This is aRare Antique/Vintage Singer 29-4 Cobbler's Leather Treadle Sewing Machine.
I could not find a serial number so I cannot date it.
This machine and base have been properly cleaned and oiled and sewsvery well, please see the picture of the stitch. I tested it on a leather riding boot. It stitched through a thick section of the boot with ease. The stitchis equal on both sides. Here is video of this actual machine working. The second video is a close up of it sewing so you can see it create the stitch.
The body frame aresolid.It will ship in two pieces so you will need to mount the head onto the base. There are 4 screws to do so. All you need is a medium sized flat blade screwdriver.
It comes with1 bobbin. The bobbin was disassembled and cleaned for smooth thread draw. The bobbin winder has an old rubber wheel. It still works, but will eventually need to be replaced. There is awasher that fits on the end after the bobbin is inserted.
It has a new treadle cord. It has two speed select pullies to choose from. It also has a 12" throat, that's body to needle. It also has the feed wire for inserting the thread down to the needle. It will ship with a piece of thread looped through the machine so you know how thread it.
The head has a 360 degree shivelling walking foot so you can rotate any way you need to.
Overall, the machine has asoiled and worn appearance.The decals have wear. Thereare alsosome chips and scratches throughout the machine.The frame is missing a drawer that fits below the head.
The base measures 28" x 19"and is 44" tall with the head installed.
This will ship freight. I have shopped around and found www.USHIP.com to have very competitve rates or you use Freightquote or your own choice of freight company. The dimensions are 39" l x 45" w x 34" tall. It is secured toa pallet in two pieces and total shipping weight is165 lbs. I will have to send an invoice after I get an exact freight quote. You can use zip 19426 for my origin and plug the numbers into UShip.com for an estimate.
Here is a link to UShip.com freight estimator; select Household Goods, then Funiture,add165 lbs for weight, put 19426 into Origin and add your zip. email me if you have any questions. You can also use your own freight company. I am easy to work with.
This can also be picked up. Do a mapquest/googlemaps search with zip 19426 to see how far you must travel. I live the NW suburbs about 45 minutes from Philly. (with no traffic)
