    If you need more let me know. I have read somewhere that this machine may have been made by Wilcox and Gibbs for Feldman. BTW the W and G are fun to sew with.

    I would too. He was a wealth of knowledge on this era of machine. It is sad that he could not share that knowledge here with this group on this particular subject as he was the resident professor of the subject. I do have his email address. I think I may email him and see what he has to say. I hope I can convey his thoughts but I believe I am on probation here and don't want to do anything to jeopardize my standing here as well. An insight to my lack of recent participation. I am trying to be careful.

    Harris #9H Shuttle Hand Crank

    I haven't been on this sight for quite awhile. However I know most of you are very savy when it comes to finding out years a machine was manufactured. What year would you say this serial number is? # 3403710.

    Thank you, Claudia

    If it is a Singer, it looks like it was made in 1879. A very old machine.

    I have a Harris 9G Shuttle Hand Crank with serial number 3038608. I believe mine was made by the German company “HAID & NEU”, but I don’t know the age of mine either. I hope this helps you track down information on yours.

    Yup, that looks just like my machine. Does this machine take a special needle? It says on the slide plate to use only size #705. Is there a substitute?

    That, I don’t know. My database says that it takes a DBx1 or 16x257 needle, but there’s a question mark beside that entry. I wouldn’t swear to it. If the 705 on your slide plate is referring to a European needle, they may be talking about a Schmetz 130/705, which is the most common household needle in use (Singer 15x1, Japanese HAx1). I can’t verify a needle type for you.

    Yes. It’s about the size of a Singer 28.
