Cowboy CB227R Walking foot leather sewing machine

CB227R Medium Weight Sewing Machine Cylinder Arm, Walking Foot 

For Saddle Bags, Concealed Gun Holsters, Small Harnesses

CB227R  "Perfect for leather handbags & wallets!"

Cowboy industrial sewing machines are built to exacting standards and are capable of sewing real leather, as well as cloth, webbing, bioplastic and other materials.

The Cowboy CB227R sewing machine is capable of sewing up to 3/8" of leather, webbing, or denim, with up to #207 bonded nylon or polyester thread.

The machine has a 10 1/2 inch long cylinder arm (a.k.a: free arm) and uses the same multitudinous and inexpensive needles and presser feet as the Singer 111w155, Consew 227R and most other walking foot machines. The throat cover plate is cut off close to the left end of the arm, allowing you to sew gussets and other projects that have narrow flanges (with narrow feet). You can let shaped items hang down and sew along the back, very close to the edge.

The CB227R features a forward/reverse stitch length lever, which you pull down to back tack to lock your stitches. The positive compound feed is performed by a combination of a bottom feed dog, timed with a moving needle and moving inside presser foot. It has alternating presser feet, with the outside foot used to secure the work between stitches. This ensures that all layers move together and remain in alignment. It also guarantees consistent stitch length, due to the needle, inner foot and feed dog all pulling the material at the same ratio.

The Cowboy CB227R is an ideal machine for sewing the edges of belts, straps, pancake holsters, shaped and round cases, purses, hats and caps, backpacks and heavy garments (like jeans). This is also a perfect machine for sewing around arm holes, hems and cuffs on both cloth and leather garments, as the circular work can freely revolve around the cylinder arm.

Other uses for this machine include saddle bags, motorcycle seats, small animal harnesses, leashes and collars, concealed gun holsters, nylon webbing tow ropes, rifle slings, and even for installing zippers.
