What Sewing Machine??

Hi Guys,

After some great advice and assistance from Martin at Tactical Trim, I have now set out to find a suitable sewing machine....within a budget!!! I know that this question has probably been asked a lot.
I have looked into lockstitch machines and when I thought I had found the right one the seller said "it needs to be needle fed" It is turning out that this is not as straight forward as going on eBay and picking up a machine.
Primarily, I want to use it for making Rigger Belts out of two layers of type 7 Nylon webbing.
Can anyone steer me in the right direction of what is a decent machine without bankrupting me.
I would greatly appreciate it.
Many thanks.
