Need help with indentifying a unique sewing mahine

HallisG | Posted in Sewing Machines & Sergers on

Hello everyone,
I’m a sewing enthusiast. Recently I have picked up a very unique sewing machine, I have no idea what kind of sewing machine it is, could someone help me with identifying this sewing machine. Pictures attached here, thank you.

    Hi HallisG,
    This machine is too much old stuff and not working nowadays. As you're fond of sewing machines then you should go for latest and modern sewing machines with digital features. These machines are more user friendly and fast working which surely help you in your sewing tasks. You can view this article for choosing best machine according to your need.

      The old machines may be great, well built, heavy duty, no electronic boards to replace. Look at the old treadle machine your grandmother used. My last machine lasted around 10 years, using it about once a month. My new machine needs the dealer JUST TO CHANGE THE LIGHT BULB! Your old machine if it is not working is a great decorator item in your sewing room.

    I imagine Hallis is just looking to identify the unusual antique machine she found.
    Unfortunately, I can't identify this, but, it's definitely a collector's item and would make an interesting display. I hope someone can tell us something about how it works.

    From what I can see in your pictures, this is probably an early model blind hemmer, the needle that moves sideways not vertically was the best clue!

    It runs side ways??Wow Gee if you could get it in good working shape, the old goldie might be worth money; you ever watched "Ajntiques Road Show"?If you just want to keep it,that's fine.heck i love antiques.--I have a very old clock,not sure if i will ever get it fixed; where and whom can you trust with an old machine now??--I have one or two ladies' wristwatches,I have NO IDEA WHERE INNA STATE of Oregon I c0uld ever get them fixed.--Outside of Switzerland,I see the USA as a Huge Wasteland Of Crumbling Society and Goods.---It is depressing. If Time MVachines ever DID EXIST, I would go back,and stay there--beyond computers. (Anyone know of great real watchmakers near Oregon, id love to know.I miss my old wristwatch.sigh.)
