Default Leather Sewing Machine/Stitcher in the UK

Hello All,
i've prob asked this a long time ago, but this pc at work is as fast as me at thinking
Anyways due to me ol joints not being like they used to i am crippled after hand stitching even one sheath, so can anyone advise direct me at locating an ideal manually or power operated sewing machine for stitching my sheaths.
as it is only for sheaths i'm not after something thats going to be like launching Apollo 10, but at the same nothing Dog Toffee
available funds 1P to around 5-600 upwards.
Preferbly in the Nottingham or Norfolk area for ease of transportaion.

As always any help will be greatfully appreciated.

Might not be thick enough for sheath leather that Mike.

I know a leatherworker who has a proper leather stitching machine. It cost him 4000 from the states (iirc) as he said he searched for years for one here and never found anything suitable.

By all means try a heavy duty singer, but im not too sure they would cope with 9mm of leather.
