Along with a Babylock, Viking, Phaff, and vintage Singer 15-91, I have a Singer Industrial 95-10 bought 25 years ago in NYC . I used it mainly for sewing lamb suede dresses and light weight leather clothing.
I have moved around with this machine and kept it well oiled and had only minor problems, mostly with tension that I fixed by replacing the tension disks and spring.
I've wanted to redo outdoor cushions and would rather use this Singer to make the project less tedious.
I'm not afraid of the speed and can manage to slow down by adjusting my foot pressure, but might like a quieter ride on this machine. I This machine runs smooth and doesn't make those clanky metal sounds that some of the newer industrial machines make. And... I can't afford to buy a new one at this time. I'd like to know if anyone has switched from clutch to servo motor on this particular machine and your take on this....

If the machine has a v belt, and not a round leather belt, it's a fairly easy switch. Disconnect the treadle actuating rod from the motor, undo the belt, undo the three bolts holding the motor to the table (It's heavy, I recommend having help), attach the new motor, measure for and fit a new belt, reinstall acuating rod. Depending on the motor you have, and the motor you're replacing it with, you may have to change wiring (many servos plug straight in, and have their own on/off swich, and have a 120V outlet for a lamp, not the 6V outlet that most clutch motors use for a poor excuse for a light.)

If you have a mechanic for the machine, it's something they've done before, almost certainly.
