    I decided to take a chance with this little item from The C.H. Ina Company. The stand was garbage and I had some scrap wood around so I made a stand for it.

    After a good cleaning with some brake cleaner to get all of the cosmoline off of it, it's not a bad little machine. I have made some mods, but not many.

    Not bad for $100 bucks. I can make stitches with it with two fingers thru the leather. I think it's going to be a fun little adventure.

    OH! It's nothing new the design has been around in a basic form for some time now.

    When I was 17 I got a job with a guy that installed sunroofs in cars, he also fitted vinyls to car roofs.

    There were only two of us and we used a sewing machine like yours to sew the three pieces of vinyl together so the car had two neat seams along the roof.

    That is one scary looking contraption. I felt phantom pain in my fingernail similar to what I experienced when I first tried to use my grandmother’s peddle Singer sewing machine.

    When I first looked at the pics, I thought it was a scroll saw. Similar design and operation I suppose.

    Love to see some photos of the leather goods you produce with it.

    I have watched some youtube videos on those little machines with some reviews and mod tips. Seems like a useful machine especially for the price. Keep us up to date Roy!

    I'd give it all up, for just a little more.

    The Encre Noire is what I like. I have had mine for a few years now.
    I also have been trying some of the Tobacco scents. I like them.
