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)Whole Bunch of Good
I don't own one, but I want one. I think the Tippmann Boss is a great, one handed operation, small package. A whole bunch of good rolled up into a little bit. Thanks.
5 (Out of 5)Best Machine
When I'm asked "Who makes the best machine?" I answer "Who Else, The Tippmann Boss".
5 (Out of 5)Favorite Part Of Leatherwork
It is my favorite part of leatherwork, sewing with the Tippmann.
5 (Out of 5)The Boss is the Boss
The Boss is the Boss of the non auto machines. Built simple and like a tank so everyone can work on it for years to come.
5 (Out of 5)Operate This Machine Anywhere
I love my BOSS it allows me to sew thick leather without breaking awl blades and gives a professional finish every time. Being manually operated means you can use it in the bush around the camp fire or any where. I should have got one years ago and it is the most affordable machine available. The Tippmann staff are most supportive, thank you.
5 (Out of 5)Portable Machine
The Boss is solid construction and so easy to use. The lack of electricity make this machine portable and allows you to take it to places you can't with an electric machine.
