    My boss let me borrow his camera which shoots "high speed footage" and then plays back slow.

    This link is to a 4-5mb video clip of my 1946 Singer 241-12 High speed Industrial bobbin assembly at work.

    It starts out static, then we went about 1/2 speed, then full speed, then 1/2 speed again.

    When it is not going fill tilt boogie, you can see the needle pop in an out at the top and if you have quick eyes you can see the thread making the loop.

    Enjoy.

    Its from 1949 not the 1800s.

    I have two of those Light Running machine. One came with a needle, whooo hooo. I used a fine emery board to sharpen the needle to test drive it. It sews beautifully after I read the manual and learned that it operates backwards. I then learned that the needles are no longer available but there are "fixes" to make a longer needle work. Just tooo much trouble for me right now.

    how do you get it to play?
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Steve love your White Model A. I just peeked into this "Photo" shop to see eye candy. There is so much 'text' in here now it is hard to tell which shop we are in! Let's please keep this to photo's or it will become just like the Vintage shop with far too many pages to go through! Sorry, I shouldn't be commenting in here either and I don't mean to sound nasty, but this is a PHOTO shop, let's please go to the Vintage shop to talk! Page one has the rules for this shop!
