Sewing a 3/4 “ drapery pleat has been virtually impossible with all but the lightest fabrics until now. We’ve modified the head and introduced direct drive technology and the ability to set the torque and speed required to tack heavy fabrics.

For tacking all types of drapery work, the 8100DT with direct drive technology allows you to set the speed of the machine and the stitch count, offering the whole package. A quieter, precise sewing experience and outstanding build quality.


MADE FOR DRAPERY TACKING, NOT BUTTON SEWING

The new 8000DT has been designed specifically for use in drapery workrooms.

UP TO 3/4" THICK PLEAT
Standard chainstitch tackers simply will not sew the thickness required by drapery workrooms. Our new 8000DT will, and can sew up to 3/4" pleats.

CUSTOM DESIGNED
We start with our standard, high quality, Made in Taiwan 8100DT chainstitch tacker head. Our technicians change the needle bar so it will handle a thicker needle, and perform a range of proprietary modifications that results in a tacker that will give you the results you need.

  • Sews up to a 3/4" pleat
  • 8 or 16 stitch setting adjustment
  • Complete stand includes a plywood table top, K-legs
