    Steve,

    That Bradbury is a 'boot patcher'. The arm is slightly thinner than the Singer 29 series. I have one in the garage that I hope to someday get around to restoring. Sew many machines, sew little time. Sigh!!

    Oh my goodness it's an English machine, one of these http://www.sewmuse.co.uk/bradbury/bradburyindex.htm

    I can just make out where it says "Oldham" on the wheel, to the right.

    But with a pedal made in New York.

    You would have to be a serious collector to get that one.
