Adler 30-1. Too old?

I can get me an Adler 30-1 sewing machine for the freight cost of 2500km.

Serial number 99674. Rebuilt with electric motor and fully functional according to the owner.
I don't have enough space to store another 40 kgs of metal scrap. Is this machine good enough for sewing me a canvas top, or is this more like an antique?

They are great machines, but what are you going to use it for when the top is done? It is basically identical to the Singer 29 cylinder bed machine. They use the same needles and a ton of other parts. They will only sew about 3/8" of thickness. Sure it will sew a canvas top, but its basic uses would be more leather saddlery or shoe repair, and any industrial sewing machine could sew the top, and probably do a better job. What in the world is a "freight cost of 2500km" ???

Thanks for your answer!
I was hoping to sew me a canvas top with it...

I get the machine for free if I pay the freight cost, and it is 2500 km away. But since my employer have a good freight agreement with a big freight company, I think the cost will be reasonable.

If you have room for it, and it's free, by all means get it, but a standard industrial sewing machine will work far better to sew a canvas top. A good one in working condition would sell for $1000 US.
