needle, portable, walking foot, straight stitch machine. $350. Shipping
weight 43 lbs.
This is a single
needle, lock stitch machine with a high lift
independent upper and lower feed mechanism. Intended for straight stitching heavy and extra heavy materials, this machine is good for canvas
, upholstery materials, and lightweight leather (up to 3/8" thick).
The walking foot mechanism is composed of upper and lower feed dogs
which are synchronized to feed the material either forward or in reverse. Both lifting and feeding feet alternatively press the material tightly together permitting even stitiching.
This machine is similar to Sailrite's LS-1 machine. It does not have a zig-zag stitch capability.
We purchased this machine new (from Sailrite) , and used it for enclosure curtains and a sail cover
for our boat
, as well as for some sail repairs
. It has been stored carefully in a dry closet. Sailrite
services these machines.
The entire machine is metal (except for belts and that sort of thing), the case is plastic. Also included are 3 ½ packs of needles and a couple of extra bobbins and the original manual.
weight is 37 lbs.
