How does it work?
This machine is hand powered. The lever on the right side of the machine operates just Like a slot machine handle. A pull of the handle all of the way down and all of the way up is one full lock stitch.
What is the advantage of hand powered over an electric machine?
This machine is completely self-sufficient. The Boss can be clamped to any table, tailgate, or tradeshow table and put to work immediately. There is no need to for any electrical hook-ups, because this machine is completely hand driven.
I am new to sewing, will I be able to use this machine?
Yes. The Boss is ready to sew out of the box, however there is a learning curve to properly adjusting the machine to your project. Learning how to adjust tension, stitch length and foot pressure will help to produce high quality workmanship . We include an owners manual and instructional DVD. We also offer a Toll Free tech line to help to learn the ins and outs of the Tippmann Boss. The simple design of the Boss allows even the beginner to learn to sew with a machine.
What types of material will the boss sew?
The Boss is used for sewing all types of material: leather, rubbers, nylon webbing, cloth, tarp and sail materials up to 3/4" thick.
Will this machine sew thicker than 3/4"?
No, it is not recommended to sew over 3/4" thickness, however there have been individuals who claim to have sewn up to 1". If you have a need to sew over 3/4", this machine is not recommended.
What type of thread should I use with the boss?
Included with the Boss, is size 277 white nylon thread. It is bonded nylon with a left twist. Tippmann carries a full line of colors and sizes. If buying from a different source, make sure you purchase a quality thread. Polyester thread is also used widely with the Boss. Waxed thread and linen thread are not recommended.

5 (Out of 5)The Boss
A great machine for Hobby leather work. I make a few belts and gun belts and would love one of these. Can these be obtained in the UK anywhere. We have a shortage of leather craft machines so everything has to be hand stitched. ps: its a great machine and takes up little room. Thanks Keith Morrison kmorrison@btinternet.com

Just got my BOSS, I've been hand stitching for the last two years. I got stated making holsters and belts for friends at work. I work on movie sets, and my hand work got noticed by a few of the crew members of the wardrobe departments. This has bloomed into a good money making side line job. I decided to speed my output up.this has been the perfect choice,not much space and no electric needed. Only two hours from the time I opened the box to the time I was stitching with ease. Great product!!! Thanks..
5 (Out of 5)I love my Boss
I love my Boss. I originally bought it as a 'new, but out of warranty' (whatever that means) demo from an individual. Well, it skipped stitches & just wasn't working properly. I finally called & spoke with Mr. Tippmann directly, who said to send it back. Bottom line, it was repaired perfectly at no cost to me. Tippmann stands behind their products!
5 (Out of 5)Thriving Leatherworking Business
It is the best made, easiest model available to leatherworkers. I couldn't sew a stitch until I received my Boss (and I tried numerous machines) and now I have a thriving leatherworking business with all the sewing done on the Boss. In addition to that, I have never had a problem and it is designed to be simple to fix and maintain for the layman or the master leathercrafter.
