Sometimes, we wonder about the right needle or thread to do an upholstery project in leather. This video would give us an idea about the use of the correct needle and thread for a determined project. If I want to sew a thin leather material, so, we should use a 'thin needle and thread'...if I rather use a big needle, it would leave 'big holes' and my leather project would look ugly. I would advise a 'standard needle' to do car upholstery with a Pfaff 1245 ...it is a 140=22 needle size...it works well with the thin 'standard thread' most of the upholsterers use. The thicker thread is used on 'double/french stitches'. I hope you find it useful! Cesar

I want to share a tip that would help to regulate the alternating 'presser feet' of a Pfaff 1245-706 if for some reason was misadjusted. I hope you find it useful! Cesar
Ho Hsing G60 servomotor installed in a PFAFF 1245 industrial sewing machine, compared to the original servomotor, an ESDA YX. The ESDA's slowest speed was too fast for my needs, so my dealer exchanged that motor with the Ho Hsing one, and I'm very happy with the new motor, as it allows to sew very slowly, or extremely fast, depending on your needs.
I designed this to roll beneath workbench in workshop. Top with servo can be taken to marina to use on boat canvas which was not possible with standard table.
