Speedy Stitcher impressions

(1/1)

River City John:
I picked up a Speedy Stitcher some time back but have yet to use it.

I was wondering if I could get some reviews, some tips with perhaps impressions from the community as to what type of projects would be most appropriate to use it on, how reliable for heavier duty stuff,  yada yada .

Is it more a novelty?  It seems such a simple tool that would work for small projects and the Complete Novice.

Thanks in advance.

ALSO, if this subject has been covered in this Forum before, my apologies and just point me to the reference.

Major 2:
John I had/have a couple of them from Tandy.
I used them early on but never like the loop type stitch.
If a thread is compromised the stitch will unravel.
I have not used mine in maybe 20+ plus years. reason for two was for white and black thread so I did not change spools ( easy enough but I just didn't)

I use only the two needle saddle stitch now in my holsters (& when I made them, saddles).
 I find it easier to pre-punch my holes and use a vise or stitching horse and the two needles.   

Marshal Will Wingam:
Those speedy stitchers are more useful for field repairs of leather items where appearance is secondary to getting the item back in service. They make a crude stitch compared to a good saddle stitch. Also, a double needle stitch is stronger.

Coming late to this thread (… does that qualify as a pun? …)

Anyway, my comment would be:  "Well, they aren't overly speedy, that's for sure!"  ;)

I too tend to prefer the double needle method ...
