  1. I saw some post on the Bauer machine on here from Nov 2017. I guess they are kind of rare. Saw the pic of the 1909 one. Looks just like mine, down to the gold pin stripping. I may not be missing parts after all. I can make extra bobbins myself and have new shuttle boat/s made at a friends machine shop if need to. Have a few leeds on needles. Once I get solid info on them, I will pass that info to the few others who have these beasts.
  2. I tried to crop, still to big. Will give this a try. Thx
  3. It's actually a treadle machine. Won't let me upload the pic of base. Says its to big.
  4. It still work's great. He used it till he past last year. Just needs a good cleaning. And repaint. Still has wax on it from when the wax bowl was used. Ok. Thank you.

  7. Did it as kid in 4H, then in 2009 I went to Sturgis and saw a very nice solo seat. Couldn't afford the price, so i got back into it. I do a wide range of things from biker to cowboy, big or small. Do a lot of wall pix. I'm designing my own saddle, will be making my own tree as well. Now that l just inherited a bigger sewing machine, 1919 Bauer machine company harness stitcher. I can now start expanding and bigger projects that I've wanted to do, but didn't want to hand stitch.
  8. I just inherited this harness stitcher. My grandfather has had it since the 40s, if not earlier and used it regularly on the farm. So far all I know about it is it was made around 1919 by Bauer Machine Company, Jefferson Ind. There are a few pieces missing, but still usable. Needs a good cleaning and might repaint it to it's original color...black with gold pin striping. Need any info on manuals and IF and where I can get any of the missing parts. I do have the stand for it.
