The KS-335A is a cylinder-bed compound feed lockstitch sewing machine that allows you to easily sew tubular items that would be more difficult to sew on flat-bed machines. You can fit cuffs, shoes, bags, hats, and more into this machine’s narrow cylindrical arm and sew stitches in challenging areas. In addition to the cylindrical arm, this machine has a walking foot that makes sewing thick items or multiple layers of fabric easier than ever. A walking foot moves in unison with the feed dogs to grip the fabric and pull it evenly through the machine. This feature makes the KS-335A perfect for sewing multiple layers because it prevents the layers from shifting and creating distorted stitches and puckering. Along with a walking foot, this machine has a presser foot height of 13 mm, which allows you to sew the bulkiest and thickest of items. When it comes to stitching, the KS-335A has an adjustable stitch length between 1 and 6 mm and a reverse stitching feature so you can sew backward. And finally, to save you time and money, the KS-335A has a semi-automatic lubrication system.

Bought this after inquiring what size bobbin this machine had. Was informed it was a big bobbin (M) so made the purchase. After UPS drug their feet we received it in 14 business days. Upon setting up we noticed it did not have the big bobbin. We contacted the seller, they apologized and offered to discount the machine for what would have been return freight and what we estimated was the cost of the correct big bobbin
assembly. After our machine tech (pretty sure he’s a wizard) set everything up it has been sewing edge binding on marine canvas and doing cover stitching on marine vinyls. It is patterned on the pfaff 145 with the exception of the lower cylinder arm
assembly. In the interim we have no complaints and we’ll most likely get our money back when we’re able to upgrade to the high end cylinder bed.
