This afternoon after lunch I took some time to wander a new to me antique mall.
I spotted a familiar bentwood case and got closer to inspect it.
After raising the cover I discovered a machine I had never seen before. It looks like a three-quarter sized machine that's been motorized. There is no belt the motor bushing that's right up against the handwheel to turn the handwheel to sew.
It can't be treadles as is because there is no grill for the belt so that would need a new piece.
However it might be a great candidate for a handcrank!
I've never seen details like this or this brand and I'm greatly intrigued thinking I need to go back and get it!
But for now, my sanity kicks in and tells me enough is enough. For now, anyway.
