That machine was manufactured in Clydebank, Scotland in 1914. A definite oldy but goody.

I'd like to point out that this thread is proof that you absolutely do NOT need the best tools or a huge workshop to turn out something wonderful. A little ingenuity, some practice and a lot of time can produce great results.

I 'v got one too

The shoe maker in town has one, He restitched my Redwing boots a couple weeks ago , I bought one about 40 years ago. I welded up some angle iron brackets and mounted a singer clutch motor, But mine skips stitches, I asked a couple house hold sewing machine shops if they worked on them but now luck. Mine is 400 miles south wher we spend the winters. I don't know the model of mine.

Mine skipped stitches earlier, and I it was because of the lower thread that was too loose compared to the upper thread.
No matter how much I loosened up the uipper thread, the lower tread was still too loose.
Then I got and instruction manual that showed me how to tighten the lower thread (I didn't know that was possible).

After tightening the lower thread a bit, the stitches became perfect. The machine have never skipped a stitch after that.
