Singer industrial sewing machines are renowned for being very strong. In fact, they have especially been designed to work on tough kinds of fabrics and also for other industrial applications as well. Each such machine has a motor that is strong, robust and reliable and which is sure to give proven professional end results.
Singer industrial sewing machines played a very important role during the Second World War when they were widely being used in the production of trousers and shirts as well as shoes, and overcoats and a lot more for the war effort. As far back as in the year 1941, these sewing machines were used with good effect in the making of pup tents.
Most Singer industrial sewing machines at that time were produced and used for the war effort and the models used were essentially those that applied to the needle trade. Later on, however, more specialized machines were produced and these were used in bulk. Some classic versions were produced that made it easier to sew leather as well as canvas while others were designed and used for the making of heavier leather items which included items that enabled you to stitch leather that was even an inch thick.
Certain models at that time (during the Second World War) were made with a stand and table and these were mainly deployed in places that were remote and inaccessible and which were also frontline stations. Such machines would be airdropped by parachutes to personnel working in forward areas and then the machines would then be used to repair tents, clothing as well as camouflage items.
