    What makes the Techsew 5100 Special Edition so special?

    *Techsew SmartServo-NP Needle Position Motor
    The Techsew SmartServo-NP is an automatic needle positioning motor which saves you tons of time and effort while sewing. This powerful and versatile motor will automatically lift the needle at the end of a seam, or automatically leave it in the bottom position. This will eliminate the need to constantly turn your handwheel to position your needle.

    At 4/5HP and 600W, The SmartServo-NP will help your machine power through thick leather at any of the 16 adjustable speed settings. Additionally, a speed reducer is used in combination with the SmartServo-NP motor for added power and speed control. This system is ideal for beginner, intermediate and expert sewers as well.

    Techsew TLG Laser Guide
  • This is a first on the market. The Techsew TLG Laser Guide provides a perfectly straight laser guided line directly in front of your needle. No more grooving your leather before sewing - now you'll get a perfectly straight seam every time by sewing right along the laser guided line.

    Swing Down Roller Guide
  • Our exclusive swing down roller guide will help guide the edge of your leather to deliver perfectly straight stitches. The swing down roller guide swings up and out of the way for when you want to turn your work or sew without it.

    Flatbed Table Attachment
  • Are you sewing long or flat items? The flatbed table attachment fits directly over the cylinder arm of the machine, instantly converting it to a flatbed machine. Now your large projects won't fall or hang over the edge of the cylinder bed.

    Stainless Steel Plated Presser Feet
  • Our specialty presser feet are narrow for sewing into tight spaces and around edges. Plus they're stainless steel plated and smooth on the bottom so they won't mark up your leather. The center groover foot will set your stitches at the same level as your leather, protecting the stitches from the elements.

    TS-5 LED Stitch Light
  • The TS-5 LED Stitch Light will illuminate the sewing area, providing up to 10,000 hours of clear and bright light.

Hi John,I have been comparing machines, warranty, packages included and what needs to be purchased in addition to the machine. Come to realize the 5100SE is the best option all around. Just a few quick questions to make sure this machine will be able to sew these lighter weight items:    *  light to medium weight leather     *  Faux leather     *  canvas hats    *  medium to heavy DenimYes it would be fine for all these but the minimum sewing thickness would be 2mm or a single layer of 5oz leather. It is not recommended for very thin materials or very soft leather. When a lighter weight item is sewn, do you suggest a stabilizer be used under the item?Perhaps but again if the material is too thin the results may not be suitable. I am not familiar with leather in terms of ounces.Here is a leather oz/ thickness chart:https://howtoleather.com/how-to-choose-leather-thickness/  Are there other types of needles to use besides the 18 -27?The machine uses needle sizes 18 through 27 and is commonly used in the mid range with size 22 to 25.Here is some more information on needles sizes:https://www.techsew.com/us/learn/needle-buying-guide.html  I don't know what the needle sizes look like? The machine can only handle these size thread?  69 – 415Yes but we recommend using minimum size 92 or 138https://www.techsew.com/us/learn/nylon-thread-buying-guide.html What is the weight of the machine?Total weight of the complete sewing machine unit including table and motor is approximately 350 lbs. The dimensions are approximately 46x21x55". I sent you a picture of what I do.Sew the patches onto the vests.Many times I open the hem up to sew the ones at the pockets and at the back.  Then it is hard for my machine to sew the hem back together.  I have the Husqvarna Viking Epic 2 and the 980Q machines.  I don't want to mess up the embroidery mechanisms.The machine is suitable for sewing the patches per your photos.
