Cylinder Bed Machines ?

Do machines like the Consew 227 have a place in automotive upholstery work? I ask this question because I've run into a section on my seat cover that I feel a machine like this is much more suited to use. I'm actually going to sew this part by hand because it really is a hassle on my Consew 225 to hold and align the work in the proper fashion to stitch it correctly. The 227 would make it much easier.

This type of machine is usually used in a factory setting and set up to do a single repetitive operation, a lot like a double needle machine. Sure it would be great to have access to one, but these machines are not cheap, even used ones. I couldn't justify having one in my shop. I'd have more use for a serger, but not unless I could steal one.

About the only thing I can think of where this would be a help would be headrests and armrests, and I haven't found anything like that yet that I couldn't sew with a regular flat bed machine, and definitely not any part of the seat cover itself.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
