Seiko CB3 S16
Button sewing machine (chainstitch)
Swinging needle bar model with tacker clamp.
Used Seiko CB3-S16 chainstitch industrial button sewing machine fitted with a tacking clamp.
This robust Japanese made model features the superior moving needle bar system, so the clamp & work is stationary when stitching.
Moving needle bar system is usually preferred when sewing shank buttons etc.
Assembled on unit stand with 3 phase induction motor for factory use (can also be converted to 220-240V with standard plug for an extra £70+VAT)
Currently set-up with simple tacking clamp assembly (i.e. for tacking cloth labels & tags on garments or small tacking operations). Optionally it can be fitted with shank clamp, at extra cost instead (please advise at time of order).
Sewing machine head in very good original condition, see photos.
