  1. I've been using my Juki 1541 W for gusset sewing, and though I've muscled through, I'd love to start working on a cylinder arm to make corners easier. What are people's favorite machines to look out for? I've been combing through facebook and other formums to find something used. It'll be my first one so I'd rather not pay for something brand new while I get adjusted. I generally use 3-4oz leather and mostly for bags, always veg tanned. Thanks! (or if anyone has tips on making gusset sewing easier on a juki, I'm all ears!)
  2. Hey, Check out the Weaver leather rotary sewing machine I saw a video on today. I wished I'd had this option when I bought my Tipman Boss. https://www.weaverleathersupply.com/catalog/item-detail/63500-01/master-tools-cub-manual/pr_59274/cp_/shop-now/machinery/sewing/machines Vikefan
  3. Like NEW less than 2 hours of use, REALLY! (this is why my wife hates it when I get bonus checks, I make spur of the moment purchases)! $1950.00 (COVID FREE!!) I will deliver within 50 miles of 92691 Zip Code, otherwise, we can negotiate it! I bought this when we were planning on moving, as the first piece of my new workshop, but our situation has changed and we are not moving, I can only use this when I clear room out of our den to make space for it, then need to pack it back away! It's a shame because it is awesome and works perfectly, can sew anything I can run through it, and more! For the time being, I will just hand stitch my small sites, and leave the large items to others. Cowboy industrial sewing machines (by Toledo Industrial) are built as tough as tanks and are capable of sewing thick leather, cloth, webbing, bioplastic, and other materials, with heavy thread. Capacity: The Cowboy CB3200 Leather Stitcher or Leather Sewing Machine, pictured here, is capable of sewing up to 1/2" of saddle leather, with up to #346 bonded nylon or polyester thread. Mechanism: It has a cylinder arm of 10.5 inches in length; ideal for sewing belts, collars, tack, holsters, book covers, all sorts of cases, chaps, chinks, guitar straps, and saddlebags. The feed is performed by a compound, triple feed walking foot, which ensures that all layers will move together. The presser feet, known as Harness Feet, are made of stainless steel. My unit also has the optional flat table to give the cylinder arm a flatbed application for sewing of larger or longer items. The CB3200 uses the same bobbins, feet, and needles as other Cowboy machines. The primary difference from those models is the removable U shaped table to convert the Cylinder Arm to a Flat Table Machine. The sewing stand/table size is 22" wide x 48" long and the top is 33" off floor. The sewing surface height is 37" from the floor. Included: My CB3200 purchase comes complete with a motor and table and narrow double toe harness presser feet. Also included are four bobbins and one pack of needles. Model: CB3200 Arm Length: 10.5" Arm Diameter: 3 9/16" Maximum Foot Lift: 5/8"" Max Sewn Thickness: 1/2" Thread Sizes: #69 - #346 Bobbins: 7/8" x 1" large capacity Max Speed: 800 rpm Max Stitch Length: 2 per inch Reverses into same holes High torque servo motor, with front panel speed control knob Ball bearing 3:1 speed reducer U shaped cut-out table, on casters Adjustable Pedestal stand upgrade $100.00 Removable flatbed conversion table attachment: $95 Magnetic mount, LED flex lamp My Actual Machine
  4. Please help ID this machine. Front flywheel like a Frobana ...but too much difference???? Swiss made. does anyone have a manual? The curved needle is really a hook to pull the bottom thread to the top where it engages the upper billhook and shuttle/bobbin holder. Bottom thread is held in 2 "fingers" which present the bottom thread to the needle/hook. how do I adjust the needle to catch the bottom thread ....now it just misses.

    Tippmann Boss

    Everybody knows what this is, so I'll just give you what you don't know. Bought March 2019,. Well cared for and used then til now. Comes with 10 needles, 6 bobbins, double toe and 2 centre foot presser feet and 1/4 lb of 277 thread. It's like new and works well. Reason for selling is because I've upgraded. 1400CAD which is about 1050USD. I'm in Nova Scotia, but I'll ship for free within Canada or the US.
