Industrial sewing machine for sale

Having moved out of my vast studio, I no longer have space for my Bernina Industrial sewing machine. I am sad to part with her, as she is brilliant. But I have no excuse to keep her anymore and must make space.

The details:

Bernina Industrie 850, approx 15-20 years old (but I really don’t know) I’ve had it about 5 years and have used it very little.
Good working order, includes instruction manual, a selection of feet, a vast amount of heavy duty needles, bobbins etc. It has been serviced regularly, but not for a couple of years as I haven’t been using it. Standard old Bernina feet fit this machine as far as I can tell (I have another old Bernina, not a new one).
This type of machine comes with the table stand just seen in 2nd photo. It has a HUGE motor which is attached to the table and the machine itself comes out of the table to move / service. It needs 2 strong people to carry the table but it is stored on the ground floor currently. It will fit in a medium-sized car, although a van would be easier to move it in.
The machine itself is really powerful – it will stitch much faster than a domestic machine and through thicker fabrics – these machines are commonly used for curtains & soft furnishings. It will also sew through lightweight leather quite easily. These machines are also favoured by machine embroiderers.
The machine is £400 and will require collecting from Leicester.

Any questions please email me ruth (at) ruthsinger (dot) com.
