The Highlead GC24608-1L & GC24608-1R are single needle heavy duty compound feed lockstitch sewing machines which feature a left or right post-bed design.

The post-bed design is very useful when sewing shaped items or panels etc., and is used when you need to sew into shaped items which can not be done on a standard flat-bed machine. 

The 178mm high slim post bed gives you greater access and control when sewing decorative & functional stitching on items like leather upholstery panels, shoe uppers, car seat upholstery etc.

The machine is smooth running, durable, versatile and its robust construction includes: needle roller bearings for the arm & hook shaft etc., cog driven belt assemblies and a semi-automatic oil lubrication system with sump is fitted which reduces wear & tear considerably.

As well as the post bed shape; It features a heavy duty triple feeding action by way of: bottom feed, needle feed and walking foot top feed and is fitted with a large vertically mounted hook & base for use with medium to heavy weight materials.

A safety clutch is fitted to help prevent damage to the hooks, bevel gears and other important parts, should the sewing machine become jammed or over-loaded.

The GC24608-1L & GC24608-1R are post-bed single needle, needle feed, walking foot industrial sewing machines for use on medium to heavy weight materials and are suited to sewing for example:

Leather goods, canvas/plastic, handbags, shoe uppers (leather or synthetic leather), boots, sports apparatus, office furniture, technical textiles, home upholstery, car upholstery, general panels/shapes etc.
