IMPERIAL Industrial Strength HEAVY DUTY Sewing Machine LEATHER
I repair sewing machines since 35 years! COMPLETELY REFURBISHED, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. Ideal for soft leather & upholstery, general sewing, alteration shops, etc. This is a classic one made by Imperial in the 50's in Japan, when high quality was a priority in the world. The arm and bed were made of pure, high quality cast iron. Pure raw materials were used to create beautiful and solid things at that time. The bed and arm were cast at the Eagle foundry in Japan. Believe me, an older sewing machine will outlast many new machines!

This IMPERIAL 15 is a very user friendly sewing machine. The strong metal mechanism will allow you to do almost any sewing project doing a very nice straight lock stitch with reverse. Be assured every single part of this machine was carefully inspected, cleaned and adjusted by myself on this machine. It was completely refurbished under the highest standards of excellence.

You will enjoy the smoothness of operation and it will run just fine for years to come! INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH HEAVY DUTY IMPERIAL 15 Serial Number 582420. It uses standard needles, bobbins and LOW shank attachments available locally at any fabric store and sewing centers. Everything needed to sew like needles, bobbins, and the samples used to set up will be included. This machine is ready to go, fully threaded, right out of the box!

All the samples used to set up this machine are included! You will see the same kind of samples on all my listings, be sure they were sewn respectively with each machine and that all the samples are included with the sale.

I use a wide variety of samples to set up my machines. This way chances are the machine will sew easily most of your projects.
