This is my second industrial machine. When you get into this, you cannot go back to use 'home' machines, unless you are after fancy stuff like embroidery stitches, or need to make buttonholes! This machine has a cylinder arm and a narrow needle plate that allows to work on tight angles and round or cylindrical items, like bags, hats and sleeves. It also has a fantastic walking foot and moving needle plate that works wonders with leather and canvas.
The main pressure foot (there is also a small one for the needle) can have 1 or 2 "toes", depending on the work you need to do. For edge seams we use a foot with 1 left toe since there is not going to be much material to the right of the needle.
For some work that I do I can double my productivity, compared to using a regular single needle machine. It is industrial, so it can take abuse, and with the huge 1/2HP motor it can go through very thick materials, as long as you use the correct needle gauge. These machines are very expensive new, but a used one in good condition can be had for a reasonable price if you are patient and look around. This one must be from the late 60's and looks like it's never been used much. Built to last, all metal. I replaced the original clutch motor with a modern, silent and energy efficient servo motor that also has adjustable maximum speed. A very good buy. Check for videos on YouTube on using this machine.
