For tacking on all types of drapery work, the 8000DT with automatic thread trimmer and 8 or 16 stitch setting adjustment offers the whole package. Low noise and vibration design, and outstanding build quality; made in Taiwan.
With a modified needle bar, thicker needle, and our high-torque SewQuiet servomotor, the 8000DT will tack up to ¾” of heavy fabric with ease.
We've custom made a heavier work holder plate to prevent shifting during the machines cycle.
Getting the performance you want out of a sewing machine requires the right motor. The fourth generation SewQuiet 6000SM servomotor is the benchmark in the industry.
The perfect add on light ($99.00 retail value) is included at no extra charge for the 8000DT making it both a great drapery tacking machine and a great value.
Others skimp on the stand components, we don’t. We use only 100% plywood in our tabletops (not cheap particle board) and our legs are made from heavy-duty 3/32" steel.