  6. I came across this today on YouTube, and thought some might enjoy it.
  7. Good day. I need your help and advice on choosing a sewing machine for sewing leather. I have experience with sewing textiles, but as far as working with leather is concerned, I'm just a rookie. I want to start sewing car seats and upholstery. Unfortunately, I have no familiars, who would be engaged in sewing such products. I'm sure it should be a flatbed machine. But I have doubts about what kind of the feed mechanism to choose - top & bottom or compound feed. I have heard and read different opinions on this matter. What are the features of the choice? My purchase budget - around $ 1200. Brands represented in my country - Juki, Typical, Durkopp-Adler, Golden Wheel, Hightex, Zoje. One seller also advised me model Typical GC 20606-1. Do you think this will be a good choice? I don't want to be wrong, because I won't have another try. Thank you in advance.
  8. Well its time to expand into new disciplines. I have restored and rebuilt a 100+ year old one horse carriage except for the upholstery, dashboard and trunk. Just ordered a couple of 3 oz hides and now need a machine to sew with. As far as I know there are no industrial machine dealers around here in Idaho so I need a machine that would easily serviced if needed possibly by a residential machine technician (if that is even an issue). Anyway I have pretty much decided to buy new unless something pops up regionally. As to what else I plan to do with it, I never know. But I do have lots of ideas. Belts, sheaths, boat cover repairs, furniture cushions, wallets, ect. I would hold the line at holsters and heavy leather as initially the type of machine necessary would not be ideal for my current project based on discussions in this forum. From reading forums I would probably like an 18" arm Servo Motor Gear reduction Looking for brand and model recommendations. In addition what additional supplies and attachments should I be purchase for/with the machine (feet, needles, thread size)? No specific budget but I guess I will be spending 1 - 2 k.
  9. Hi guys, Ill keep this short. Does anyone know how to remove this belt shroud on this machine.? I need to change the belt but cant figure out how the shroud/guard comes off. Im referring to the top guard directly around the wheel. Thnx Does the wheel have to be removed.?
  10. Hello Everyone, First time posting here so please be understanding with terminology and what not - any help/suggestions is appreciated. I have what I believe is an early singer 16k SV - only issue is there is not a model number tag on it like most (aside from the serial number - 5603810 - 1883) - Do you agree with this or have any reason for why it could be a different model? Hopefully once this is confirmed I will be able to track down and eliminated a few of these issues: 1- When taking off the tension part from where the handwheel attached my brother broke it. I have no idea what this piece is called and have been searching high and low. It seems to have been connect by a pin to an internal spring maybe? We have not tried to remove the part stuck in the rod yet as I do not want to make a bad situation worse. I really feel even knowing the name or part number would really help. 3- I also believe that I have a jump foot and long beak shuttle - my brother and I broke the top foot and I am looking to replace this as well - any suggestions? 4- Needles, needles, needles....can anyone tell me what you would try first/what to look for? 5- Does anyone know what this little clip would be called on the slide plate? It still stays on but I would like to complete as much as possible. Again, thanks in advance and any iformation and or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
  11. I'm a hobbyist who makes reproductions of film, game, and television costumes for attending conventions and entering competitions. I have been sewing for 6 years now and have had a pretty good success rate and am comfortable sewing fabric but want to expand the range of skills I have. The next costume I have my eye on making contains a lot of leather and I know I will need the appropriate sewing machine to get it done properly and work with more leather in the future. I do have machines some sites advertise as being 'appropriate' for leather such as my singer 4423 and my all-metal Bernina 1008S but | really doubt their capabilities on thicker fabric and the number of broken needles that would involve. From what I have read I know I need to be looking