Professional Zigzag Sewing Machine Complete in a Stand with the MC-SCR Power System is a big, commercial straight and zigzag "Walking Foot" machine for the sewing professional and for the amateur with serious intentions or a really large boat. Many amateurs are ready to take on bigger projects and many professionals have found that there is really nothing in current production that meets their needs. The Sailrite Professional engineered from the ground up as a machine for canvas and sail production work. It will do everything needed and it will do it with greater consistency and ease than you ever imagined.
The Professional is a full size, rotary machine that features a powered "Walking Foot" similar to the Ultrafeed’s but with a large hook and bobbin mechanism to reduce the frequency of bobbin winding and allow for the use of very heavy thread. It sews a 5mm long straight stitch and a 10 mm wide zigzag stitch. Maximum sewing speed is 1550 stitches per minute with the included MC-SCR motor and controller (the Professional head is rated to handle up to 2500 spm - running the machine slowly increases reliability). It has reversing capability.
This Sailrite Professional Sewing Machine is fitted with a cam making the zigzag stitch a 4-point stitch. The 4-point zigzag can reduce production time because it requires only one seam. It is especially useful for spinnakers and one design sailmaking. All Professional 4-point machines also come with a cam that produces a 2-point zigzag stitch. Switching between the two cams is simple and easy.
Use the Professional for heavy materials and thick fabric assemblies as well as light to medium work. It is an excellent choice for everything from spinnakers to 10oz storm sails. We guarantee that this machine will outperform anything in its class.

Sailrite recommends the PowerPlus Wheel for the MC-SCR Power System (#100847) as an upgrade to the Sailrite Professional. The PowerPlus wheel will slow the machine down even further and once again increase power. Top speed with the PowerPlus wheel is 800 stitches per minute.
