These hand crank toy sewing machines were made for the little girl who wanted to sew along with Mom.
This was labeled as a hand crank toy sewing machine also, with a made by singer label, but I couldn't find any kind of model number on it.
This is an old Edison Super De-Luxe Precision made in Japan. I love the label.. guaranteed by The Manufacturer and Authorized Dealers! It had missing parts and frayed wiring and was covered in dust and cobwebs....EEEWWWW
I love the carved woodwork on this Singer table and the beautiful gold stenciling on the sewing machine. At first look, I thought it was a treadle, but it came complete with a Radiante motor. It was probably worth every penny they were asking for, but I had to think real hard before walking away without this one.
These next items came home with me because I felt they were unique and interesting.
I found this simple wooden box on a shelf and opened it up to find an assortment of attachments. I have to take it to my Singer man and see if he can identify what any of it was used for. Maybe I can use them with my treadle. There is a carved stamp in the middle of the box top that reads "Patented February 13 1930" I'm not positive about the year though.
Here is a Free-Westinghouse . This is definitely not the featherweight I was looking for...it is very heavy! The current owner was there filling her booth with additional items and offered me a deep discount to take it off her hands. She plugged it in and showed me that it runs; the light has it's own separate plug. It came with a box full of attachments that the owner had no idea what they were used for. This machine is unique to me too because it has a Bullet Bobbin (see it on the lower left hand side of the box). I've heard mention of one before... now I know what it looks like and this too must be taken to my Singer man to have him teach me how to use it! I think that's a bobbin winder on the front right of the machine. I believe I need to add a belt from the big wheel on the right to a smaller one on the front to make it run.
