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


No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

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.
