I've been pondering a sewing machine upgrade. The plastic Brother I have just can't cut it through thick stuff.

Finally I said screw it and found this old singer nearby (107w1).

It went through 16 layers of 500d Cordura last night, so I think she will work well.

Ordered a servo motor for it so it doesn't eat my hand too.

Awesome, great find!

Those older machines are like gold around here. I looked for one for about six months, i could NOT find one.....and finally gave up and bought my Juki.

I just married a girl that loves to sew. She loves to quilt.
