Ok, here we have the just arrived Elias Howe "New Family" Model A machine which I have been entrusted with. The previous owner decided, after checking out my last build thread for the other Howe, that I would be a good place for this machine to find it's way to! I am SO appreciative of that attitude.
This unit has a couple of things different from the first machine and i will try to point them out along the way.
This machine is complete. Yes, complete. Boat shuttle, bobbin, slides, and unbroken stitch length adjustment arm should allow this machine to sew when finished!!!
Now THAT is packed!!!!
and it worked! safe and sound
from the backside
face view - NOTE INTACT TAKE UP!!!!! my other on is missing this and now i can tune the reproduction that I am making to be 99%
the "dark underbelly" actually it is not in bad shape compared to the last one
ok, now the work begins......
