    Should be here in two weeks

    Here is a demo video of a machine I ordered:

    wow they needed to turn on auto focus. I wanted to see the stitching better. Other than that I think it's a good looking machine. Hope it is better than what you are needing.

    This is exactly a machine I need. The stitch quality on this Chinese-made clone of Juki 441 is as good as German's Adler or Pfaff or Japanese Juki machines, but it is less than half-price than either one.

    Leather is a new territory for me - learning curve and the new market, so the less financial exposure, the better. All in all, I am very excited. There are limitations what one can do without proper tools.

    Sayas and rolls are coming!

    I'm super jealous, I do mine by hand. Sometimes it keeps me from making them, on my day off my hands aren't exactly willing all of the time, they get enough work. This looks like a good machine, is it making a saddle stitch? I can't tell, I have never even used a sewing machine of any kind.

    How come it would only be wood and leather exclusive? Is it just how your production system is set up?

    I actually changed my mind and put the second grinder in the basement. Initially I thought of hooking up one grinder to dust extraction system and make it wood/leather exclusive, but then thought of it as too impractical, as the grinder would see little use.

    The sewing machine arrived.

    I still need to do some work in the room (the heat is just being brought in, and I haven't plastered and painted it yet), but hope the down time is going to be short and leather goods will be coming soon.

    Thanks,

    Marko
