Default 1886? Avery Improved High Arm

Has anyone ever seen a Avery Improved High Arm machine before? Or any Avery machine? I just picked this up this morning. Any information anyone has would be appreciated. Thanks!

You find the neatest machines.

It doesn't say what length belt or what size needles it uses, but "Avery" is mentioned in a Greist advertisement from October 10, 1906. https://digital.hagley.org/islandora...dora%3A2004527

Thanks! This document says that a Singer N. F. needle is a substitute needle for Avery machines but I tried one and it's diameter is too small and won't even clamp in the needle bar.