at a walking foot machine with a compound feed and a servo motor, for garment sewing I want a flatbed, my issue comes from my student's budget of around £600 (I am from the UK) which I know is not a lot and I am looking at 2nd hand machines. As I am making garments my leather shouldn't be too thick, I have attached an image of the first project I wish to embark on as an example, however, I do need to occasionally work on things such as holsters and belts so I guess a machine with an ability to sew a wider range of fabric would be better. Although I know each machine has a range that it is suitable for so may not be able to do everything I want, I am fine hand-stitching small pieces like bags, belts and holsters if the machine I got couldn't handle it (as I am on my current project: Dolores from Westworld). I have a friend who used to work at a leather store and now runs her own small leather goods business, and the grandmother of my boyfriend who worked making leather goods all her life as people to turn to for advice on choosing leather for my projects as I don't have much insight myself as I'm still learning, I'm sorry I can't offer more information. These are some machines I have spotted on a quick ebay search that I may be able to afford, but I can't really risk buying something that I won't be able to use as I am a student and I'm not going to be able to get more money any time soon, especially with no competitions running currently with the pandemic as I use my prize money to finance my hobby. Some have more details listed in descriptions than others: Juki DNU 1181 £650 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Juki-DNU-1181-Walking-Foot-Industrial-Sewing-Machine/174268045735?hash=item28932f59a7:g:FBMAAOSwvA9eovz9 Highlead GC-0318 £620 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HIGHLEAD-WALKING-FOOT-LEATHER-SEWING-MACHINE-SILENT-SERVOMOTOR-SPEED-CONTROL/263542363354?

Thank you for any help you give me! I have also read the pinned 'The Type Of Sewing Machine You Need To Sew Leather' and a couple of other relevant posts

  16. Hello, I'm new to leatherworking. So far I've sewed a few things, some bags, wallets and a coat. I've been sewing for longer then I've been sewing leather. My little Singer 15k (I think) can't quiet keep up with what I want to do. After reading a lot on the forums I started to keep an eye out for an actual leather sewing machine and not a high powered industrial machine as most are described. Today I came across two machines for sale from the same owner and both look like what I could use. The problem is I don't know which is better suited to me or which is the better deal. The machines for sale are a Consew 227 and a Singer 132k6. Here's a link with the ad and some pictures. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1485262987 Both are $400 CAD so about $300 USD. And I believe neither has reverse. The Consew 227 comes with a table and a gear reducer clutch motor. The Singer 132k6 also comes with a table and a clutch motor. (Will change to Servo for $50 extra) Any input would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Hello Everyone, I'm looking to buy a used JUKI LS-341-N and wondering if anyone can point out it's advantages or disadvantages. Also, what improvements were made in the new (and improved?) JUKI LS 1341-N model? Thanks for any thoughts you might have, Janet
  18. Hi all, I'm in the market for a free arm cylinder for sewing my leather bags. I definitely want a walking foot, and came across the SEW LINE 2603 (or 2605) CYLINDER WALKING FT with REVERSE on ebay for $1300. Ive never heard of the brand, and of course it's less expensive than the juki's and consews, which is ideal for my "starter machine" budget is under $1500. It would be my first free arm- right now I have a Singer 211G. I want to make sure its a decent investment for the price.... thoughts!? Thanks everyone!
  19. I have a Cobra class 4 sewing machine, was hoping it was going to do everything I was going to make. Few years later I'm starting to need a machine for wallets and watch bands. I use leathers between 2 to 5 oz either split or skived down. Was thinking about a Juki 1508, huge cost but a solid machine, of course, the salesman is pushing the most expensive. Looking for suggestions; good machine lower price. I know, I know the subject has been most likely been covered a thousand times but I cruised the topics and didn't see a topic that seemed to fit. Not sure what I'm going to end up with, but I need something...
