Binder from Tennessee Attachment Consew 225

Recommended Posts

Found this Consew 225 on  Craigs List for a good price it is in very good shape.. I wanted a lighter machine so I could use it with a binder. I bought a number of binders off of eBay that didn't work. Contacted Tennessee Attachment and purchased this binder it works like a dream I use cotton twill for the binding. This saves me time on my light weight bags not having to double hem all the edges. I use the CB4500 to sew all the leather onto the canvas.

nice bag and nice Consew!  I'll be purchasing a binding attachment soon for canvas as well.  Did you have them custom make that attachment or is it a stock item?  I make my own binding from very thin canvas rather than twill tape, which means it needs to be double folded, so I may need to go the custom route, but I've been looking into that company. 

 

You're binding looks like it sews up really nicely.  When the inside of a canvas bag looks as nice as the outside, that's how you know its well made!

This is a stock item it depends on how thick the material is that you are going to sew. The thickest material you can put through this binder is 1/4".
