Sewing Machine Capacity

I have an old, heavy, steel, Kenmore sewing machine, model 2142 or 158.120. I've read that it is a relatively HD machine.
What weight of material would this machine sew well? Could it sew three layers of 21 oz cotton duck?

Hello and welcome to the forum!
As long as it fits under the foot, it should have no problem. Make sure you're using the right size needle. A #16 should work.