  20. I came across this article today, and thought it might be of some interest here, particularly for those old iron fans. It covers how the first sewing machines came about, how Singer came to dominate the market, and some of the social changes they brought about. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-50673541 Enjoy! - Bill
  21. I see many requests for manuals for Singer Industrial Machines. Some have gone unanswered, and some are subject to long and tedious discussion with either no satisfactory answer, or an answer hidden deeply away. Of course, there are also plenty which have been answered quickly and succinctly. By doing some research and seeking out some of those hidden answers and others less hidden, I think I have found all of those that have been asked for, as well as many others. I am not an expert, and don't claim that this is an extensive list, but it is a pretty good start for those trying to find the manuals, parts lists and service manuals. The list I have attached starts with a few of the sources which are very helpful. All of the manuals listed are free, and I suspect the list owners would appreciate it if you can send them any manuals that they are missing. So before you pay for a manual, check these lists first. I hope this is a quick answer for many of your questions about manuals. I would really appreciate any additions to this list - please add links in your responses. Singer Industrial Manuals –.pdf
  22. I have taught myself leathercraft and have been making some accessories as a hobby for a few years now. I feel like I am very passionate about designing and making handbags and small leather goods, and I would like to expand it to a full-time business one day. In order to increase my production rate, I am contemplating purchasing a leather sewing machine, however I am having no luck finding good models for my use in Hong Kong, where I am based. I don't think I will work with very heavy leather, just light to medium weight leather for garments and bags. I saw some of the recommendations here for brands such as TechSew, Cobra, Cowboy, Consew, etc but shipping it to Hong Kong from the US will cost a lot of S&H and the plugs/voltage are not the same. I saw quite a few people based in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia and wondered if anyone has any recommended dealers for leather sewing machines. Thank you for your help in advance!
  23. This machine (Consew 2050) has been in my home for 7 months and I have used it all of 5 hours, might be less. I purchased this machine brand new, had it delivered to my smoke free home and purchased different gadgets to make sewing easy. I have changed my focus in leather, therefore this machine is to powerful. A great machine for someone working with heavy leather. Based on the pictures...you will get a right and left zipper foot, sewing roller guide, a regular sewing guide, feeding dog plate with no ridges, oil and thread spools. All original parts will come with the machine as well. Everything listed in the pictures is your. Please feel free to ask questions...

  24. Hello, I’m having such an annoying problem with my “JACK JK-513A” servo engine. The engine is connected to my “JUKI DDL-8700”. So here’s the issue: The engine won’t go any faster than 02 in speed... Even though the speed is set to 20-30. Everything worked fine just the other day. Today when I started to sew, I received an "E5 error" — after I solved the error, it seems like the machine won't sew any faster than 02. Please check the following demonstration video by clicking the link: Demonstration video Does anyone have an idea, of what I can do? (Btw. thanks for letting me join the community)
  25. Hey All, New to the forum, but not quite new to leather working. Wanted to pick the brains of experts around here and get some suggestions as to the best machine and attachment for our needs. We're looking to produce our current leather bag line in-house along with a few additional styles in the coming months, but don't have the correct machine to sew leather edge binding on our bags....or even the bags for that matter. I've been sewing our smaller items with a Brother LS2-B837 walking foot honed in exactly where I like it, but it does not suit the purpose of sewing duffel bags due to the flat bed design. I've prototyped a few duffels in the past on this machine, but it's definitely not ideal for production use! I really have 2 questions. One is about machine selection and the second is about sewing leather binding. Question 1. What machine recommendation do y'all have for sewing our style bags. We use #138 polyester thread on 5-5.5oz veg tan, edge skived, 2 layers minimum, more where pull tabs, handles, etc attach. We're not sewing through anything crazy like 1" of thickness, but we do have a few spots like handle sewing where its close to 20oz of leather. Picture of duffel bag attached for reference..... Question 2. When sewing a leather edge binding, do most manufacturers prefer to glue then sew or use a binding attachment to feed it through? Also, is the binding sewn on the same time as the seam, or is the bag sewn, then the binding attached after? We're low volume at the moment (15-20 bag runs) so not vitally important we're the most efficient at this time, but still need to be able to grow into our machine. Thanks all for the help in advance and excited to see what else I can learn in the meantime! Regards, Joe www.blvd-east.com
