THIS is a stitching machine!

Recommended Posts

THIS is s stitching machine! This was used in production for the backseat on tall bootlegs of heavy military and riding boots. Pay attention on the direction of the rolling foot! Not sure if on this photo you can guess the actual size of this machine, but a normal patcher would look tiny next to it...

Now that's a machine. There was a Singer 11-24 displayed in this thread: 

Quite similar to you Pfaff, though it does a zig-zag stitch whereas I think yours does a straight stitch only. That old factory must have some real vintage gems.

Yeah, nice! Must be similar in size, maybe the arm is even a bit longer. I guess this Singer was used for sewing luggage?

Yes, indeed there's still lots of good stuff. Around my place we once had literally hundreds of shoe factories, most of them closed down during the 60s- 70s, lots of machinery was exported or scrapped. But sometimes you still find some good ones that survived in some old factory building or basement...but this factory here is exceptional, complete machine park still there,  you could start production right away.
