Here is my new treadle sewing machine named "Review". I have searched the name and come up empty handed. There appears to be no branding on the machine. Upon further examination last night, I noticed that there is another name under the word "Review". It begins with an "N" and ends with and "AL". Sitting home here this morning, I am thinking it might have been called "National", however I think the first few letters are "New". Just above the letter "V" you can see that the script is high as in a new word or a letter such as "t" or "l" or "f". I don't like mysteries that I can't solve.
The case, which is a "coffin case" has seen brighter days. The veneer is in a shambles. The front side of the "coffin" is also marked "Review". I straight away broke the leather cord and will need to replace that. I am hoping to go and do a small bit of cleaning with soap and water today and possibly oil it. It seems to be working fine. It moves without much trouble using the hand wheel. I have not tried to treadle as yet.
Threading the machine.
The bobbin, which I successfully took out and threaded again with the help of a YouTube video.
There was a metal box FILLED with attachments and feet. I have no clue about any of them.
Help me if you can.
I was thrilled to see that there are FIVE bobbins.
This manual seems to have the closest resemblance to my box of goodies.
Is the twirly thing on the right top a hemmer?
Wheels and washers? Help!
On the left of this photo I think is a "tuck marker" then a "shirring plate" and on the right a "braider plate".PDF, this, and this have helped lots. Anybody have any ideas about this machine? Have you ever treadled?
