What this machine is NOT:
It will sew garment weight leather but it is not an industrial leather sewing machine. There is no such thing as an "industrial strength" or "semi industrial" domestic machine. Machines of this era were overbuilt and meant to last. That does not make them "industrial" by today's standards. Industrial machines have larger motors, bigger parts and are meant to run for hours on end.
This is a well made sewing machine. It has been fully restored and functions as new.

My guarantee: I can replace parts as long as parts are available. If you need service and a part can be found, return the machine to me. I will service the machine and send it back to you. I will not charge for labor for any replacement parts. You will be responsible for the cost of shipping and insurance both ways and for the price of any required parts. Insurance is required on all shipments.
