Hello Guys,

I need to stitch special long tubular fabric with lap seam for length of 50 meters

As I understand I can do it with feed off the arm machine but my requirement is that I must put 10 lines of stitching (Chain stitch) with 1/4 distance for full length of 50 meters

Is there any machine available having 10 needle Chain Stitch Feed Off the arm having 1/4 space ?

Help needed

I'm sure there is, but you are looking at an extremely specialized single use industrial application - likely well beyond the scope of much of the expertise you will find on this forum.

I doubt it. Look at this one, and even just think about and pretend it had 10 needles instead of only 3, and think about how long the right angle free arm would really need to be on it, if you were really trying to jam 50 meters or 164 feet of scrunched and bunched up fabric in there, in between your needle and the right angle of that free arm?




Maybe consider changing your sewing process instead, and making something into a tube afterwards?

When they were making military cargo parachutes where I work, we had about 10 or 12 old Singer machines that were 4 needle chainstitch with 1/4 inch spacing. Never heard of a 10 needle machine of any kind, but there might be such a thing. The old Singers we had were not feed off the arm types, they were a standard configuration with the fabric feeding front to rear across the bed to the left of the pillar. I posted several pictures of these, but they are on my work computer and I'm home and on vacation right now. If I can remember, I'll post some pics when I get back to work next week.

There were (and probably still are) chain stitch machines that had as many as 32 needles in 6". There are lockstitch machines with many needles, but the spacing is much wider. (loopers are more compact than a bobbin and hook!).

Don't know if there are off the arm machines like this, but if you're willing to spend the money, there could be.

Is this to be used for elastic shirring?
