It was designed for sewing denim, canvass, tents, upholstery but will sew up to 1/4 inch thick leather as well. We threaded it up and it sewed great as seen in my photo. This machine is fully operational and in excellent clean condition. All functions are working smoothly.Bobbin winder, stitch length lever, tensioner all in great working order. This is an excellent clean industrial sewing machine, comes with the bobbin case and one bobbin.
Bobbins are freely available online as are the 88x1 needles it uses. We are dedicated to customer service.
