out of USA. If interested call me at 847-722-4682 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
