BIGFOOT WALKING FOOT CBSS PORTABLE HEAVY DUTY SEWING MACHINE        Home



This powerful and exciting portable machine is precision built to enable it to cope with demanding tasks such as:

* General seaming and piping (welting) in upholstery fabrics used in the home.

* For anyone working with heavy materials, heavy draperies, theatre curtains, leather, quilting, etc..

* For classic car restorers (binding carpets, upholstery, etc.).

* For caravans (zippers, cushions, repairing awnings, binding carpets and tents, etc.).

* For boats (repair sails, zippers, cushions, etc.).

* Aircraft interiors.

* For sewing very thick seams in Irish dance dresses.

* For horse owners. Horse blankets repairs (New Zealand rugs) and leather.

* Professional upholsterers working on site (for example when fitting out pubs and clubs) will find Bigfoot CBSS portable machine a useful and practical addition to their industrial workshop machinery.

* Bigfoot machines are ideal for outworkers who are producing piped cushions in heavy fabrics from home (these machines are much quieter than industrial sewing machines).

* THESE ARE GREAT MACHINES FOR ON-SITE JOBS.

* Bigfoot CBSS's robust walking foot fabric transport system makes it easy to stitch up to 10 layers of heavy canvas material. That tells you how powerful these machines are!

* Bigfoot CBSS machines run at a much lower speed than conventional industrial machines (approximately 700 stitches a minute maximum speed). This compares with a conventional walking foot industrial machine which may operate at around 2000 stitches a minute. Consequently with Bigfoot CBSS the user has much more control over the work making this machine ideal for any application where thicker work must be sewn with good control.

* Industrial sewing machine clutch motors use about 3 amps constantly (not just when you press the pedal to start sewing), Bigfoot CBSS machines use just 0.7 amps only when you press the pedal to sew. That is a big electricity saving!.

* Although Bigfoot CBSS sewing machines are designed to be portable(special one-piece reinforced plastic base eliminates the need of cut-out table), we can also provide on request an industrial type formica birch ply table top (normally 20" x 22") mounted on a special stand with lockable casters.

* Bigfoot CBSS’s foot lift clearance is approximately 7/16“ (10 mm). Bed plate distance from the needle to the vertical part of the arm is 6.75†(17.3cm). Stitches of up to approximately ¼†(6.5 mm) long can be sewn.

* Bigfoot CBSS's feeding capability is very efficient as the walking foot feeds the work in unison with the super efficient lower feed dog, allowing you to produce even stitches in demanding jobs. This "even feed" feature ensures the minimum slippage between the plies of fabric being sewn which is a big advantage when matching patterned or striped fabric. Please note that Bigfoot CBSS's walking foot is positively driven from the machine mechanism as opposed to passive walking feet attachments found on most domestic sewing machines.

* BigFoot CBSS has a reverse stitch lever and built-in bobbin winder.

* Bigfoot CBSS boasts a powerful 150 watt 1/10th horse power motor which is equipped with an efficient reduction gear system driven by 2 toothed belts for extra power and control. 150 watts provides more than twice the power of many domestic sewing machines. The motor amperage is rated at 0.7 amps.

* Bigfoot CBSS machines use the same needles as standard industrial sewing machines. This enables thicker work to be sewn than is possible with ordinary domestic sewing machine needles. The needles are available in many thicknesses and types to enable the owner to best tackle different jobs.

* Bigfoot CBSS can easily use threads up to size 36!. Ask us for advice on threads.

* The foot pressure can easily be changed to sew in different weights of fabric by means of a knurled screw.

* A very practical advantage of these machines is that the user is able to easily access all the working parts in order to lubricate and clean them.

* The machine body of Bigfoot CBSS is of sturdy cast iron construction. Big foot CBSS models are mounted in a base equipped with an effective folding extension table giving the user approximately 9 ½ “ (25 cm) work support to the left of the needle.

* The machine packs away into a carrying case. Packed away the machine measures 20†x 14 ¼†x 9 1/4 “ (51 cm x 36.2 cm x 23.5 cm). Weight 36 pound (16.5 kg).

* Big Foot CBSS takes standard type 15 bobbins available worldwide.

Included with the machine are:

* Standard foot with shallow piping groove.
* Needles.
* Oil.
* Bobbins.
* Manual.
* Large and small screwdrivers.
* Carrying case.
* Special thread stand. This stand is a great economiser, as all sizes of thread cone or reel up to 10,000 m can be used.

Optional extras:

* Zip foot.
* Single and double piping (welting) feet 1/4".
* 12 volt LED needle light with transformer.
* Smooth foot for top stitching in leather.
