Default Franklin Hand Crank

Just picked up this little beauty for $35. 1900-1910 Franklin hand crank made by the Davis Sewing Machine Co. for Sears. It is a badged Minnesota "D" sewing machine. This is a before pic, haven't cleaned it yet.franklin-front-resize.jpg

It's beautiful and a hand crank! And you got it for a steal... Doesn't look like it needs much cleaning, either. Congrats.

When I got my Davis HC it took me a week or so to identify it. I couldn't read a thing on it.

I've been watching Call the Midwife and they use a hand crank on the show.
What a great find! I'm happy for you
