Sewing machine or ????

I found a Jaguar epochlock 234D in our storage, it's fairly old but in great shape; Can't find any info or a manual on it, does anybody have a clue where I could find a manual for this machine.

Jaguar 234D

Hi There. I saw your question about the sewing machine. I have a Jaguar 214. Same machine as the 234D, but mine doesn't have the differential feed.
The instruction manual is the same for both, and I do have one. I was told, by a sewing machine supply company, that Jaguar was made by White. They no longer make the Jaguar, but maybe they could help with the instruction manual.
If they can't help, let me know, I can scan it and send it to you. Or, if you are
considering selling it, I would be interested. Hope this helps.

Hey chicarae, thanks for the info; I was hoping it would be something we could use for sail and canvas repair but, it dosen't sound like it does that kinda work.

PM me a offer cuz right now it's in the backseat of my truck about to go on that guys list ( gary's, kurts or whatever his name is )

And, welcome to sailnet

Does anyone know where I could get a sewing machine that would work for sails and canvas?

yea,sailrite sells them they start at about $900 and go up from that.
I have 2 aboard and they seem to do the job. last year I made porthole
awnings,sail covers,grill cover,9' umbrella,recovered deck chairs and a complete cockpit enclosure w/ zip-out windows,screens and shades.
I've cut down sails,repaired sails,made inflatable dinghy chaps,etc.
So,to me it was a worthwhile investment.
I've also done repair and fabrication for other sailors we've met along the way.
Other folks I've talked to have had differing opinions about the models I have,some have said they were difficult to adjust or dropped stitches, but I
think it was an adjustment and operator issue.
To do sail work you will want one w/ zig-zag stitch capability.
Overall it's a decent machine for the money, and I'm pretty frugal.

Thanks,
If I can do my own sail and canvas work that machine would pay for itself in short time- I just need to learn how to sew.

Sailrite Zig-Zag

We also have a Sailrite Zig-Zag machine and my wife Debbie has taught me how to sew basic stuff. We have made many items including a Bimini for our former Catalina 30, sail boat. We now have another sail boat and are continuing to make items. It seems we find things to make you would not normally do
We just mad shade screens for our large side windows on our Islander Freeport sail boat.
Well worth the money if you have a boat. There are other machine options. You could look at Keystone Brothers as they sell industrial machines.

As a further note:
We are moving onto our sail boat at the end of this month 5-1-11 and are selling out sewing table.
It fits the Sailrite machines and was purchased from Sailrite.
if interested it is in San Diego and we would like $125.00 for the whole setup excluding the machine.
Includes thread pole, light, drawer and whatever else I am forgetting.
