Called by many the most beautiful sewing machine in the world.   I'm not even going to try to put this machines story into words when real experts have done a wonderful job.  Please see Alex Askaroff's wonderful article here: https://sewalot.com/agenoria.htm  And David Best here: http://www.sewmuse.co.uk/franklin.htm

Yes. 1 shuttle & 2 bobbins.  Have to remove the cloth plate to get the shuttle out.  We received a couple other accessories with it. 20200623_105905 (Copy).jpg  20200623_110027 (Copy).jpg  20200623_110429 (Copy).jpg  20200623_110810 (Copy).jpg  20200623_110530 (Copy).jpg

are you saying that you cannot open the rear slide and advance the machine until he shuttle is position and remove the shuttle?

I was able to get it out ok but couldn't get it to seat properly.  When I removed the cloth plate it dropped right in.  Could have been operator error or lack of practice.  Either way it's all good.  Now to try to find some type of a manual....probably next to impossible.
