Singer 20U-33 Industrial Zig-Zag and Straight Stitch Sewing Machine for sale. This machine has had very light use and is in perfect working order. This sewing machine has just had a thorough cleaning and all adjustments have been brought into spec for a perfect running machine. The stitch timing, feed mechanism, zig-zag position, needle position (left, center, right), upper and lower thread tension, motor clutch, motor brake, pressure foot height and position, upper thread tension let-off and knee lift have all been correctly adjusted. The entire machine and the motor have had a thorough cleaning and lubrication.
This machine will easily sew through 16 layers of upholstery fabric as seen in the photos when using a size 18 needle. It has a functioning reverse stitch lever. The lamp has an LED bulb. The pressure foot lifts over 1/2" with the knee lift for placing fabric under the machine. The zig-zag stitch will sew up to approximately 9mm (.35") wide.
The motor and clutch have very low use and are as easy to control the speed as a servo motor. The motor is currently set up to sew between super slow and up to 2000 stitches per minute. If you are new to industrial machines, then I will be happy to take the time to show you how to use this one.
The machine is currently set up to use a 12 size needle and thin cotton thread. I will include 3 extra bobbins. You should be able to run an 18 needle with 46 or 69 nylon with just a tension adjustment.
I have electronic copies of the user and service manuals that I can send you. If you want to test the machine with a specific fabric, then please bring it along when you come to inspect the machine.
There have been many versions of the Singer 20U produced over the last 50 or so years. This is one of the earlier versions and was made in Japan with very fine tolerances and excellent attention to detail in the manufacture and assembly, much better than in later years. It will out-sew all of the newer made 20U copies being produced by other companies. As previously stated, this machine has very low use and should last for a lifetime of use if properly cared for.
I can help load the machine into your truck or large SUV. The thread and the dollies under the machine are not included with the sale.
Cash only. Price is firm. I do not need help selling.
