Can My Old Japanese Machine Sew Leather?
Sorry if this is redundant. My computer is cramping up and it was hell navigating old topics/posts.
I'm currently learning how to do auto upholstery.
I don't have the money for an industrial machine yet, but if my old Ward's Signature can get thru just a few bucket seats I can earn enough to get an old industrial Juki or something.
She's a Montgomery Ward's Signature URR 988 circa-1958
Do you think I can count on the old girl?
I use it often and always treat her right. It's a beautiful machine and runs like a Rolls Royce. It's strong, quiet and smooth as silk. I bet I could make a pillow case with a glass of wine sitting on the top. Seriously.
Otherwise, do any of you know of an old 60's-70's Japanese built models that were really tough, so I can look for one on Ebay/Craigslist?
Thank you for your time.
