new (to me) sewing machine
My dad past away and my mom gave me his sewing machine. He was a leather worker and always talked about how well this machine worked for him. I know he did a few interiors with it among a long list of other leather items. I learned alot from him but I never asked him to teach me to sew with this machine. So here I am wanting to learn and I have no idea what I have and what I need to do to learn.
The sewing machine is a Nakajima dbu 180l-2. I have alot of leather experience but it is with hand sewing thicker leathers and tooling/carving. Very little with machine sewing. I am having a hard time finding much information about it and can't find a manual or user's guide.
Can anyone help me out? Is it a decent machine? Anywhere I can get information on maintanence or how to use it?
Thanks in advance.
