This machine will be a learning experience!  She turns very very smoothly.
The arm that holds the outer wheel takes a tremendous amount of force to move,
so must have originally been operated by some form of lever.

Here it is with the needle fully retracted

...and fully extended

Just to show how surprisingly small it is....

The needle lifts up to grab the backing thread? The edge being sewn is up and the fur is down? I have seen one for sale here and was wondering how they worked. Same machine and brand, but newer i think. There is an old singer over locker around here too. Just love how the timing is with these machines, looks cool when operating, looks odd when it is static lol.

Now I know why it's so hard to lift the presser wheel... that is one seriously butch spring.!!

 If you look carefully you can also just see on the right the remains of the chain that is designed to go through the bottom of the machine to a foot pedal which opens that up it's on the end of a levered arm

The needle stays perfectly horizontal and only goes back-and-forth. The little manipulator arm on the other hand does a lot of thread moving

This just arrived. The chain segment on the end of this foot pedal is a virtual match for the chain segment that remains inside the fur machine.    Once I get moved, I will clean this the rest of the way and mount it on a treadle set up for the fur machine to use.
