Should I Purchase a Walking Foot Sewing Machine by HDSew

Are household sewing machines giving you problems? Maybe you attempting to sew 5mm of leather products – and you just keep skipping stitches and breaking needles. Don’t worry the problem is not you! You are just using a sewing machined not equipped to sew such a project. Many of our customers are sewing for business or income purposes. You really have to use the right tools for each sewing application. Check the gears and the assembly of your sewing machine- if you see any plastic assemblys or gears- it’s not you- it’s definitely your sewing machine.

Maybe you asked a friend or researched the internet…but you need a heavy duty sewing machine- a machine with all metal gears and internal parts. Next thing you should ask yourself is “what type of material am I sewing, how coarse is the material, and how many mm of thickess am I trying to sew?” These are the most important things to know when you pick out your next sewing machine.

For example, if you know that you are only going to sew 3mm thickness of lets say-denim material. You’ll need a heavy duty household sewing machine such as the HDSew PowerQuilter or HDSew PowerZigZag. These two machines will completely handle this application. But let’s say sometimes you have projects like canvas or leather materials up to 5-6mm in thickness. You will need the HDSew PortaWalker Walking Foot Sewing Machine. This portable industrial walking foot machine comes equipped with two very important mechanisms.

The first important mechanism is a built in walking foot. This two piece walking foot mechanism is composed of two sides- the inner side which holds down the fabric, and the outer side which helps feed the fabric through the sewing zone. The slippage is minimal due to the HD grips on the bottom of the walking foot. Your ultimate benefit in using this built in walking foot is even feeding and high quality stitches. The second important mechanism in our PortaWalker machine is a geared belt pulley system. Most sewing machines use a normal belt pulley system with no gears. When you use a geared system, you get ultimate penetration power so your needle doesn’t bend or break.

So just remember, if you are trying to sew 5-6mm thick you’ll need the HDSew PortaWalker sewing machine. The benefits you’ll receive from the built in walking foot mechanism and and the geared belt pulley will enable you to sew heavy duty projects for canvas, leather, boating materials, bags, camping equipment and much more. There is zero substitute for a built in walking foot. Normal household sewing machines don’t compare on any level. This is why it’s important to first ask yourself— “what type of material am I sewing, how thick in mm, and how coarse”.
