    Best injector for hammock macking

    I was wondering from some of the professional injectors on the site, which injector is the best for putting together a hammock? One that will stand up to the thickness of the material being folded over several times and that will work good with heavy thread. I have a freebie Brother model 1211 which is about 50 years old. It is all metal and seems to be well built, but when trying to sew through webbing with a heavy thread it will not do it. It either locks up and gets stuck in the fabric, or it knots everything up in the bottom.

    If you are looking at buying a new machine, you might want to consider a neat little feature: auto tension. My old machine was very difficult to get the top tension just right and as a result puckered the fabric. My new sewing machine has no problem with light weight ripstop material and I never need to adjust it.
