What is the limitation of Tippmann Boss hand crank leather sewing machine?
1. This leather stitch using small Barrel shuttle hook (same to Adler 105 or Singer 45K), not perfect for heavier sewing thread;
2. The casting material is aluminum, and mostly zinc extruded parts inside the machine, so the quality of the machine suffered a lot;
