After being with me since day one of my bag making career I have to let my old faithful go to a new home. I just don't have the space for it since buying 2 new machines.
It's a great machine for anyone interested in sewing heavy duty materials. It's a walking foot, twin needle machine. But what makes it special is that it has a split needlebar, which means with the flick of a lever it can run either just left, just right, or both needles, meaning it does the job of both a single and a twin needle machine.
It uses large capacity bobbins with vertical hooks, so it's quick and easy to load bobbins.
I swapped it to an adjustable speed servo motor years ago, which is really quiet, and uses way less electricity because it doesn't idle.
It would be a great machine for any bag makers out there!
Being an old machine it's obviously covered in battle scars, but functionally it still works great. I just made 2 bags on it a few weeks ago.
The table top has been cut down as I always build tables around my machines.
I'll post pictures tonight, but basically it's ready to use.
Collection only from Hackney due to size and weight.
Looking for £650.... Which is a bargain for a split needlebar!
What machines you using now?
I have a Juki LU-1509NH, a Juki LK-1900, and a Seiko post bed.
Surely there's a budding bagmaker or two on here? :)
