Antique Singer 29-4 Sewing Machine Head Cast Iron Leather Industrial Cobbler. This is the top machine only, I do not have the base for this one (I have another listed with treadle base).
It is old and has been in storage for years. It will need to be cleaned and oiled but looks OK. Please refer to my 12 detailed photos. In the whole range of leather stitching this is one of the handiest machines ever invented. It is extensively used all over the world for Boot and Shoe repairing, Furriers' work, Slipper binding, Harness work, etc.
The stitching is performed at the extreme outer end of the arm, which may be inserted into the interior of very small and long apertures like toes of shoes and boot-legs etc. The machine is unequaled for repairing boots and shoes and will stitch closer to the toe of a boot than any other; it will use waxed and coarse thread, making a tight seam; it also uses a fine needle and thread.
