I feel cheated.  I opened this thread expecting to find a super-sized chainsaw.

That be a really nice sewing machine. What features does it have? Straight stitch only? Self cut feature? Auto threading? What do you plan to make?

I have owned a very heavy duty Brother industrial unit in a table for years. It has served me well.

Same here RustE. Was wondering if it was bigger than my 576xp with a 30" bar

And I was thinking maybe a big zero turn. Although I guess the sewing machine could do some zero turn stitching?  [sad]

It doesn't even look like a whole box.  Are you hiding something behind that piece of cardboard?  What's behind Husqvarna box part #1?

Let's see the actual machine!

A commercial walking foot machine is one of those things I'm on the prowl for at estate sales and going out of business auctions.

When did they start making them in Taiwan?
I had a 2, 3 or maybe 400 year anniversary model in the mid 80's.

Well, I was expecting a nice offroad trail bike...

We have a Husqvarna Viking (sewing machine) which was my Mother's - it must have been amazingly sophisticated (and expensive) in its day (1960s). All the various stitches and modes were achieved by a set of interchangeable cams and mechanical adjustments, with little or no electronics.
I'm pretty certain it wasn't made in Taiwan -- (though that isn't necessarily a surefire indicator of a diminution in quality).

It depends upon the model, the various models are currently produced in Sweden, Taiwan and China.

I wish I could answer your questions, gentlemen, but I don't know the first thing about sewing machines.  [big grin]

Unless you want a full blown commercial unit with a steel frame, Keep an eye out for a Sailrite walking foot. They are designed sail making which is some seriously tough material. They can easily handle a #20 and bigger needles. Ebay and Craigslist searches can be setup to let you know when one is available. I missed a little used one that sold for $250. My friend has one I borrow when I need to sew ultra heavy duty stuff, and can vouch for the machines usability.

Well what model number is it?

Whatever model number it is, it's a lot cheaper than the $1500-6000 ones
I alotted for.  It's day job related (which I'm not allowed to connect to my internet presence)  [big grin], and it's whatever the person using it requested.    I can find out the model number though.   I can do that much.  I really can.  Cub Scout honour.

Which just happens to be the church lady sewing machine of choice, and I'd bet those ladies know their stuff when it comes to sewing machines.

You've got me watching the whole Heirloom Creations video series and reading the adjacent article as to why they reccomend it to church ladies.   👌
