Thinking about a used sewing machine to tinker with some canvas/upholstery work in my garage. What kind of machine should I look for?
Slippery when wet. "POD" Free Tunnel through Common Sense Engineering
I bought a Consew 18 and it works great, like it a lot. I did pretty much the same thing in that video with four layers of heavy vinyl and canvas etc. I did not, how ever, take the seat belts out of my truck so i cant verify that part of it
That Pfaff is a nice machine.

A few years ago I picked up an old Singer at a yard sale. Weighs about 50 pounds, all steel everything. It will also throw heavy goretex thread through 2-3 layers of webbing. Just make sure it is old and heavy and you are in good shape

My mother bought a new Singer two years ago to new canvas on there motoryacht
Had one problem called the company and problem was fixed.machine worked great!!

I don't remember the model number but all the sail lofts use Singers. They will punch through mylar and kevlar then they will go through just about anything. You do have to keep up with the timing on them.
Put your best foot forward!
