Our "Newest" Machine
This is our newest hand crank machine, from the thrift shop, as usual. It is an odd one. I have never heard of this brand, which looks like Tim or Jim.
This is the name on the back of the machine where you can open it for oiling.
The tension mechanism is on the opposite side to most machines and the needle threads from left to right. It has the round bobbin, not the long one, so it can't be all that old.
Here is the crank end, also a bit unusual. The case has a curved wooden top that locks on, but I forgot to take a photo with the lid on. It looks a lot like the old singer cases but this one is quite a lot longer, partly due to the large area on the end for attachments.
Does anyone know anything about this kind of machine? It's in very good condition with the gold almost perfectly intact. It sews a beautiful stitch.
