Twill tape or for small seams like in the picture, I just use a small piece of Versare. Versare is a non-woven fabric I use for a lot of different things.

The picture shows a roll of twill tape on top of a small piece of Versare. Twill tape is heavier and stronger than the Versare.

Im learning as I go, thank you very much for all of the info Dan.

I called a place locally to see if I could pick up the Tacsew for a similar price to what it is on ebay and hopefully save some shipping.... well the guy says they deal more in "industrial" machines and says Tacsew is not an "industrial" machine. I assumed it was just a different name brand of a similar design. The tacsew should be able to do everything Im hoping to do right?

Is this the machine? CLICK HERE Yes it is an industrial machine, it's a clone of the Consew 206. The guy doesn't know what he's talking about.

I think there's a certain amount of opinion and personal preference to be expected from any specialty shop, including industrial sewing machine shops. My local shop doesn't care for the Reliable brand stuff. He sells the Consew servo motor. I have the Consew motor and have no complaints. I also have a Sew Green from Keystone Sewing. It has a needle positioner(synchronizer) and was only a few more dollars than one without. Some amount of personal preference comes in to play.

I have a Reliable Sewquiet and think its great. I have rub into a lot of people in NYC who don't know what they are talking about when it comes to sewing machines, foam, thread, etc. These people seem to talk through their anus.

First of all, The Consew servo is not made by Consew, it just has the name on it. I have three Reliable SewQuiet servo motors on my machines, one is a Sewquiet 4000, and the other two are Sewquiet 3000s. I did extensive research on servos regarding features, etc. before I bought my first one, and I can tell you that they are top notch. There is a reason why the Sewquiet motors are more expensive, they are a lot better than the others. I sew for a living every day, and I need something that won't break down. None of my motors has given me the slightest problem in over three years of use. This guy sounds like he is very uninformed and just looking to make a sale at your expense. He's recommending what he can make the most profit on. Ask him to explain to you why the Consew motor is better, other than it's cheaper.
