The FY0303 is a walking foot flat-bed lockstitch industrial sewing machine that is ideal for sewing thick items like leather, upholstery, canvas, tents, bags, and more. Its walking foot is a unique feature 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 FY0303 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 high presser foot height of 15 mm to help you sew the bulkiest and thickest of items. The FY0303 also has an adjustable stitch length that can go as high as 9 mm, which allows you to switch between shorter and stronger seams to longer and looser seams, depending on the project and material. Lastly, the FY0303’s automatic oiling system keeps the machine lubricated at all times, ensuring that maintenance is always mess-free.
