New Machine – Singer 153 K103 Cylinder Arm Walking Foot Machine

Pretty exciting – We acquired a new machine to add to our stable.
A Singer 153K103 Cylinder Arm, Walking Foot, Industrial Machine

There are just some jobs that you can’t do without a machine like this.
It will enable us to sew the inside of a heavy bag, that would be near impossible to manipulate on a flat bed machine.

Tom is currently in the middle of building a special table for it , and fitting it with a 3/4 HP servo motor.

I’ll have some more photos when it’s up and running .
Stay Tuned.

Winter Sewing Shop Upgrades

Over our winter break this year, we did a small construction project – building a storage loft over 1/2 the shop.

It turned out really great & I can now store all my jobs in progress & extra materials, someplace other than my work table top 🙂

Also we changed all the fluorescent lights over to ballast bypass LED’s. I really recommend this to anyone that uses standard 4 foot shop lights. Pretty easy to re-wire them, and the LED strips work in any T-8 or T-12 fixture. And for a $ 80 box of bulbs, it re-lit our entire shop.
