Thanks, those pics say a lot. How thick can you go with the material that you bind. I'm thinking of quilts.
Or .......... If one has multiple machines one could set one up with the binder and leave it. I think that's what I'd do.
Ron, is your machine a ZZ or SS? And is that a walking foot I see?
It is a walking foot. So, I can do special jobs such as multi-layered webbing sewing.

Thank you again everyone!
I ended up ordering the Sailrite swing-away, 1" binding attachment. Definitely not the cheapest, but with the time and effort it will save me (not to mention what I hope will be a superior result!), it will be well worth it! I can't tell you how many hours I've spent and how many tears I've shed in abject frustration in trying to bind the inner seams of these instrument cases! (Though I do still expect to have a bit of trouble with the concave curves...)
Since I have to do these on every single thing I sell, I decided to go with the swing-away version for just $10 more than the stationary one.
Fingers crossed!!! And Macy- I'll let you know how this works for the cardboard-thick layers of a 3-dimensional case if you'd like! Maybe we can help save your husband some time and suffering!
I'm waiting until my husband is home this weekend to look over them and decide what to get. I'm looking at a set for the Bernina - I expect they will fit any machine, but if not, Dh's Bernina can always be used for all binding.
