Arlington Machine Works industrial machines-Info?

Recommended Posts

Several of these old "Arlington Machine Works" industrial sewing machines have recently popped up in an online estate sale in my local area. I'm contemplating trying to purchase one, but I can't seem to find ANY information on them online. I'm assuming the Arlington Machine Works company is long defunct, but usually I can at least find a little info online for antique tool manufacturers. These are proving a little more elusive than most.

Anyone have any experience or information with these machines?

So I've been doing a bit more research, still very limited to what I am able to find. I have turned up a little info though. Apparently the Birch Bros. started their textile machinery business in Mass circa late 1880's, and at some point Arthur branched off to start "Arlington Machine Works" which was eventually re-integrated into "Birch Brothers Southern Inc." in NC circa 1960 which is still in business making machines today.
