Might I be so bold as to disagree with Allmakes.
Why would a manufacturer build different models of industrial. They are designed for differnt jobs. The 8300 is a high speed garment machine, the 1541 is a compund feed upholstery machine. The motor is the same HP and does not affect the ability to sew heavy. The garment machine will sew garment weight leather just fine but you will have problems getting the fabric to feed properly particularly over seams. The other issure you may find with a garment machine is it's ability to handle heavier threads. I suggest that the 1541 would be a better choice for making bags and purses.

SOURCE: Tension settings juki mo-644d
-If the machine is threaded correctly and the thread is flossed into the tension discs,
-if the thread is high quality and not cheap thred
the top tensions should be at 5-6 and the looper tensions should be at 4-5
Be sure it is threaded correctly (follow the threading map on the inside of the front cover of machine
Also be sure you are using a size 14 or size 90 standard Schmetz needle do not use Klasse needles
as these are to short and affecdt the timing.
