    I've found one for sale, and I'm considering a purchase, despite knowing nothing about it. I don't know year, make, model, or anything else.

    Just as a shot in the dark, does anyone have any suggestions?

    This reminds me of a machine to stitch shoes.

    Grab this baby. If the the price is right. I think every one that sews or likes machinery would be glad to have this machine. I know I would it.

    I've seen pictures of those before, I think it something like Willest or something. Sorry, I can't help more, but I would sure buy it if it's in your price range. I'm sure someone on board will be more help than me though.

    Oh, I've been looking for one of these, just because they are so unique. I believe they are made by singer and are called a Chain Stitcher.

    Thank you. That helped a lot.

    Strip the paint off of it, remove a few of the accessories, and it looks amazingly like the machine below.

    If it's unique, unusual or just plain weird looking I buy it. I'd say this one fits all three so if it were me I wouldn't have even asked, I'd have bought and then showed it off proudly! LOL
