    Default Found a beautiful transverse hand crank Kohler

    At least I think it is a Hermann Kohler. looks a lot like the Triumph model. Only marking on it says "Foreign" It sewed immediately after threading.. I am so excited.

    Craigslist, Lawrence, KS. The couple that had it bought it in Texas ten years earlier. They didn't know how to find the shuttle or even to tilt the machine back in it's base. It came with 3 bobbins. Lucky me. Can't find a serial # on it.. Oh well.
