Used & Surplus Sewing Machines On Hand!

Those of you who have dealt with us for a long time know that we don't usually keep sewing machines on hand. But now we do!

We've made room for four machines, now available for purchase and pick up in our west Nashville office/warehouse at 233 Oceola Avenue (37209 - behind the Charlotte Pike Kroger).

All machines are complete with table, stand, 110 volt motors, thread stand, and bobbin winders if applicable.

Sorry - these machines are available for on-site purchase only and all sales are final. So if you're interested in one, give us a call first to let us know you're coming, bring your thread and fabric to try them out if you want, and do the cash and carry thing.

Here's what we have available as of today:
Juki DLN-415-4 (used) single needle, needle feed flatbed high speed sewing machine. Excellent for use on denim, upholstery, and other tough to feed fabrics. REDUCED!: $550.00 complete.

Willcox & Gibbs 516-4-51 (used) five thread true safety stitch especially suited for heavy materials. Submerged setup. REDUCED!: $650.00 complete.

Consew 205RB-1 (new) single needle large bobbin walking foot machine with reverse. Ideal for upholstery and leather work. REDUCED!: $1,075.00 complete.

Consew 2043R-1 (new) artisan zig-zag machine with reverse. Use as a tailoring machine. Also can be used for free-hand embroidery. Similar to Singer 20U. REDUCED!: $625.00 complete.

We also have some excellent used Bevco ergonomic upholstered sewing chairs with hydraulic lift available to go with the machines for $90.00 each. Come on down!


  1. Hello,
    Would the consew 2043R-1 (like Singer 20U) be a good machine to use for making blue jeans? I use 69v and 92v weight poly threads, which are pretty thick. Also, I sew a lot of Sunbrella.
    Let me know.

  2. Thanks for your question. It is possible to do jeans with a machine like the 2043, but not advisable. Because jeans have a lot of thick seams (not unlike working with Sunbrella), you will encounter feeding problems. Thus it would be better to use a needle feed machine like the Juki shown on this posting, or better yet a walking foot like the 205.
