YuKonstruct has an industrial sewing machine - the Singer 491D.
YuKonstruct is the first makerspace in Canada's north. Our mission is to provide access to shared space, quality tools, available expertise, and a collaborative environment to help makers build or sew anything!
The industrial sewing is an amazing tool in our repertoire, and if you don't know anything about sewing machines... it isn't your run of the mill domestic machine.
The difference between a domestic and an industrial sewing machine is something like the difference between a regular car and a logging truck. Your car is designed to get you to the office or to the supermarket, but the logging truck will haul huge, heavy loads for 10 hours a day, every day, at highway speeds.
Using this machine, our members have made some amazing projects: mittens with wolf fur linings, dresses, aprons, leather projects, canvas shopping bags, harnesses for dogs, etc.
