    I’d appreciate recommendations for a good leather sewing machine. I know it’s easy to drop a grand or more, but my price range tops out at $500. Any personal experiences would be welcome.

    Regards to all.

    where are you? I have a buddy with an industrial table mounted machine for sale -- but it'd cost that much to ship it.

    Greater Boston area. Kind of you to suggest this, but it may be too far for me to afford. Where’s your bud?

    So, I don’t have any experience with these, but I saw a video review on YouTube of a guy using one of these to stitch leather. He had to modify a few things to make it work like he wanted.

    There are a lot of different brands selling the same thing, so it looks to be China’s finest.

    I’ve toyed with the idea of buying one.
