    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

    An incredible score on Ebay

    Very good (given the age) condition. Now quick refurb and to work. I needed this machine to split leather for saya strap to keep a knife in.
