Sailrite Ultrafeed LS 1 Walking Foot Sewing Machine

Sailrite Ultrafeed LS 1
Sailrite Ultrafeed LS-1

The Sailrite Ultrafeed LS-1 sewing machine features a mechanical walking presser foot that moves forward and back in time with the feed dog to ensure that the layers of fabric are consistently moving together through the machine. The result—heavy, bulky and even sticky fabrics like leather and window material are easily sewn with consistently symmetrical stitch lengths.

The Sailrite Ultrafeed LS-1 sewing machine features a mechanical walking presser foot that moves forward and back in time with the feed dog to ensure that the layers of fabric are consistently moving together through the machine. The result—heavy, bulky and even sticky fabrics like leather and window material are easily sewn with consistently symmetrical stitch lengths.

Sewn stitches can be made extra long (up to 6mm) with the variable stitch length mechanism. This reduces needle pucker for professional quality upholstery and canvas work. The Sailrite Ultrafeed LS-1’s walking foot with its aggressive bottom gripping surface creates a large, positive contact between the foot, the feed dog and the fabric itself. Walk over thick hems and make the transition from thick to thin without skipping stitches.

Excellent power is provided by a 110 VAC motor that develops 6600 rpm at 1.5 amps and a cogged belt and pulley drive system. In addition, a special large diameter balance wheel (the PowerPlus wheel) slows the machine down and dramatically enhances power. This wheel has been specially designed to work with our Posi-Pin clutching system. The Posi-Pin is a patented (#7438009) direct drive mechanism that results in 100% power transfer from the balance wheel to the machine’s needle. This novel system is much better than the typical compression clutch which is prone to slippage in heavy materials. Variable speed operation of the sewing machine is provided by an electronic foot control. The Sailrite Ultrafeed LS-1 Sewing Machine is a powerful, well designed machine.

Reversing is easy with the lever activated mechanism and, because the machine feeds so well, back stitching for long distances is possible. A welting tunnel built into the presser foot simplifies piping installation. Ultrafeeds are great tools for building cushions which have piping trimmed edges. And, because the needle is offset to the right in the presser feet, it is possible to install most zippers without changing to a zipper foot. Even beginning sewers find the Ultrafeed to be a very straight forward, easy to learn machine.

Sailrite provides excellent support. The custom guidebook features set-up and use, threading, lubrication, home sewing, general troubleshooting, and a detailed parts schematics. Interactive (menu driven) instructional DVD videos make use even easier. And, of course tollfree support is available within the United States.

Sew as many as 10 layers of heavy canvas material or 8 layers of tightly woven, hard to penetrate 8oz Dacron (Zigzag stitching is best for sail repair. If this is your primary intent please take a look at the Ultrafeed LSZ-1 sewing machine.) Repair sails, make cushions, covers, awnings and leather goods. Install zippers, plastic windows, boltropes, shorten jeans, fix a tent, do auto upholstery. Use the Ultrafeed for crafts, upholstery, draperies, quilting and general home sewing—its performance and versatility are hard to beat!
