If you provide links, things will arrive quicker. Suppliers are preferred in this order:

  • Is there room for an industrial sewing machine - probably in the dirty room or the lobby ? I see them come up from time to time and think they'd be useful for tougher projects than a domestic machine can handle (e.g. sewing webbing straps etc.). They're no bigger than a domestic one, but will have a stronger mechanism, very few fancy features, and will usually be mounted in a worktable about 800x500mm. As it happens, there are some available on 7th august. --Artag 15:50, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
