Sewing machine
#11
At home I have a Sailrite LSZ-1 (quite useful since it's portable - I use it during my work trips, at home and at the garage when needed), at work I have a TechSew 2700. Won't recommend Singer or Brother since they're quite fragile to deal with leather. Industrial ones are way much better, but they will cost you a sum. 
These guys have great recommendations for upholstery: http://www.get-up-and-go.com/upholstery-forum/index.php
And for sewing machines specs you can check some reviews like this: https://wisepick.org/best-sewing-machine-for-leather/

Fabrice i got chatting with a 76 year old upholsterer who has done the job since he was 16. He showed me his sewing machines. He has one for normal stitching and a second machine for sewing the piping. The shape of the foot on the second machine was obviously designed to go down each side of the piping. The machine that does the piping runs at a slower speed to the other one
