I found this cool manual on the crochet machine for instructions and parts. It is an old one and attached here.
I will post pictures of this machine as it gets set up and most importantly the stitch. My expectation is that this narrower 3/16 inch version of the 15 machine will be a real winner. And it's almost 100 (either 93 or 94 years old).
The very thick yarns/thread these machines use are pretty cool. Found a youtube saying they were using 5/2 in a model 18. Medium weight denim at 55 ends per inch can typically use 8 singles so this is just right for use here as it will be noticeably thicker on heavy canvas giving a really nice look for the crocheted edge. From the link is attached the page with picture of the model 24. I'm stoked at this rare find. Picture also states it is being used on the edge of a quilt...is this normal for old school quilts to have had a crocheted edge?
Best regards, Mike
