    Another for the collection - Foley & Williams

    At first glance, this looks a lot like a Eldredge/National machine, and they take the same size needle and shuttle.





    The F&W is slightly narrower, about 3/4" so the slide is shorter.



    It's also narrower



    This is the typical bed shape of the National - notice the raised area (New Home is like this too).



    And the F&W - quite different.



    And the location of the serial number - under the front slide on National,



    And in about the same place as Singer for the F&W



    And the best part - it takes a different set of attachments YEA!!!

    F&W has ties to Goodrich- and my box of Goodrich A attachments fits the F&W machine.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I've seen a few with the "Leads The World globe decal and it is so cool. What a great find! Thanks for the comparison photos.
