Machinist with heavy duty sewing machine - recommendations wanted

Recommended Posts

The carry case that my wheelchair folds into, for protection, when being thrown into the holds of aircraft  has got damaged.

I ordered a new one. It came with cutouts for stabilisers in the wrong place. Result it won’t close. Company who manufacture have gone into liquidation as a result of covid.

Looking for machinist who can repair the original, and put a reinforced base in the new one and cut and stick around new openings.

Material is a heavy duty nylon weave like a canvas.

Has Salmon's shoe repairs gone, along with KFC? If not, they'll have the gear to do it.

If Salmons can’t help, I think Alan Taylor in Laxey could easily do any repair. He of Manx Leathers fame.

Jenny down at 7th Wave in Port Erin has a big industrial machine. She makes boat covers and sails. If all else fails you could try her

Thanks Neil, and Quilp and Dilli. I’ve sourced an almost new second hand one on e-bay, for now. Cheap as chips. In fact I picked it up for a winning bid which was less than the cost of postage.

However The original still needs repair, and the new one with the holes wrongly located needs altering.

A sail maker/repairer is a good idea. I may be able to get one in a whacky colour way.
