Brother LS2-B837 is a single needle, lockstitch, compound feed, industrial sewing machine with walking foot and reverse, which is exactly what you need for auto upholstery. It, like many other industrial sewing machines, is a copy of the original Singer 111W sewing machine. It will work just fine for anything you want to sew.

I have had really good luck with the Reliable SewQuiet 3000 and 4000. They now make the SewQuiet 5000, and the 3000 model is not available any more. These are more expensive, the 4000 is $179.00, and the 5000 is $199.00, but the performance is light years ahead of other servo motors. I have always dealt with a company called All-Brands online. Just do a Google search, you'll find them.
